Working with pull requests on GitHub Mobile is now much easier

We are shipping improvements to pull request workflows on GitHub Mobile, making reviewing and merging pull requests much easier on the go!

  • The pull request description has been moved into the header, providing quick context about the changes without having to scroll to the timeline. Longer descriptions are truncated and can be expanded inline with a tap.
  • We brought the merge box designs more closely in line with By using clear colors and iconography, it is easier to scan through the overall status of a pull request to understand the current state of reviews, checks, and overall mergeability.
  • We added a contextual call to action in the Files Changed cell that will help people understand when their review is required, or when new changes have been pushed to the pull request since their last review.
  • When reviews and checks are passing, pull requests can be merged directly from the view without having to open new dialogs. We've also built a fun animation that plays during a merge which will make working on the go feel more satisfying!

You can now authenticate to SSH using a FIDO2 security key by adding a or SSH key to your account. SSH security keys store secret key material on a separate hardware device that requires verification, such as a tap, to operate.

This combination of storing the key on separate hardware and requiring physical interaction for your SSH key offers additional security. Since the key is stored on hardware and is non-extractable, it can't be read or stolen by software running on the computer. Additionally, the tap prevents unauthorized use of the key since the security key will not operate until you physically interact with it.
