Twitter has finally brought Direct Message (DM) search to the Android ecosystem, after launching the feature on iOS devices two years ago
The DM search bar has arrived on Android, the company said in a tweet.
“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,” the company informed.
The DM search bar will help find older conversations and even actual words you typed in those conversations sometime “later this year”.
“Waiting for the option to search your DMs for message content? We’re working on releasing that later this year!” Twitter added.
In October 2019, Twitter brought the DM search bar tool on iOS devices.
Earlier this year, the microblogging platform announced it was testing voice messages in direct messages (DMs) up to 140-seconds long in India.
The experiment will be rolled out in phases to the audiences, making India one of three countries to have access to the feature, alongside Brazil and Japan.
According to the company, voice messages in DMs will make it easier for people to have conversations.
Each voice message can be up to 140 seconds long and can help people chat quickly — whether on the move or when there’s just too much to type.
