An update to the Twitter app for iOS and Android is available now, and brings major upgrades to a few of the app’s features. The Discover tab will show stories Twitter thinks are relevant to your interests, as well as a new Activity stream. The Activity stream displays friends’ favorites, retweets, or which accounts they have recently chosen to follow.

The search feature now provides auto-correction and spelling suggestions when searching for topics or people. Auto-complete will work for both user names and Twitter handles. The search box in the Discover tab will show recent searches when tapped, which is the only new feature that the Android update lacks.

Push notifications for follows, favorites, and retweets will also be implemented with the new update.

The Twitter update is available now for iOS and Android.
