Notice anything new on your Twitter app lately? The tech company has launched a new ‘Explore’ option on its mobile app that brings together search, trending topics, moments and other topics all in one place.
The intention is to make it easier for you to find things that interest you, and it also means the Moments tab will disappear from your app, as will the dedicated Search tab. Live video will also feature in Explore, appearing at the top so you can find it more easily – whether you want to or not.
“Until today, you had to go to a few different places to find each of these experiences. As part of our continued efforts to make it easier to see what’s happening, we’re bringing all these together,” the company said in a blog post. “Nothing is going away – we’re just making it easier to find what you want.”
Twitter has been testing the Explore feature since last year, so you may have spotted it popping up now and again, depending on your location. It has already begun rolling out on iOS devices, with Android users getting the Explore tab in the coming weeks.
There may also be some additions to Explore depending on feedback in the coming months.
