As part of an initiative to promote “healthy conversation” on the platform, Twitter introduced its new updated camera, which has an interface similar to Instagram and Snapchat. Twitter’s head of consumer product Keith Coleman dropped the new feature at SXSW, which changes the way pictures, videos, and live streams are captured.

Users can now swipe left from the timeline to access the camera. Once inside the camera, each option showcases a different interface with an overlay option that can include one of six different colors for captions, locations, and hashtags.

Alongside the new function was the announcement of a new prototype Twitter app called “twttr,” inspired by CEO Jack Dorsey‘s first tweet. The app alters the default app appearance of the platform, introduces newly formated color-coded replies, and removes engagement counts such as retweets and likes. “It knows where you are and what’s going on around you,” Coleman said. “So if you’re at SXSW, it knows that, and it will suggest you add the SXSW hashtag.”

In other tech news, Spotify Premium users can now get free Hulu.
