We all know that Reddit is a famous social news aggregation and discussion website. Many people are on Reddit because they want to be always updated on the latest news. Now the website has introduced a new feature called Reddit talk. It revealed about this Clubhouse-clone social audio on Monday. But the company has described Monday’s reveal as a Sneak preview. The feature is not yet widely available so we can expect more news about it in the future. Also, the moderators who want to use it in the subreddit have to be on the waiting list to get access. Further Reddit Talks according to the sources is a competitor to the apps and sites like Clubhouse, Twitter Space, and other social audio products. You can find all the details about the Reddit Talks here.

What is the use of Reddit Talk?
Reddit Talk is a social audio product that Reddit wanted to create so they can compete with the apps like Clubhouse. The Clubhouse is an invitation-only social media app where the users can talk with each other in voice chat rooms. It has the features to accommodate thousands of people. This audio-only app can enable the users to host live discussions and also participate in speaking and listening.
Reddit is not the only company that wants to compete with Clubhouse. Some of the social media giants like Facebook, Twitter, Discord and Slack are creating products to directly compete with Clubhouse. So Reddit Talks is one such product that is going to serve as a competitor to the Clubhouse. It will have several features similar to Clubhouse.
The Reddit Talks will be a place for the users to start Question and Answer sessions, host lectures, communicate with like-minded people and more. Also, communities can do their feedback sessions in this new social audio product. The company has explained that the Reddit Talk users can use text threads, images, live streams and many features in it. Also, they can hang out with the people of their community. So in many ways, Reddit Talks will be a Clubhouse clone.
How will Reddit Talk work?
The Reddit Talk will be available within the subreddits. Only the moderators can begin the Reddit Talk. But the Redditor using iOS and Android can listen to the audios and send emojis. Also, the listeners will be able to raise their hands for the host to invite them. The host can invite the speakers, mute and unmute them.
Now Reddit is testing the features for the host to customise how Talks appear. They can use emojis and background colours for it. Also, the users will be able to modify their avatar too.
If you want to try the Reddit Talks then you have to add yourselves to the waiting list. Then Reddit will inform you when the Reddit Talk will be ready for you to use. We can expect more features from Reddit Talks in the future.
Reddit Talk is going to be an amazing platform for the communities to get together and talk. It is an enjoyable way to share ideas and listen to others.
