The tab also provides personalised recommendations based on user interests, that they gauge by evaluating communities they are already part of. There is also a feed with topic filters that shows an array of content based on recommendations. Reddit says it has added feedback mechanisms to ensure that the feed improves over time.

“We’re ushering in a new era of discovery on Reddit, with images and video top of mind,” wrote Reddit's Jason Costa, Director of Product for Content and Communities.

“We’re making discovering relevant content and communities more intuitive with the Discover Tab. It’s a great new way for people to explore and engage with hundreds of thousands of communities around the world,” Costa added.Communities that you discover and join, are added to a new Community and Profile drawer that make it easier to view all your content in one place.

The update has begun rolling out on both iOS and Android versions of its mobile app.
