Reddit is a popular social media network that was created as a forum. The large forum is organised into thousands of groups, or subreddits, where users post, comment, and discuss pertinent subjects. Because of the platform’s nature, it is also a large repository of pictures, whether they be memes, hilarious photos, gorgeous artwork, or simply wallpapers for PCs and cellphones.
Reddit, although being an image-heavy site, lacked image-led search capabilities. However, this is changing as the platform has implemented a new option that allows users to search solely for photographs on its iOS and Android applications.
The feature is only accessible on Reddit’s native mobile applications, and it is not yet available on the internet. Users will be able to search for certain keywords and instead of browsing for articles, they will be able to look at photographs, GIFs, and videos.
Because the new function does not distinguish between the three, users will have to browse through them all to discover what they are searching for for the time being.
According to The Verge, who talked with Reddit spokesperson Courtney Geesey-Dorr, the company is working on introducing the capability to the online version, and it might be available soon.
Reddit's new feature lets users search for images
Simply go to the search tool to use the function. The large magnifying glass icon at the top of the app represents it. You may look up whatever you want, such as a humorous meme, a photo of a kitten, or a clip of your preferred team scoring a goal.
You should now see a variety of categories, including Posts, Comments, Communities, etc., just beneath the search box. A new tab labelled “Media” ought should be shown on the far left side of the selections. To view the updated image-only search results, tap here.
There is no ability to arrange the results by upvotes, post time, or amount of comments, which is something to keep in mind. As a result, particularly if it is not a keyword-friendly result, you should be ready to scroll quite a bit before finding it.
