Reddit is testing in-platform live streaming capabilities. The live streaming capabilities were announced by Reddit, where the platform highlighted the Reddit Public Access Network. The network will undergo an experiment where users can live stream video content. The live streaming experiment will last one week.

It is probable that the platform will take the information gained from the live streaming experiment, and look at potential improvements. Reddit could then incorporate this information in a full rollout of the Reddit Public Access Network.

Currently, live streaming on the platform will have to follow certain rules. Less than 100 streams are able to be run at the same time. Additionally, each stream will have to run under 30 minutes. Rear-facing cameras will be used as the default for live streaming on the platform.
