Twitter brings DM searching to Android users

Android users can finally search their Direct Messages (DMs)

Twitter is rolling out a new feature for Android users, finally allowing them to search their Direct Messages (DMs).

“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,” Twitter said. 

iOS users reading this may be scratching their heads in confusion as this feature was first made available for iOS users way back in 2019.

Twitter has also announced on its platform that it will soon let users search for specific content in DMs. There are times when you want to search for a specific chat and you can only find it by typing in the words you remember. The micro-blogging site is saying it is working on this feature and it will be rolled out later this year.

“Waiting for the option to search your DMs for message content? We’re working on releasing that later this year,” the company said. Currently, you will only be able to search for chats by typing in the name of a group or an individual.

Twitter recently opened its Spaces feature to all users who have at least 600 followers. In case you are unaware, Spaces is an audio-only voice chat feature, which allows you to host stream voice chats with other Twitter users.

The company is soon expected to a new feature to Spaces, which will be called “Ticketed Spaces.” It will let you monetize Spaces for a monetary fee.
