Facebook has launched a new messaging app “Threads” from Instagram. It is a new camera-first messaging app that helps you stay connected to your close friends.
Instagram in its official blog says “Threads is a standalone app designed with privacy, speed, and your close connections in mind. You can share photos, videos, messages, Stories, and more with your Instagram close friends list. You are in control of who can reach you on Threads, and you can customize the experience around the people who matter most. “
Features of Thread messaging App
#1 Stay Close to your “Close Friends”
Instagram launched the feature of “Close Friends” last year for sharing more personal stories with a select group of people you choose. Thread app now will allow you to message the people on your Instagram close friends list and you’ll have a dedicated inbox and notifications just for them.
#2 Share photos and Videos Instantly
Threads is the fastest way to share a photo or video with your close friends on Instagram. It opens directly to the camera and allows you to add shortcuts, so you can share what you’re doing in just two taps.
What About Instagram DM
Instagram direct message feature will continue to work same as before. Messages from your close friends list will appear in both Threads and Direct, so you have full control over how and with whom you want to interact.
