Reddit began testing an update to its Live Chat feature that displays the number of Redditors who are participating in a Live Chat in real-time.

The platform is also testing a Happening Now page that will display active Live Chats and Reddit Talks in subreddits by a user, as well as popular conversations happening across Reddit.

Finally, moderators can now enable their communities to share photos from their desktop or camera roll directly into comments.

Reddit said existing safe-for-work subreddits can enable the feature, while newly created SFW subreddits will have it turned on by default.
