Secret today received an update that will let you snoop in on secrets in the broader world. Initially, Secret was only limited to what a stream of your friends and what they liked and shared. But now with the latest update to Secret you can now look out beyond your friends to see what gossip is anonymously spreading in the world and around you in the Explore stream.
The Explore stream lets you see what's happening widely on Secret, or you can look at nearby posts and popular posts. Additionally, the user interface for Secret has been tweaked and improved.
Moving to greater openness in Secret will no doubt help with adoption — a service that only works when your friends are also signed up can be hard to get into if your friends haven't signed up or aren't using it. Access to the broader world and nearby posts will no doubt help to spurn adoption — or at least accelerate the spread of wild gossip, speculation, and rumors.
Secret is available for free from Google Play and requires Android 4.1 or higher.
