Reddit, a microblogging platform rolls out the comment search feature along with other search improvements. Reddit said that it is the most requested feature when the user survey is conducted over a year ago.
Reddit Taking the user feedback seriously, Reddit has now rolled out the ability to search comments on different posts using its built-in search feature. Previously, searching for something on Reddit provided results only for posts, communities, and people. However, now there is a dedicated “Comments” tab on the search results page for users to browse through the various comments that include their search terms.
With this ability, users will be able to search comments both in Communities as well as across Reddit for access to all discussions taking place on the platform.
Apart from adding the comment search feature, Reddit has improved search results to now prioritize posts instead of content types. The company also noted that the search function will now be able to recognize user patterns to deliver more relevant search results based on users’ Reddit activities. Furthermore, Reddit has updated the search UI with a simpler design.
