The new features announced by Reddit are:
The ability to search within post comments
Now users can search for a particular word or phrase in the comment section and the user interface will bring forth the posts with the words.
Users now have the option to choose between ‘Read’ and ‘Watch’. Depending on the option they choose, they will be able to optimise their content with text browsing or video content appearing in their feed.
A decluttered interface
The new interface will also make it easier for people to find relevant content and contribute to communities faster.
In the blog, Pali Bhat, Chief Product Officer of Reddit said, “We have an inspiring and enduring mission to bring community, belonging, and empowerment to the world, so we are doubling down on simplifying Reddit – with user satisfaction and international growth top of mind. This means making Reddit easier to use for everyone. By focusing on the core tenets of Reddit, new and existing users coming to Reddit will be greeted by better experiences and options to discover new and interesting content and communities in uncluttered spaces.”
Reddit is currently working on introducing its updated web platform to deliver fast and reliable experiences to everyone globally, new updates to its video player to enable redditors to easily engage in conversations while watching, chat enhancements, new storefront updates and more.
