Android users may soon be able to check in to Twitter using their Gmail accounts

Twitter Spaces Tested For The Desktop And Web App

As per 9to5 Google, Twitter is working on Google account integration with Twitter. This would allow users to log in or create an account using their existing details. If the integration is rolled out, you can bypass the need to fill in your details including your email address, name and in some cases even phone number, manually while creating an account on Twitter. Also, this would save you from entering your password every time you try to log in. If you have logged in to your Google account, you can log in with a single click to your other accounts as well.

Twitter is reportedly testing a new way to let Android users log in using a Google account.

Twitter is reportedly testing a new way to let Android users log in using a Google account. The news comes days after Twitter was spotted testing the possibility of letting iPhone users sign in using their Apple accounts. As per reports, the feature was spotted in the latest beta update, and it is currently available to the users who have signed in for the beta testing program. Most services these days allow users to log in using either their Facebook or Gmail accounts but Twitter wants to make things convenient for both iOS and Android users.

Notably, you will have you have to remember to keep your Google account logged in on your Android device to log in to your Twitter account without entering the password. “Attempting to sign in using a Google Account not previously tied to any Twitter account will initiate the creation of a new, automatically-generated handle. With that in mind, we’d suggest treading cautiously if you want to test linking an existing account before trying to log in using this new option,” the 9to5 Google report says.

If you have signed in for Twitter’s beta testing program, you can update your app to the latest Twitter beta v9.3.0-beta.04 version from Google Play Store. The feature is now live on the beta version of the micro-blogging app.

As of now, Twitter has the Log-in with Twitter SSO. Users can create an account on Twitter using their Gmail address but cannot sign in directly using the same Gmail ID. Although Single-Sign-On services that allow users to sign-in are pretty convenient, it also hands over a lot of control to the SSO provides.Live TV
