Reddit Launches Updated Feed Switching Process as Part of Wider UI Review

Reddit has actually introduced a small tweak in its UI, which will certainly see the elimination of separate feed tabs along the top of the major display in favor of a new drop-down menu to access your ‘Residence’, ‘Popular’ and ‘News’ feeds.

As you can see in this example, you’ll now have a different menu to change per feed kind.

For context, this is the current Reddit tab display screen:

As explained by Reddit:

” On the Reddit application, the House, Popular, and News (iOS just) feeds will relocate from the top of your application display into a drop-down menu. To switch over feeds you can either swipe in between them (which is the key way most redditors change in between feeds today) or merely tap on the drop-down menu and pick your wanted feed.”

So, considered that most Redditors already swipe across to change feeds, which is still offered as an alternative, this, functionally, won’t alter much, however it does make the app a little cleaner, with fewer options contending for attention on the main display.

The adjustment belongs to a wider re-think at Reddit regarding just how it can simplify as well as enhance the customer experience, which will certainly also see it exploring updates in these locations:

Feed Design – Improving the way that you connect with as well as switch in between numerous feeds on Reddit
Feed Expansion – Providing more certain feeds to engage with (believe Video gaming, Sports, National Politics, Beauty, and so on).
Feed Performance – Got ta go fast. As well as additionally effortlessly. And likewise with top quality that’s smooth like buttah.
Honestly, I do not understand why systems really feel the requirement to use cool lingo in their announcements, but yes, ‘smooth like buttah’ probably best summarize the goal of this brand-new growth push at the application.

Topic-based feeds might likewise be interesting, and also might additionally help Reddit fine-tune its advertisement targeting to certain audiences, if customers straighten with that said technique. Yet today, it’s all academic, with the only change being a small tweak generally UI.

However it looks like a good one? Again, it looks cleaner, and also the emphasis here appears to be right.

Hopefully, these additional modifications will further fine-tune Reddit’s vision.
