Reddit has announced a new audio tool ‘Reddit Talk’, which is basically Clubhouse within the subreddits, offering new ways for the users to engage within the app.
As you can see in the above picture the Reddit talk feature has similar to Clubhouse, with larger avatars for the speakers at the top of the room and then listeners under that.
Currently, you can use text threads, images, videos, chats, and live streams to have conversations and hang out with people in your communities. While these are great mediums, there are other times where having a live audio talk may be more useful or, frankly, more fun. So we want to partner with you to explore a new way for community members to communicate with each other.
This feature will provide new ways for the users to connect within the app, with all the Reddit users can join a room, listen in and react with the emojis. The listeners also have the ability to raise hands for the host to invite them to share their thoughts.
The audio social rooms seem to be an interesting addition as it provides the means for Redditors to improve the connection and engagement of their community by joining in active chats around their favorite topics. Reddit Talk is in the limited testing phase right now, if you are interested then you can sign up to the waitlist to be alerted when it is available to you.
