Reddit Launches Official AMA App To Better Browse Its Popular Q&A sessions
Reddit has launched a new dedicated mobile app for its popular Ask Me Anything (AMA) interviews. The app is now available for iOS and the developers of this app have announced that the Android users will be able to get their hands on it as well by the end of the week.
There is a large number of Internet users who visit Reddit regularly to get all sorts of information and this AMA feature of the site is quite popular as well, because it allows everyone to ask questions to a specific person about a certain topic.
However, not a lot of people can use the computer all the time due to constant travelling and other issues, which is why this app will be really helpful in expanding the website and also giving a closer look at all the trending interviews by notifying you of what exactly is happening on the website, thus keeping you informed.
According to the reports, the site had more than 133 million monthly unique visits as of August which makes it a force to be reckoned with, and I am quite sure that the popularity of the app will hit the roof in an instant now that it is released.
The Reddit AMA is the most used feature of the website and the app for this specific feature was very much expected as a lot of people were looking for a platform where they could easily ask questions to the people like the president of United States Barrack Obama, Microsoft’s Bill Gates and a lot of other celebrities, and get answers for all of their queries.
Senior Vice President Ellen Pao stated in an interview to Variety:
We want to make it easier for new users to join Reddit and experience all the awesome content. That’s part of the overall goal of becoming a more mature company.
We’re excited and happy to grow but we’ve never been super proactive about it, it’s always been done organically. Now it’s time to be more proactive and grow.
Pao continued on to say that the reason they are opting to create this app is that they have realized that the world is now moving to mobile and a lot of people are now accessing the Reddit website through their mobile phones, which is why this new Reddit AMA app has come into existence.
People behind this app are looking extremely confident about its success, and now that it is available for iOS and will be available for Android in just a week, we will see what the future has in store for Reddit and Reddit AMA App.
