Experiment: homepage content suggestions in the KaiOS app
Open, MediumPublic

Description

Currently, user engagement with the KaiOS app is quite low. We will run an experiment to understand whether providing content recommendations on the app homepage leads to increased engagement.

There will be two groups with different homepage variants:

  • Control: Standard homepage, with search bar only
  • Trending articles: Feed of recent most-read articles in India, in addition to the search bar

More details in the experiment plan [WMF only].
