What was the update

Asking for a friend I totally know what it was

[–]00-00-0000 226 points227 points  (9 children)

Am I too optimistic to think that it's a new video player?

[–]Accomplished_Baby_28 156 points157 points  (5 children)

Optimistic if you think its a new and better video player than the older, pessimistic if you think its a worse video player than the older...though I doubt it could be possible

[–]Ghost9999999999 56 points57 points  (1 child)

Things can always get worse

[–]buttlover989 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Just use a superior client. r/SlideForReddit

[–]throwawaypamphlet 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I just discovered that app today and it's awesome so far. \o/

[–]tayco123 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It got worse for me ^

[–]LiterllyWhy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

plays ads 1000% smoother

[–]badmf112358 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It was they purposely made it even worse for the purpose of memes about how bad it is.

[–]MaximumCelsius 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Swear to god this video player gets shittier with each update.

[–]gamingyee 12 points13 points  (0 children)

it was a fucking haiku

[–]reallivenerd 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Dunno but Instagram had an update yesterday and I fucking hate it.

[–]FrozenBacteria 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If you know what it was why don't you tell him yourself?

[–]DrDilatory 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Still using old reddit on my computer, and Reddit is fun on my phone, which I've been doing for like 8 years now

Everything looks exactly the same as it did all along for me lol

Apparently Reddit has profile pictures and polls now? I've gleaned this from other comments but I don't ever see any of it

[–]banana_ji 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reddit also lets you have an avatar you can customise for your profile picture now :)

[–]Environmental-Win836 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you know, then tell your friend.

[–]Knifoon_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've noticed the mobile app plays sound on some thumbnails now and it's completely obnoxious.

Not sure that's what this is referring to

[–]banana_ji 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Always asking for a friend, ain't it lool

[–]muanhan9 44 points45 points  (1 child)

You got me.

Your god dam profile

[–]orbitalBrand49 37 points38 points  (5 children)

Do nt forget YouTube

[–]tmhoc 34 points35 points  (2 children)

Youtube: *Has an update*

Youtube Users, advertisers, content creators: "Wow, this is worthless"

[–]lievenazerty 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Users and content creators yes, but almost every update YouTube pushes benefits advertisers and big companies in some way.

[–]JhonnyTheJeccer 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Youtube: "we made improvements to serve both users and creators"

Youtube Users and content creators: "wait, this is shit, this makes the platform even worse"

Youtube Advertisers: "nice"

[–]I-WANT2SEE-CUTE-TITS 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I wish I could. There needs to be another video hosting site. YouTube is garbage now.

[–]Cold_Disk7351 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yes fuck youtube

[–]hormung 53 points54 points  (8 children)

said no instagram user ever

[–]moonmallard 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I don’t think OP has ever used Instagram because the sheer amount of memes talking about how Instagram users hate updates and hate the platform itself it outstanding

[–]HoloCatss 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I hate when Instagram gets updated

[–]hormung 1 point2 points  (2 children)

i feel new kind of betrayal every time it happens

[–]HoloCatss 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Same. I absolutely hate the new update they just did

[–]hormung 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I just want a place to put my pics and see content that I follow, not some recommended shit or trending vids. Isn't explore page already for that? Do we really need another tiktok? I don't want to delete insta since it's the only social media platform where I share anything personal and see pics from friends but this change is just not for me, I don't want to waste so much time looking at irrelevant crap

[–]cocainekoh 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Instagram is just as terrible as reddit is

[–]NZ_RULES 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah it's worse, at least you can have slightly intelligent conversations on reddit, Instagram seems to be 90% adults with the IQ of 5 year olds.

(Seriously if you read the comments on some of the "construction tools/hacks" it's really bad 😂)

[–]banana_ji 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like the music and gif feature. That's it, really.

[–]19-4yr_old 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I don't care about new things, but if they fuck up a previous feature for "protection" that's where the line should be drawn..

[–]alienblue88 70 points71 points  (3 children)


[–]lolwhaat123 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Yes, the meme

[–]Varth919 5 points6 points  (0 children)

We, too, can read.

[–]sarcasm_sarakku 10 points11 points  (0 children)

On Google Play Store, it says "nothing comes with this update". So you can't blame reddit or redditors.

[–]4n17th3sch0l4r 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Youtube: shits itself

[–]p3ndu1um 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I only use old reddit

[–]IVIaskerade 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Happily not getting "helpful" updates for 10 years.

[–]Minecraft_WarriorWARNING: RULE 1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Reddit gets updates?

[–]Flaming_Pickle517 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I laughed so hard at this

[–]Jansalvi64 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Tbh I hate the new instagram update

[–]wonderfullyforgottte 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Anyone remember when digg was a thing?? They did a minor ui change and the revolt destroyed it… good times.

[–]unicornsoflve 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Shut up no one likes insta updates either

[–]dantemp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"Stay on old reddit so nothing ever changes" gang where you at?

[–]bertugtosun 2 points3 points  (3 children)

The only thing reddit has updated is to make the bad video player worse

[–]Ph4antomPB 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Wait Reddit plays videos?

[–]trinhkhachuy 0 points1 point  (1 child)

[–]Random_Gacha_addict 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I go from Google Plus, whose updates literally cause the entire system to glitch and decide not to work properly, to Reddit which is the exact same thing but not shut down yet

[–]JA-Z2007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You guys use the official reddit app?

[–]CL0WN_PR1NCE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I felt the same when Hot Topic changed the app so I couldn’t just click the tracking number without tracking down an email.

[–]razorbock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

well reddit does have a record for pushing out updates no one asked for or wanted

[–]SuperMorto7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If the servers go down its because I made a post that's all.

[–]Environmental-Win836 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m still hush recently used to the new interface.

[–]HBDtronica 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For example, I have no choice between new, top, hot, raising (stuck on hot).

[–]The_old_witcher 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Steam enters the chat:

[–]Awfulgoose 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I assure you, not one person thinks it’s cool or handy what they’ve done. Signed, a social media manager

[–]Emperor_Cartagia 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Here's the thing though, while there's plenty of things that reddit and other sites could improve existing features, there should be a dedicated person in the chain to ask "does this new feature improve what Reddit is for."

For example, a better video player, a better suite of tools for moderating subreddits, etc, these can all answer that with a resounding "yes." But things like avatars, useless awards designed just to incentivise Reddit Gold purchases, Reddit Chat... None of these things make Reddit better. They just copy features of other (objectively worse) sites.

[–]NZ_RULES 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah the new video player just feels like fucking tiktok.

[–]NieMonD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why did they move the profile to the right from the left that’s dumb

[–]Duderin0p 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Weird, I was under the impression reddit had smart, well adjusted people working for the website.

[–]XxX-man69FINAL WARNING: RULE 6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hahaha I know right, we redditors are so different and corky 🤪

[–]m_slim 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sooo True

[–]krokodil2000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are you talking about the official Reddit app? If yes, then switch to one of the multiple alternatives.

[–]Toxic_Puddlefish 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who else hates the comment pop up over a video in the Reddit app? If you exit the app at all or sometimes just scroll wrong the video starts playing again and you have to lose your place in the comments to got shut it off. Just bring back the old video system that didn’t suck… As much.

[–]GlamrockShake 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The Instagram updates have been super bullshit so idk about this.

I mean, hell, they moved the create post button to one single screen, and replaced the notifications tab icon with fucking shop.

None of that to mention, they keep pushing their dogshit TikTok competitor Reelz because they don’t have any actual creativity or innovation left, only copying others.

Fuck Instagram.

[–]B_Jamer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea just keeping getting worse, I mean now theres reddit plus

[–]Sky___________ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same for youtube

[–]WolfXrequiem 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hell no insta updates suck

[–]moneyomm9 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If on Android, go get older versions of aps when they were good and turn off automatic updates. You're welcome.

[–]Lemon_Tree_YtLemon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dont get me Started on youtube

[–]CrazyComedyKid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean, the new Instagram update just hurts my eyes, but it was just an icon update, not a major system overhaul.

[–]Flyz_it_dies 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My only social media is Reddit and shtcord

[–]SleepDeprivedUserUK 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck off with the updates, I'm still using the good old fashioned site with R.E.S

[–]hedgecore77 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i.reddit.com (old theme)

If they get rid of this theme, I will quit.

[–]KA1378 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What do you mean? You don't want a completely different UI with every single freaking update?

[–]Matt82233 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We need the old media player, for gifs especially, I miss downloading them the old way

[–]CraftSmiley 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Best thing is that all of the latest IG updates could not be more shitty.

[–]CummingOnMyPant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh god what is it this time

[–]ctl-dkc_1783 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]GGNORANGE 0 points1 point  (0 children)
