With this Instagram-like "Explore" feature, YouTube aims to widen recommendations and include diverse topics that its 1.8 billion users may have not encountered otherwise. While YouTube has expanded the experiment's reach, the company has not yet announced a definitive plan of rolling out the "Explore" tab for all users.
