Hey, this is Threads – a new app for keeping up with your close friends. It's the place for you to quickly share photos, videos, statuses, and Stories with your Instagram Close Friends list.
Close Friends Only
Threads works with the people on your Close Friends list, so you're in control of who can reach you on the app. You can create and edit your list anytime on Instagram or Threads.
You can share photos and videos lightning fast. Use camera shortcuts to send them to your close friends in just two taps.
Share What You're Up To with Status
You can choose from a selection of pre-set statuses, create your own, or enable automatic status, which shares little bits of context with your friends. You can choose whether to use status, and only your close friends will see your status.
Continue Using Instagram
Messages from your Close Friends will now appear in Threads, but you will still have access them on Instagram.
The latest version contains bug fixes and performance improvements.

Just close friends ?
I personally believe this app is amazing. I get to show what I’m doing every hour! But why only be able to share that with just my close friends ? There should be an option where I’d only be able to show my close friends, or be able to show all.
I don’t have a problem with being too open, or just open in general. Why be limited when I should be able to show people that aren’t really my close friends but close enough to not be ashamed or embarrassed. Maybe it being open to all is too much, how about just to whom I’m following. For now I rate this app 3 stars.
Another thing I’d like to address, why shouldn’t I be able to do this on Instagram; set my status I mean. Wouldn’t it be so much easier and less work? There’s already a lot of features on Instagram, and I understand that. I just find it so much more difficult to go between two apps when I simply just want to change my status.
Merge this app with insta
The features I’ve seen in Threads have so much lovely design. I love the animations and the UI is clean. Why can’t you just merge this with instagram dms instead? The dms lack a lot of features to begin with to compete with other messaging platforms such as Telegram, Messenger from Facebook, and WhatsApp. The fact that you had to make a whole other app just for messaging seems like a step back. Instead of giving these features to a wider range of people. This app is good no doubt but I feel like the function is flawed given that I have to switch between apps just so I can change my status. Even then I want more people to see it other than my close friends. The status feature could be so useful. These are all personal preferences and views on how Instagram can be better. Merging this app into Instagram dms would save a whole lot of time.
My Review for Threads
I’ve downloaded the app since the day it launch. Although it’s a really neat app it’s lacking features. I tried sending GIF’s and it doesn’t work, i sent voice notes and noticed you can’t skip forward the the recordings. Facebook owns Whatsapp, messenger, instagram, and threads. With all that being said what is the purpose of having 3 MESSAGING apps with different names on them? Why not merged all 3 of then together and make it one messaging app with all the features, options, and customization of all 3?
All thought it’s fluid and has some nice colors the most i’d give it is a 3 stars. I’d give Whatsapp and messenger 3 stars as well, adl me why? Well because why the need of 3 messaging apps? They all serve the same purpose “communication” now merge’em until then my stars stay as 3 stars.
