Twitter has announced its rolling out new group messaging and mobile video features. Here's a look at the new features and how they work...

Converse with a group, privately
You might want to continue a public conversation privately with a smaller group, or start one based on a Tweet you saw. The group function lets you start conversations with any of your followers and they don’t all need to follow one another in order to chat. You can create a group in just a few taps. When you’re added to a group, you’ll get a notification.

Check out the video for details on how group messaging works:

Capture, edit and share videos right from your Twitter app
Starting today, everyone will soon be able to seamlessly capture, edit and share videos right from the Twitter app.

We designed our camera to be simple to use so you can capture and share life’s most interesting moments as they happen. In just a few taps you can add a video to unfolding conversations, share your perspective of a live event, and show your everyday moments instantly, without ever having to leave the app. Viewing and playing videos is just as simple: videos are previewed with a thumbnail and you can play them with just one tap.

Our unique mobile video camera and inline editing experience lets you capture and share videos up to 30 seconds in an instant. Twitter for iPhone users will be able to upload videos from the camera roll as well (a feature that will be available on our Android app soon). Here’s more information on the new mobile video camera.

Take a look at the video below for more details on how the new video features will work:

Twitter is rolling these features out to all users in the coming days. Starting now, you’ll be able to participate in group conversations other people start with you, and watch any of the public videos users post – like this one.

You can download Twitter from the App Store for free.
