The new update of the Reddit mobile app makes navigating through comments easier

As announced through the official Reddit blog, the iOS and Android mobile app has received a new update aimed at “removing obstacles and reducing friction points”. Among the changes implemented to achieve this goal, we must highlight the improvement that has been made in navigating between comments.

To be exact, this navigation between comments in the Reddit mobile app has improved in terms of instant loading of comments, once the user has clicked on the comments button in the app, and the context of the post in question remains accessible while reading the comments. In addition, general navigation between different conversations in the posts has been improved.

Reddit improves comment navigation and overall usability

Going into more detail, it should be noted that, in addition to comments loading much faster now; if we click on the comments button of a post in the Reddit smartphone app, this action will take us directly to the top of the comments themselves, so we will always have the ability to review what has caused the conversation taking place in the comments.

As we mentioned, the context will be kept in view thanks to the implementation of a “context bar” (a dropdown bar, that is), which will allow us to review that post, whether it is a text content, compressed image or video. Simply, when we are reading comments and this bar appears at the top of the screen, we will have to click on it to be able to see the original post or an image or video in an enlarged way. With these changes and the improvement that has been added for this purpose, conversations on Reddit are now much more consistent, regardless of the type of post it is.

Being more specific, Reddit conversations are now more consistent, in addition to what has already been mentioned, because a unified media player, immersive transitions, and consistent gestures have been added, as indicated by the social network. “Simply swipe up to view conversations and swipe left to view new content,” they add.

We will have to see if with these changes in the Reddit app for iOS and Android the points of friction between users and the network end up disappearing. Certainly, these changes should put an end to it, since these improvements have been tested by other users prior to their final implementation.
