Reddit announced today a live discussion group competitor to Clubhouse which will provide voice support.
They did not announce a launch date, but they are moving swiftly toward a launch by inviting moderators to join a waitlist.
It is described as being in an early testing period.
After those tests have presumably worked out the bugs Reddit will begin allowing it’s moderators to invite redditors to participate. As of this writing, Reddit Talk is currently undergoing early testing. Once it launches, any moderator will be able to start a talk and anybody other than a moderator level can listen to the comment via a mobile device.
In the future, Reddit will allow them to allow redditors to become active on the site after these tests have worked out the bugs.
“We’re testing ways for hosts to customize the look and feel of Reddit Talk through emojis and background colors. Redditors can change their avatar’s appearance to fit the talk as well. We’re also exploring features to support AMAs and other types of conversations.”
