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.

It’s the lack of features for me 😒

I know I’m late to the party and all, but dang, I don’t even know if this party was worth coming to.

Auto-captioning works great (granted, I haven’t thrown any obnoxious words at it to try to figure out yet), but I want my video filters! Not the crazy face changing ones, just the whole camera/vibey ones. And you can’t change the font of the captioning like you can in your regular stories.

If the captioning is really the only special thing you can do in this app - you can already private message a video to your friends in the main app, tf? - why not just make that a new feature IN THE MAIN APP? Y’all are taking up space on my phone for.......what exactly?
