Twitter-rival Koo comes up with new and improved search features
While Twitter is in the process of changing its ownership, Koo is making difference in its features. The Indian microblogging software is revamping its app to reflect changes in looks and functionality. Both iOS and Android users have seen the changes. The new design is more of a user-centric approach. The platform’s UI has been improved and it is now smoother and easier to use. To make it simpler to display more information, Koo has deleted the left gutter area and stretched the material edge-to-edge. The change also seeks to eliminate noise and clutter, making the app seem cleaner. As a result, boosting the number of time users spend inside the app.
Priyank Sharma, Head of Design, Koo, said, “User delight is at the core of our brand philosophy. We constantly iterate, especially when it comes to our user interface, to provide our users with the best possible experience. We have already received great feedback from the community and this is just the beginning towards introducing superior browsing experiences on Koo.”

Following Apple, Google also adds privacy labels to Play Store
Google has announced that privacy labels will be added to the Play Store, providing consumers with additional information about the data gathered by Android apps. The change comes more than a year after Apple introduced similar labels for the App Store. They also inform customers about how much data apps gather. “We heard from users and app developers that displaying the data an app collects, without additional context, is not enough,” said Google. “Users want to know for what purpose their data is being collected and whether the developer is sharing user data with third parties.”
The functionality is currently available on the Google Play Store, and developers must complete the information on their apps by July 20th at the latest. The idea, as stated by both Google and Apple, is to provide consumers with better insight into how and why applications collect data, allowing them to make more educated decisions about the services they wish to use.
