With a focus on how users consume content and an investment in quality journalism, The Post continues to experiment with innovative design and story forms that focus on platform-specific user needs.
The Washington Post will introduce today a new video interface called Your Three. When readers are on an article page, Your Three will surface videos similar in content without having to search. The carousel presentation groups three visually compelling, original Post videos based on related topics or themes. The featured videos will go beyond the news of the day and include deep-dive explainers on issues ranging from politics to energy to culture and more. Users can swipe between, or within stacks to find the most compelling video for them.
“It can be exhausting to browse the web and find video that is interesting and fun,” said Micah Gelman, director of video for The Washington Post. “With Your Three, we’re helping users to easily find video and choose what they want to watch.”
In August, The Post launched a vertical video player, which allows a user to view a vertical video in full screen. The company recently released a series of explainer videos addressing questions frequently searched about the 2016 presidential candidates. Click here to watch the first of these vertical videos.
