Reddit is launching a new 'Start Chatting' option within subreddits, which will allow end users to initiate an enclosed group discussion of up to five members at a time from that same community.

"This past month, as people around the world have been at home under various shelter-in-place restrictions, redditors have been using chat at phenomenal new levels. Whether it’s about topics related to COVID-19, local news, or just their favorite games and hobbies, people all around the world are looking for others to talk to. Since Reddit is in a unique position to help in this situation, we’ve created a new tool that makes it easier to find other people who want to talk about the same things you do."
