Users of Android devices may be able to log in using their Google accounts

9to5Google reports that Twitter is allegedly working on letting users log in to the social media platform using their Google accounts. Users who have enrolled with Twitter’s beta testing programme and have access to Twitter beta v9.3.0-beta.04 will be able to view this functionality. Also, this is only available for users on Android smartphones.

Twitter is reportedly working on a way to let users log in using a connected Google account on Android devices. The functionality is a part of the latest beta update. The micro-blogging platform is also reportedly working on rolling out a similar functionality to its users on iOS. This will help users to log in by bypassing the step to enter basic details on Twitter. The new Google account functionality is reportedly only available to users who have enrolled in the beta testing programme.

The report states that if users have already linked their Google accounts to their Twitter accounts, then the app will simply log in to their profile without the need to enter their password if the same Google account is logged in to the smartphone. Apparently, there seems to be no way to link an existing account to a Google account. However, users may be able to change their email address on their Twitter account to gain this functionality.

Users who attempt this login method on Twitter with an unlinked Google account will be redirected to the account creation page with a new, automatically generated handle. Users are cautioned before they attempt to try this new login method on their Android smartphone. Since this functionality is in beta testing as of now, it is not confirmed when it will reach all users but can be expected to arrive soon.

Similarly, Twitter is also reportedly working on introducing a similar login method for iOS using their Apple accounts.
