Reddit Talk is the latest Clubhouse rival

Reddit has introduced a new sound product called Reddit Talk. The new service will compete with Viral Clubhouse and other audio-based platforms like Twitter Spaces.

As expected, Reddit Talk will allow you to host live audio conversations in Reddit communities. The service is not yet widely available. Interested users, however, can sign up for the watch list to get early access.

Reddit also shared an overview of the operation of the new service. The preview shows the familiar interface with circular icons for hosts and listeners. You can also request to join the conversation by raising your hand. Moderators will have the ability to call, mute, and remove speakers during a conversation. They can also block the speaker from joining the conversation again.

Reddit says it is also exploring ways to personalize the look and style of Reddit Talk through emojis and background colors. It also explores functions to support AMAs and other types of conversations.

“If you’re interested in trying out Reddit Talk for your community, add us to our waiting list and we’ll let you know when Reddit Talk is available. During early tests, only moderators will be able to start conversations, but any Redditor on iOS and Android can listen. After these early tests, we will work with moderators to let other trusted members of the community host the interview, ”Reddit said in a post.

Interestingly, the new service comes on the same day that Facebook unveiled a package of sound-focused products, including a podcasting feature. Facebook has also introduced a feature called ‘soundbites’ that allows users to post short audio clips to their feed. Microsoft-owned LinkedIn is also working on a similar concept for its users.

The rush to produce a sound-focused product was apparently driven by the popularity of the Clubhouse, which amassed millions of downloads in a matter of months. The growth is despite the fact that the platform is only available on iOS (from now on). The Clubhouse also recorded a record jump in its estimate. The one-year-old startup said it closed a new round of the C-Series led by Andrew Chen at Andreessen Horowitz. The Clubhouse is said to be valued at $ 4 billion.
