Reddit has launched a series of new features to boost user engagement across its app.

It added voting and comment count animations for feeds and posts that can be shared in real-time.

Newly added typing indicators will now display when 2+ users are commenting on a post. Commentors will be displayed as anonymised avatars.

Similarly, reading redditors will be grouped as anonymous avatars.

If a new comment is being submitted, users will now be able to instantly see it and comments are being sorted by new with lists being updated in real-time.

The additions are aimed at fostering a better connection between users of the Reddit community and making engagement feel more urgent and as though it is happening in real-time.

The new features will be available for iOS and Android users and desktop users of Reddit.
