Reddit has introduced numerous features to offer users new years to participate in discussions and content. According to Reddit, the product improvements that are set to come later this year will make it easier and more efficient for users to find, participate in, and contribute to communities by posting, voting, and commenting.
Reddit takes inspiration from Instagram, TikTok
One new feature to come on Reddit is the Video Feed, which looks similar to that of Reels and TikTok. Reddit will sort video content into the Watch feed view and text content into the Read feed. Over the next few weeks, the feeds will contain posts from subscribed subreddits and suggestions as the company considers how users react to the divided views.
According to Pali Bhat, Reddit’s chief product officer, creating a feed solely dedicated to video content is a way of “videofying” the platform. Bhat also stated that the change would enable Reddit’s 500 million monthly users to engage with their preferred format and switch between formats more seamlessly. Reddit may also explore features such as video reactions in the future.
New Read feed with a user-friendly interface
Apart from the Video feed, Reddit has also introduced the Read feed. While the Video feeds serve videos, the Read feed delivers posts, allowing users to surf and read posts.
Further, Reddit has introduced a user-friendly interface that enables users to locate pertinent content and participate in communities more efficiently.
Another feature to have come is the capability for users to search for content within post comments. Each post will now have a search icon at the top, which allows users to explore the comments within.
More improvements coming in the future
Reddit says that it plans to improve its video player, chat capabilities, shopfront updates, and other features in the near future. Furthermore, the company has committed to unveiling a fresh web platform.
