In a move to offer greater value and an edge to creators, the multi-lingual micro-blogging platform – Koo – has introduced an immersive browsing experience for its users across both iOS and Android. The new design has been crafted with a user-centric approach and is visually appealing, intuitive and engaging. In a significant upgrade on its predecessor, the new interface is smooth and easy-to-navigate. It is designed to provide a sleek and contemporary experience for users.
The new browsing experience amplifies the overall user interface. By removing the left gutter space, content is now spread edge-to-edge, making it easier for users to scan for relevant information. It also reduces unnecessary noise and clutter, making the app look cleaner. The user experience is seamless and frictionless. The experience is centered around maximizing usability and the time spent by users on 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.. The introduction of an immersive browsing experience is the first step towards building the best multi-lingual micro-blogging platform in the world. We have already received great feedback from the community and this is just the beginning towards introducing superior browsing experiences on Koo.”
