If you opened your Reddit app today and noticed a new video button next to the search bar, you may be a tap away from trying a forum platform grip on TikTok. TechCrunch writes that a video feed that collects content from the sub-applications you follow and some of you didn’t start publishing to iOS users on Friday.
Loading feed into my own Reddit iOS app, the experience will inevitably be like TikTok. You can browse a vertical, eternal list of videos with content from Reddit’s vast world. Interaction options include voting and underestimation, as well as commenting, a “prize” (using Reddit’s internal currency to purchase medals and reactions), and sharing.
It’s not clear how Reddit pulls video content from sub-applications you don’t follow. TikTok is famous for its algorithm, but TechCrunch The company declined to comment on whether Reddit had introduced something similar. When asked Limit how it recommends the content, and if the video feature had an official name, Reddit declined to comment.
It should come as no surprise that Reddit is pushing the video forward. Not necessarily because other platforms and social networks like it Instagram and Snapchat They have their own TikTok competitors, but because Reddit meant just as much when it bought Dubsmash. The Creative Video app is not included in this special feature, but Reddit still plans to include its video tools – and completely new ones – in its platform in the future.
Reddit has not shared precise information about when you can expect the feature to hit your device or whether it will come to Android, but it is coming to use now.
