Twitter has started rolling out a new Explore tab for users to search, find Moments, trending topics, and live videos, right from within the iOS and Android apps.
Having tested Explore for the past few months, Twitter has now announced that it is starting to add the tab on its mobile apps. In recent blog post, Twitter Product designer Angela Lam explained:
There are many ways to see what’s happening on Twitter. Outside of your timeline, trends show you what topics are being discussed right now, Moments capture the most popular stories so you can catch up, and search helps you find anything and everything.
Up until now, users had to search in different place to find each of these. Twitter is bringing them all together in the new Explore tab. Starting on iOS and Android soon, Twitter users will be able to “find trends, Moments, search, and the best of live video, all within the new Explore tab.”
The new explore tab is a result of Twitter looking at different ways in which users can find and use trends, Moments, and search on the platform. Users told Twitter that having an Explore tab helped them easily find news, what’s trending, and what’s popular right now.
Nothing is going away – Twitter is just making it easier to find what you want. Explore will begin rolling out today on Twitter for iOS, and in the coming weeks on Twitter for Android. Make sure you have the latest version of your app to check it out. And of course, we will continue to listen to your feedback to make Explore even better, based on your thoughts and some ideas we have up our sleeve!
