Reddit has started rolling out “community muting” feature to provide users full control on the contents they wish to see. The feature will be available to the users of Reddit’s mobile apps over the next few weeks, and it will be expanded to desktop users in coming months.
You can use the new feature to mute an entire community, after which posts from that specific community will be removed from your notifications, Home feed and Popular feed. Users have to ability to mute up to 1,000 communities. Reddit notes that muting a community doesn’t restrict you from visiting or taking part in it, as you will still be able to view, post and comment in communities you have muted. If you change your mind, you can unmute a community at any time in your Settings, where you can also manage community notifications and other preferences.
There are definitely a few specific subreddits that are ubiquitous in Popular that I find eye-roll inducing; their ubiquity dissuades me from visiting Popular all that often. Since Popular captures high-performing posts from a wildly disparate range of interests and communities, that’s probably true for a lot of users.
This feature poses a solution to that problem and could make some users more likely to check out the Popular feed.
Users can also unmute a community at any time in the Settings, where community notifications and other preferences can be managed.
Reddit also said that it will incorporate mute to All and Discover Pages, after expanding the feature to the desktop version.
You can mute up to 1,000 communities and tweak your muted list at any time in Settings.
Unfortunately, this new muting feature is only available in Reddit’s iOS and Android apps for now. This isn’t the first time Reddit has rolled out new features first to mobile devices. It has become a fairly common occurrence in recent years. Nonetheless, Reddit was particularly clear this time that the new muting feature would come to the desktop and the web.
