Reddit Launches Predictions For Users To Test Their Knowledge

London, UK - July 31, 2018: The buttons of the app Reddit, surrounded by Pinterest, Whatsapp, and other apps on the screen of an iPhone.

Reddit has launched its first new user feature in two years, with users now able to share their knowledge on certain topics through ‘Predictions’.

Built upon the existing Polls feature on Reddit, Predictions takes it one step further, allowing users to predict the outcome of an event or conversation.

Reddit says it’s all about gamifying Polls and lifting user engagement by creating Predictions Tournaments for Redditors to compete with one another.

Mods in communities with at least 10,000 members will be able to create these tournaments, with users able to collect tokens based on the success of their predictions.

“At Reddit, we’re constantly looking for new ways to enhance engagement among redditors and communities,” the company said in a release.

“Part of this process is testing new features and seeing what sticks for redditors and mods in Reddit’s vast ecosystem. Today, after nearly a year of piloting with select communities, we are launching Predictions.”

Reddit Predictions have started rolling out from today.
