Auto-Caption/long videos

Please allow the app to upload more than just 15 seconds to our story ;/ I want to start using auto caption for a business i work for, and we normally just record a whole video and upload to our story. However, though threads will auto caption the entire video (let’s say, a 45 second vid), it will only POST the first 15 seconds to the story. Even if i send the story to an individual, they only see the first 15 seconds. it is a hassle to break up our videos perfectly into 15 seconds just to close caption it. why not offer this in the main app for accessibility???? i have deaf family members who would LOVE this to be a common thing.

also WHY is the camera button so far?? the three people it “recommends” i don’t even EVER message them??? i always accidentally click their film button instead of the regular camera and it tries to send to them

Everything I need from instagram in one place- perfect for students!

This app surpassed my expectations. The layout is great, no distractions: essentially, this app is everything but Instagram posts in a user’s feed. Direct messages are very easy to access and are organized by friends to make it super simple to find conversations. The layout within the messages is very simple as well but still keeps the main Instagram functions including the reactions with emojis. Adding to a story is simple enough as well (although I rarely use it in general), and I enjoy the separated stories from close friends away from the rest, organized by time of publication.

The only part I wish were improved would be the view when someone sends a reel through messages. It’s not a big problem but the cut of the reel remains the same as a square post even if the reel has content on the top or bottom (and if you have the app, you can open it normally there).

This app has replaced the Instagram app on my phone since I love the clean finish and organization throughout. Highly recommend to anyone that wants the main features of Instagram, wants to stay social without spending hours scrolling mindlessly, or just wants to keep the messaging feature without much else. There are also some neat touches- like the status, which is a fun way to start conversations or see how others are going. Amazing.

Don't read the reviews, it was updated!

I see a lot of other reviews mention missing features and whatnot. The app must've been recently updated, since I didn't find anything missing (well, except chat themes) from the regular app. DMs to everyone, camera filters, replies and custom emoji replies, pretty much everything. It even has some features that the regular app doesn't have, like a way to see a list of all sent images in a chat.

I was literally think the other day "wouldn't it be cool if the communication part of ig was available as a separate app?" And lo and behold, this thing was brought to my attention! Truly ideal if you constantly find yourself opening ig to reply to a message only to have yourself sucked into the feed and finding two hours later that you didn't even do the thing that you intended in the first place. This is a great solution for procrastinators alike. Procrastinators who also need to reply to people's messages.
