After launching Chatdog on Product Hunt earlier this year, a popular feature request has been to add subreddit chats, and here it is!
Reddit is a popular news aggregator website ranked #3 in the U.S. and #6 in the world. Subreddits are sub-communities within reddit dedicated to different topics and moderated by users.
Here’s what’s new:
- Visitors are automatically added to the rooms 'Lobby', 'r/rarepuppers', and their city's room based on their IP, e.g., 'San Francisco'.
- Subreddit rooms with 'r/' in the URL include a feed with posts and a condensed chat.
- Clicking or tapping on reddit posts or images will open the thread on reddit.
- Type `/shake` into chat... 😆
r/rarepuppers and r/pics are a fun subreddits.
Prior functionality remains unchanged:
- Easily join or create new rooms.
- Rooms are public by default.
- Copy a room link to share with friends.
- No phone number, email address, or app download are required to join a room.
- Anonymous usernames are dog breeds (Anonymous Pug, Anonymous Yorkipoo, etc.).
- Registering a username is free with an email address and password.
- Chats bundle together by user and timestamp.
- Most links will include an Open Graph preview.
- YouTube links will include a video player.
- No chat history.
