The existing Play section has three categories- trending, Airtel Xstream, and Wynk Music. The Trending sections display the trending content from both Airtel Xstream and Wynk music sections. The Airtel Xstream section offers Live TV channels, premium movies, and TV shows. The Wynk Music section is the basic version of the Wynk Music app available inside the Airtel Thanks app. It does not allow users to set Hello Tunes or download songs.

Users are required to enable the beta version of the Airtel Thanks app to get the Explore section. To get the Beta version, open Airtel Thanks app and tap on More. Open the Settings, tap on App Personalization, and turn on Airtel Thank App (Beta). The Beta app will replace the Play section on the app with the new Explore section.
