Instagram Threads App – Now Connect with your Close Friends More Conveniently

After Snapchat, every other competitor in the market is going crazy to introduce a messaging app that is as inspiring as Snapchat. Likewise, Instagram has also come up with an amazing new messaging app called “Threads” that lets you connect with your close friends!

Threads app from Instagram has many amazing features in it. Threads is a great deal for sharing location, images, and videos with your close friend. To explain more about Threads, here are its top three features that makes the app stand out.

1: When you open the app, you will see a default camera (You might as well know where this idea came from). You can capture photos, record videos and send them to your closest friends. You can also share your location with your friends to let them know where you currently are! One downside is that this camera has no filters. You can also, add customizable shortcuts of your friends by adding their profile pictures so you can send them picture in no time.

2: It has an Inbox, which is very much alike Instagram’s direct messages, but it is only for your close friends. You can also initiate group chats with your close friends on Threads.

3: It also comes with a status screen just like Facebook, WhatsApp, and many others. If you want to create a status, you can simply click on an emoji, type some words then choose from the pre-populated statuses by Instagram. One important thing to note here is that you can choose the time of your status’s visibility.

Another aspect of this status screen is that you can opt for the “auto status” that will refresh your status without having you update it manually every time. It might sound unsafe to many people but Instagram does not extract the location of the user.

As Facebook has already seen much criticism, it would not want Thread to go through the same. This is the reason why Thread is protected from multiple threats and security concerns with amazing privacy. Even if auto-status is a part of this app but you will always be notified of the status and your permission will be required to update it.
"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.", explained Robby Stein, Director of Product, Instagram in a press release.
The app is likely to give tough competition to Snapchat. Hopefully, this app will not face the type of privacy concerns that Facebook and Instagram has once faced.
