Reddit Mobile App Updated

Reddit announced a number of changes to its iOS and Android apps designed to make its mobile software a more interactive and social way of exploring the site. 

The biggest addition is a new user-to-user chat function, which Reddit has been testing for a few months, that’s now going to be part of the company’s mobile products in a public beta program. Reddit is also adding a new theater mode for viewing images, videos, and GIFs from visual subreddits like r/pics more easily on mobile, as well as live comments and the addition of the iOS app’s speed reading button for Android users.

In addition to new features for users, Reddit is also adding new tools for community moderators. Those include a new 'mod mode' that will make it easier for moderators to approve or remove content, a mobile version of Reddit’s desktop mod queue for handling content approvals and spam in bulk, and a mod management tool for adding new moderators on the fly to manage fast-growing subreddits.  

Now, mobile is where a lot of the company’s attention is being paid, and the effort looks like it’s paying off with much-needed features arriving at long last.
