Reddit Begins Testing GIFs Within Chats

The platform is also experimenting with notifications when specific posts or comment threads are updated


Reddit began testing the ability for Redditors to add GIFs to chats on Android, iOS and the web.

Users who are part of the test group will see a new GIF button and, just as with chat messages, images and GIFs within chats can be reported and removed.

The platform began testing a new type of notification that enables Redditors to receive updates on specific posts and comment threads.

Users in that test group can tap a notification bell icon or the three dots overflow menu on posts or comments to opt for notifications on new activity.
