Instagram has today announced that it is making an update to its search and discovery functions.  With this new update, the photo sharing app will now be able to highlight news and information to its users in real-time.


The all-new Explorer page, with trending Tags and Places and more powerful search will now make it easier to find people, places and tags you are looking for.

‘’With more than 70 million photos and videos posted to Instagram every day, wherever something is happening, chances are you can see it here. Whether it’s behind the scenes at the NBA Finals, on the runway with the latest fashion trend at a favorite club with a local band, people are capturing moments large and small on Instagram. But, until now, there’s never been an easy way to find these moments’’ the company said in a blog post.

According to the company, the new Explore which can be found by clicking on the new magnifying glass now surfaces trends as they emerge in real-time, connecting you to events and conversations both near you and around the globe.

To start, Instagram says these updates to Explore will only be available in the United States but it is working to bring it to the rest of the world after it fine tunes the experience and set it up to work well in other countries.
