Yandex Integrates Recommendation Feed into its Browser
Jun 8 16
Yandex unveiled a new version of its browser and Zen, a personal recommendation feed, on June 8. This service will be available to Yandex.Browser users at the bottom of the screen, both in mobile and desktop versions. Basically, Zen is similar to search, explains the service's head Viktor Lambert. However, search results are based on specific user requests, whereas Zen offers users new and interesting information. The internet giant hopes that the new recommendation feature will result in the browser being used for a longer time. Tests carried out in 2015 showed that the number of resources accessed by a user per week rose from 2.7 to 4.4, while the time spent using browser quadrupled to 20 minutes. Moreover, the integration of the new service will allow the company to monetize the browser in additional ways, for example, with the help of native advertising that will appear in the feed. It is also expected that the recommendation service will attract new users although the company doesn't provide specific forecasts. Currently Yandex.Browser is used on 30m devices daily. Zen has been translated into 15 languages and localized for 24 countries. In India, for example, the company agreed with some mobile device producers on the pre-installment of Yandex.Browser.
