reddit_betaIt’s strange that Reddit does not have an official app. Sure, they have an official AMA app but in terms of an official app to browse its website, the closest we’ve gotten is probably Alien Blue which Reddit acquired back in 2014, sort of making it the official Reddit app in the process. However that will soon change.

Several months ago Reddit announced that they would be launching an official Android app and the good news is that if you like the idea of an official Android app, the website is currently accepting signups to beta test its upcoming app. If you are interested, you have until the 18th of December to signup for it via Reddit’s website.

However there is no guarantee that you will be selected to be part of the beta test, but you can go ahead and try your luck anyway. The initial round of testing will see a few thousand selected and given how many users Reddit has, this is actually a pretty small pool so good luck if you’re trying to land yourself a spot!

In terms of a release, there is no specific date given just yet but the company expects that it should be ready for primetime in the next month or two. As for iOS users, it seems that Reddit still plans on keeping Alien Blue around as the official app, but maybe one day we will see the Android version brought over to iOS.
