Instagram Introduces Threads, A Standalone Messaging App


Facebook launched its new messaging service called, Threads which is a sub-product of Instagram. It’s a standalone messaging app which is designed to provide you with the best of chatting experience. The aim behind introducing this service is to let the Instagram users chat with each other on a separate platform just like Facebook’s Messenger app.

According to Instagram’s Product Manager Robby Stein, Instagram had already started offering users Close Friends facility allowing them to add their best friends to the list. This is the fastest way to let Instagram users share photos and videos quickly with each other.

Apart from making the photos and videos sharing experience much faster, messages from your close friend’s list will appear in both threads and direct sections. You will be provided with full control to make your chatting experience more user-friendly with your close friends.

This app will work independently and opens up directly with your smartphone’s camera app. You can share direct visuals with your friends or close friends’ list as per your needs. It is called sending visual messages to your friends.

The aim behind launching this new and separate messaging app, Thread is to let people share photos and videos privately to the people who matter them the most. You can also communicate with your friends on this messaging platform just like any other messaging apps. So you will get all the basic chatting features along with this app as well as the new visual messages.

Apart from this, users will have full control over sharing their Instagram’s posts directly using this application. You don’t need to manually use this app to share locations or where you at right now? You can simply make use of its built-in functionality to share things over the platforms.

You will be given three options to update your status as a new status or suggested status or Auto status. When you enable auto status, the app will share little information about you including where you at right now with the location. You can also disable this feature from the Settings app.

The app has been rolled out for both, Android and Apple Smartphone platforms.
