Update, May 4, 2021 (02:48 PM ET): It looks like Reddit is down right now for many around the world. According to Down Detector, outages have been reported over the last half-hour or so. Hopefully, the site will be back up soon so you can check out the latest memes.
Original article: If you’re trying to cast some upvotes or measure something with a banana, you might be disappointed to find out that Reddit is not working. It’s something that rarely happens, so that might come as a shock. An outage is often the cause for this, but it could also be an issue with the app on your phone. Here’s a quick guide on how to fix any problems with Reddit you might experience.
Is Reddit down for you?
- Check if Reddit is down for everybody
- Check your Internet connection
- Make sure there aren’t any issues with the app
- Restart your phone
- Report any issues you are having
1. Is Reddit down?
If Reddit is the only app or site not working for you, it is likely that it is down for others too. Before attempting the other steps below, make sure that this isn’t an outage.
Down Detector is a good tool to use. You can search for Reddit on the site or go directly to its Reddit page. You’ll see a notice saying “possible problems at Reddit” or “problems at Reddit” if the issue is widespread. You can also report issues.
Reddit keeps you informed about the site status as well. Head over to Reddit Status to see information about everything that helps keep it up and running. You can also tap on the “subscribe to updates” button at the top right corner to get notified in case something goes wrong.
2. Check your Internet connection

If the Reddit app or website isn’t loading, make sure that there isn’t something wrong with your Internet connection. You can be facing problems with your home Wi-Fi connection or mobile data plan. You can check if the connection is the issue by simply opening another site on your PC or phone browser. If nothing loads, your Internet is down.
On your phone, go to the Quick Settings drop-down and disable and enable the data connection. Make sure that you are in an area with a good network signal. If the data connection is still down, you will need to contact your network carrier.
In case there’s a problem with your Wi-Fi router, restarting it usually does the trick. If that doesn’t work, we have a handy troubleshooting guide that you should check out.
3. Make sure that there aren’t any app issues
If the status checkers show that there aren’t any problems with Reddit and your Internet connection is fine, you might be running into some app issues. Try force closing the app and restarting it. If that doesn’t work, the best option is to uninstall and reinstall the app from the Google Play Store. Also, make sure that the Reddit app is updated to the latest version.
4. Restart your phone
Like many tech problems, the simplest and most effective solution might be to restart the device. The same idea works here as well. Restart your phone or laptop and see if the problem goes away.
5. Report any problems you are having
If you’ve tried everything on the list and Reddit is still not working, you can report the bug or problem to the devs directly. Go to r/bugs and mention the issue you are facing with the site or phone app. You will also see a running list of bug fixes, updates, and known issues with the mobile apps in r/redditmobile.
Google asks Wear OS users to fill out survey with update expected soon
Google I/O is taking place next week where the company will announce updates and future improvements across its various platforms, operating systems, and online services. Android Central reports that some users on Android have been prompted to fill a survey to help improve Wear OS.
There has been much speculation about Wear OS and what direction Google may be steering the platform. Ever since Google’s Acquisition of Fitbit, it was rumored that Google planned to launch a Pixel-branded smartwatch, but that never materialized.

In recent months, Wear OS has been seeing gradual updates to core features like Google Fit, and more recently, it received an update to the built-in Gboard formatted for tiny-screen input. Custom Tiles are expected to come with the Spring update as well.
Wear OS is expected to be a significant focus at this year’s Google I/O given the amount of time it’s been since Wear OS received a significant update. As of this writing, there is currently no replacement app for Google Play Music, which was fully retired last year and succeeded by YouTube Music, which still has no app for Wear OS.
It’s going to be interesting to see how Google will optimize Wear OS for Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform.
Unannounced Realme Narzo 30 stars in hands-on video ahead of launch
Realme’s Narzo 30 family is so far comprised of the Narzo 30 Pro 5G and the Narzo 30A, but there’s a third member coming soon. This will be the ‘vanilla’ Narzo 30, which was already spotted in a benchmark last month.
Although we still don’t know exactly when this phone is due to become official, someone has already gotten their hands on a review unit, and promptly posted an unboxing and hands-on video on YouTube – of a phone that isn’t even announced yet. Here it is for your viewing pleasure.
The device comes in a blue Narzo box, and has a 6.5-inch IPS LCD FHD+ 90Hz display with 580 nits of maximum brightness, a triple rear camera system (48 MP main, 2 MP black and white, 2 MP macro), 6GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage (with a dedicated slot), the MediaTek Helio G95 chipset at the helm, and a 5,000 mAh battery with 30W fast charging support.
It runs Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 on top, weighs 192g and is 9.4mm thick. This unit is in the Racing Silver colorway. Unsurprisingly, there’s a soft jelly case in the box too. The phone is made of plastic and the fingerprint sensor is embedded in the power button on the right side. A 3.5mm headphone jack is on the bottom.
Redmi Note 10S receives MIUI 12.5 update right before launching in India
Quick, let’s play a game of “which Redmi is this”? Can you name, off the top of your head, what the Redmi Note 10S has going for it that’s different than all the other Redmi Note 10 series devices? No? Well, it’s the one with the MediaTek Helio G95 chipset, if that helps.
It became available last month in specific markets, and is going to be made official for India on May 13. Now just a few days before that, it’s receiving the update to MIUI 12.5. It’s still going to run Android 11, of course, just with the newer skin on top.
MIUI 12.5 was unveiled for international markets in February, following a December announcement for the Chinese market, and since then it’s slowly started to make its way to more and more Xiaomi and Redmi devices. The pace still isn’t very fast, but it should pick up over the next few weeks.
The builds that are on their way to the Redmi Note 10S are as follows: 18.104.22.168.RKLEUXM for Europe, 22.214.171.124.RKLMIXM for other global markets, and 126.96.36.199.RLLINXM for India. This will either be preinstalled on units that will go on sale in India, or will be presented as a day-one update once you take the phone out of the box.
In case you need a quick refresher, the Redmi Note 10S has a 6.43-inch 1080×2400 AMOLED touchscreen, 6/8 GB of RAM, 64/128GB of expandable storage, a quad rear camera setup (64 MP main, 8 MP ultrawide, 2 MP macro, 2 MP depth), a 13 MP selfie snapper, and a 5,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging.
