Facebook’s Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg just announced the initial version of the newest app, Threads.
Threads offers a new, separate space for real-time updates and public conversations. The vision of the app is to take what Instagram does best and expand that to text, creating a creative and positive space to share and express your ideas. In addition, Threads was also built by the Instagram team.
Just like Instagram, you can also connect with friends and creators that share the same interests as you do, and that includes the people you follow on Instagram. Moreover, you can also access existing suites of safety and user controls.
How do you join Threads?
To join Threads, you start by using your Instagram account to log in. Afterwards, you can have the option to customize your profile specifically for Threads.
Users who are under 18 will be defaulted into a private profile when they join Threads.
The core accessibility features available on Instagram today, such as screen reader support and AI-generated image descriptions, are also enabled on Threads.
Threads from people you follow and recommended content from new creators you haven’t discovered yet will appear on your Threads feed. The recommended posts can be up to 500 characters long and include links, photos, and videos up to 5 minutes in length.
Furthermore, the app allows you to easily share a Threads post on your Instagram story.
The team will be rolling out the app in more than 100 countries for both iOS and Android. As a result, people can now install the app from Apple App Store and Google Play Store, respectively.
Additionally, new features will be eventually added to enhance your experience and make the whole app efficient as much as possible.
Meanwhile, Threads was also able to attract more than 30 million sign-ups in less than 24 hours.
Overall, don’t forget to drop your feedback and tell us what you think of the newest app Threads. – WhatALife!/Val
