The new update to the Mastodon Android app brings lists to users to help them follow the news. With this new feature, users can “create custom lists and categorize your followers based on specific topics or interests.” To announce the rollout of this new feature to their Android app, Mastodon took to their official blog.
In this blog post, Eugen Rochko, the Mastodon CEO and founder advertised this new feature as a way users can declutter their home feeds. Well, its usage doesn’t just stop at decluttering one’s home feeds but extends to their engagement. With this feature, Android users can pick topics that they relate to and create custom lists with these topics.
Users can use this new List feature to gain more control over the content they interact with on Mastodon. Lots of Android users of the app will be asked to update their apps to access this List feature for usage. This feature was previously available on the Mastodon web platform and is now making its appearance on the Android app.
Take more control of your Mastodon Android app home feeds with the new List feature
The Mastodon Android app is now getting a list feature with a new update. This update is now rolling out to Android devices around the world and it’s bringing more than just the list feature. Users will be able to use this feature to customize their home feeds to their tastes.
There are also a few design upgrades that are coming to the Mastodon home feed on the Android app. These upgrades will make navigating the home feeds and other areas of the app easier for users. But let’s look at how Android users can access the new list feature and personalize the feeds.
Tapping on the drop-down at the top of the screen will pull up an option page where users will find the lists option. From here, users will be able to create and manage lists that they are open. Selecting the create list option will let users name the list they’re creating, add members to the list, and perform other actions.
Lists that users create will be displayed under the list option on the drop-down page. These lists will give users access to content that fits the name of the list. For example, if a user creates a list and names it “sports” then the content the list will provide will relate to sports.
This is a very useful feature that Android users of the Mastodon app will come to love. The iOS users will have to wait until Mastodon rolls out an update bringing this feature to them. Regardless of this delay, the team at Mastodon is working to get this feature out to iOS users as soon as possible.
