Discover some of the best examples of how mobile apps announce their features while the users are using the app.
Mobile-first companies constantly create new features, but it's not enough to develop them – you also need to ensure users know about and use these features. For that, in-app feature announcements are a proven method for effectively conveying the value of new features.
Here are five mobile app companies that employed innovative strategies to launch and boost adoption of their new features.
Netflix announced a new feature to help users never run out of content to watch - Downloads
To get users acquainted, Netflix introduced a full-page overlay with an exit button. This type of announcement throws subtlety out for a toss, but that’s okay when the feature is extremely important to your growth.
The ‘Spaced Repetition’ feature is a proven learning technique that is based on flashcards and aims to help with memorizing.
It was announced using a carousel placed inside a half-screen modal. The entire carousel provides guidance related to what the feature is about and how it will benefit the users.
When Duolingo launched its paid subscriptions as an experiment to monetize its service, the announcement came in the form of a full-screen overlay. This was used to showcase the subscription options, benefits, and a call to action for users to upgrade.
MobiKwik launched Xtra, a super flexible investment feature designed to cater to the needs of young investors.
To highlight this new offering, an engaging Picture-in-Picture (PiP) video in the background was used, encouraging users to explore and start investing with the Xtra feature.
In a bid to improve monetization, the team at Jar launched “GoldX”. GoldX facilitates Jar users to lease gold to retail jewelers, who can then use it as part of their working capital.
Users landing on the homepage on an app launch are immediately shown how they can save and earn better with GoldX using a spotlight nudge.
