Official Reddit Android app beta signups start, enter for your chance to test

Reddit is building its own official Android application, that much we already knew following the acquisition of Alien Blue back in October of last year. Now it’s starting to proceed on letting folks beta test it, though the tests aren’t open to everyone just yet.

Reddit recently posted on – where else? – Reddit, that it’s now accepting sign-ups for volunteers to test the latest Android beta. You’ll need to take a quick survey and let Reddit know how frequently you use the service, what third party apps you use now, how often you comment, what your username is and more. It’s quick, though, and after that you’ll enter into the process, potentially earning a spot as an official Reddit for Android app tester.

Submissions are running between now (they opened December 11) and December 18 at 11 a.m. Pacific. Reddit says it doesn’t know when the app is going to officially launch, but says we can “expect it sometime in the next month or two.” Also, Reddit doesn’t guarantee you’ll be selected for the beta, but it’s worth a shot.
