Almost two years after rolling out a DM search bar on iOS, Twitter has announced it’s bringing the feature to Android as well.
Later that year, the feature was made available to all users on iOS. Now, almost two years after the first test, Twitter’s Android app is finally getting its own DM search bar as well.
We’ve brought the DM search bar to Android and are rolling out an improved version that lets you search for all of your old convos, not just the most recent ones.
Waiting for the option to search your DMs for message content? We’re working on releasing that later this year! https://t.co/wAQxSokJt6

The new DM search bar has been improved and now lets you search for all old conversations – not just recent ones. Also, later this year, another upgrade will bring the ability to search for specific words within DM conversations; previously, you’ve only been able to search for the people you had conversations with.
This is all great news for users, as it makes Twitter’s messaging feature a lot more useful. Conducting long conversations in DMs and not being able to search through them has been a bit of a problem, for sure.
While we’ve always been able to use Twitter’s advanced search, it feels better knowing that you can more easily track important conversations where they happen – on mobile.
