Reddit talk

In order to compete with other evolving social media platforms, Reddit has introduced a new audio-based product called Reddit Talk to go head to head with the viral Clubhouse and Twitter Spaces.

While Reddit Talk is not widely available yet. Interested users, however, can sign up for the watchlist and get early access.

Reddit shared a preview of how the new service will work and it looks very similar to its competition with circular emoji icons for hosts and listeners. The features are also pretty similar, you can host live audio conversations in Reddit communities where users can also request to join the conversation by raising their hand, you can then invite, mute, and remove speakers during a conversation. Reddit also lets you block a speaker from re-joining the conversation.

Reddit Talk offers Clubhouse-like features

“If you’re interested in trying out Reddit Talk for your community, please add yourself to our waitlist and we’ll let you know when Reddit Talk will be available. During early tests, only moderators will be able to start talks, but any Redditor on iOS and Android can listen in. After these early tests, we’ll work with moderators to let other trusted community members host talks as well,” says Reddit in a post.

Reddit talk comes on the same day Facebook has unveiled a suite of audio-focused products, including a podcasting feature. and a feature called ‘soundbites’ that allows users to post short audio snippets to their feed.

Microsoft-owned LinkedIn is also working on an audio-based product.
