As others have highlighted, ideas for some of the new features were seemingly lifted from third-party Reddit clients.
First up, iPhone and iPad users will now be able to peruse images, gifs and videos in theater mode, which will allow them to view media in landscape mode and swipe left and right to see older or newer media posts. Similarly, the ability to open links in Safari instead of using Reddit's native in-app browser is another feature already found in Apollo. Not a fan of the official Reddit app? The biggest addition is a new user-to-user chat function, which Reddit has been testing for a few months, that's now going to be part of the company's mobile products in a public beta program. Android users are also getting the "speed read" button that iOS users have, which lets you quickly navigate through the top comments in any discussion.
Reddit knows that millennials love trophies
Both iOS and Android users are also getting the ability to differentiate their posts by adding flair while "Cake Day" icons - which acknowledge a user's Reddit anniversary - and trophies - which are earned through various accomplishments - will now be available through the app.
Another group of features launching today are designed for Reddit's moderators. Those include a new "mod mode" that will make it easier for moderators to approve or remove content, a mobile version of Reddit's desktop mod queue for handling content approvals and spam in bulk, and a mod management tool for adding new moderators on the fly to manage fast-growing subreddits.
