Reddit launches new video feed on iOS

The interface might look similar because it is inspired from the Chinese app TikTok

Reddit, the online discussion site, has launched a new video feed just like TikTok, to make its application more entertaining and provide users with all social media clips at one place.

 

After the launch of Snapchat’s Spotlight and Instagram’s Reels, now Reddit is also joining the race to compete against the video sharing app TikTok.

 

According to sources, the interface might look similar because it is inspired from the Chinese app.

 

Right next to the search bar the video feed option is present which can be accessed by the user via tapping the button and the app will show full-screen videos in a vertically scrollable list.

 

The user interface will also show up-voting and down-voting buttons, as well as comments and sharing.

 

This brand new video feed will show not only content from the subreddits you follow, but also suggested videos from other users and channels. The feature will be for iOS users, however it is still a mystery when they'll roll out the same for Android.

 

TikTok is currently the most downloaded app worldwide and even more famous than Facebook. So all the social media companies are now trying to compete it, but it's still hard to take the thrown.
