Reddit app’s new ‘Discover’ tab makes it easier to find new content

Reddit has created a new tab that aims to make it easier to find new content.

The web aggregator today announced a new Discover tab in its iPhone and iPad app with the goal of making it easier for people to find new communities and content to enjoy.

Reddit said the content appearing in its Discover tab is based on the communities Redditors already belong to, as well as time spent, explaining in a Thursday blog post“If a Redditor subscribes and spends a lot of time in football and baseball subreddits, the Discover tab will offer them other sports-related content.”

Users can also tell Reddit to show them more or less of a certain category, or hide specific content.

The Discover tab is in the bottom navigation bar of the mobile app, replacing the old Communities tongue. To access the subreddits you have joined, you now need to click on the top left corner of the House page — where you usually accessed your profile. And finally, you can now access your profile by clicking on the top right corner.

Jason Costa, Product Manager for Content and Communities at Reddit, wrote in the blog post, “We are ushering in a new era of discovery on Reddit, with images and video in mind. We’re making discovering relevant content and communities more intuitive with the Discover tab. It’s a great new way for people to explore and engage with hundreds of thousands of communities around the world.
