The new "Explore" tab arrives on Android and iOS — YouTube

YouTube is on a roll this year. When 2019 started, YouTube considered changing the limit for offline video quality, brought YouTube Premium and YouTube Music to South Africa (First African country), started hiding subscriber counts form the public, rolled out Topic Filters on the Homepage, revamped the Up Next Screen and made YouTube Originals free.

Google has announced the introduction of the new "Explore" tab in the Android and iOS versions of the YouTube app. But, the aspect that makes the Explore tab different from the current Trending tab is that it allows you to easily access new and fresh content across Gaming, Music, News, Movies, Fashion & Beauty categories. The feature seems to be live on all Android and iOS devices I checked here at the Beebom office.

Finding Gaming content on @YouTube's mobile experience has never been easier. Hopefully, it's something YouTube considers adding in the future.

The most incredible part about this is that its not all Fortnite and Minecraft.

The Six Nations clash between Wales and Scotland is still due to go ahead in Cardiff on Saturday with a crowd of 70,000 expected. All matches in Scotland, including Sunday's Old Firm derby between Rangers and Celtic, have also been indefinitely suspended.

The new Explore tab will also serve as a home to new features like "Creators on the Rise" and "Artist on the Rise" which will help you discover up and coming creators on the platform.

In the post on Google's support page, the YouTube team states three advantages of this Explore tab - "Easy access to destination pages", "More prominent Creator & Artist on the Rise section", and "Continue to see what's Trending on YouTube right now". According to Google, Trending displays the same list of trending videos to all users, wherever they are in the world.

In a recent post on the YouTube Community forums, a Googler has revealed that the company is doing away with the Trending tab on the YouTube app and replacing it with a new Explore tab.
