Reddit Talks, Reddit's answer to the live audio chat app 'Clubhouse', will be shut down on March 21, 2023. 

The live audio chat platform, Clubhouse, gained popularity amid the lockdown. Many platforms, including Reddit, rolled out Clubhouse's "duplicates." 

Reddit blames "resourcing issues" that's leading to the shut down. As per Reddit, "Unfortunately, the 3rd party audio vendor we use for Talk is shutting down its service. In other words, the resources required to keep Talk live during this transition increased substantially."

Following the shutdown, Talks hosted after September 1, 2022 will be available for download to users. Users will be able to download Talks until June 1, 2023.
