Reddit recently introduces its new feature called “Discover Tab” which helps Redditors to find new content, communities or engage across the Reddit platform with just a simple tap. Reddit says, “During initial testing, we saw one in five people join at least one new community after using the Discover Tab.”
“We’re ushering in a new era of discovery on Reddit, with images and video top of mind,” said Jason Costa, Director of Product for Content and Communities at Reddit. “We’re making discovering relevant content and communities more intuitive with the Discover Tab. It’s a great new way for people to explore and engage with hundreds of thousands of communities around the world.”
To use this new “Discover Tab,” Reddit users can simply tap on the new compass icon on the bottom bar – to the right of the home button. At the top of the Discover Tab, Redditors can filter the feed to a specific topic to find new content and communities. Underneath the topic filters is the feed where content is shown.
Reddit has also introduced two more features along with the Discover Tab feature – “New Community” and “Profile Drawers.” Both features help Redditors to organized their communities in the app.
To access “New Community” in Reddit, tap the drop-down menu at the top left on the home screen, from there, Redditors can easily find their communities and custom feeds. Reddit says this new Community Drawer is divided into four sections:
- “Moderating entry points” in which moderators can see their mod feed, mod queue, and the subreddits they moderate.
- “Your communities” where the communities Redditors subscribe to can be sorted and customized;
- “Following” which shows Redditor accounts a user follows;
- The “r/all” entry point
To access “Profile Drawers,” tap your profile icon from the top right of the home screen, from here, Redditors can access their profile and customize it easily.
