Meanwhile, last week, the company announced a new update to Mastodon for Android with a complete Material You redesign.

With the new update, users can choose to hide boost/favorite counters, remind themselves to add alternative text for media uploads, change their default posting language, hide all content warnings and much more.

The company also added filter management into the app. So, users can now view, edit and create filters for specific phrases or keywords, and customize how and where exactly those filters apply.

Moreover, the platform added the ability for users to temporarily pause all notifications.
