Reddit makes its new desktop web design open to first wave of users
Reddit Redesign Team has rolled out the new Reddit.com desktop design to a small percentage of users. Reddit has been working on redesigning their web UI but it has all been in private beta until now.
Reddit announced a few months ago that they are planning to redesign Reddit website as a part of the continous improvement of the site. Reddit has added lots of new features in the past, most of which were developed by the community as CSS tricks or third-party add-ons for browsers. Reddit, taking inspiration from them, will be adding new features that will make Reddit more user-friendly. Even subreddit mods will get new tools and features, such as bulk actions and setting post requirements.
The new design comes in three forms:
Reddit redesign team has randomly selected a small number of users to test out the version 1 of the new Reddit design. They will add more features & improvements to the site and roll out the design to more users in the coming weeks.
Users who’re lucky enough to get the access to new design can see the change on the desktop site. User’s who want to join the preview program will have to wait for an opt-in program that Reddit is planning to roll out to all users in coming months ( kind of like open beta ). For users who don’t like this new design can always go back to the old design by visiting old Reddit.
Reddit values user’s input for design, you can go to r/redesign subreddit to provide feedback and suggestions to the team through posts and comments.
