About this app

Say more with Threads — Instagram’s text-based conversation app.

Threads is where communities come together to discuss everything from the topics you care about today to what’ll be trending tomorrow. Whatever it is you’re interested in, you can follow and connect directly with your favorite creators and others who love the same things — or build a loyal following of your own to share your ideas, opinions and creativity with the world.

A few things you can do on Threads…

■ Access your Instagram followers
Your Instagram username and verification badge are reserved for you. Automatically follow the same accounts you follow on Instagram in a few taps, and discover new accounts too.

■ Share your point of view
Spin up a new thread to express what's on your mind. This is your space to be yourself, and you control who can reply.

■ Connect with friends and your favorite creators
Jump to the replies to get in on the action and react to commentary, humor and insight from the creators you know and love. Find your community and connect with people who care about whatever it is you’re interested in.

■ Control the conversation
Customize your settings and use controls to manage who can see your content, reply to your threads, or mention you. Accounts you’ve blocked will carry over from Instagram, and we’re enforcing the same Community Guidelines to help ensure everyone interacts safely and authentically.

■ Find ideas and inspiration
From TV recommendations to career advice, get answers to your questions or learn something new from crowd-sourced conversations, thought leaders and industry experts.

■ Never miss a moment
Stay on top of the latest trends and live events. Whether it’s about new music, movie premieres, sports, games, TV shows, fashion, or the latest product releases, find discussions and receive notifications any time your favorite profiles start a new thread.

■ Open social networking – coming soon
In the future, there will be ways to discover more content and reach wider audiences: we are planning features that allow you to search for, follow and interact with users on open, interoperable social networks that we believe can shape the future of the internet.

Edited review as they finally fixed the sync issue with the feed. I'm giving this app a 3 out of 5 as it's not a resounding app, I am dealing with the stigma of the stuff I was originally reading may "disappear" again if the sync issue resurfaces, and the Threads app has no cross-device compatability (I'd rather use this on a browser/have 3rd party tool support).

It needs some improvements. It's gotten a little better in the past few weeks. There are still some kinks, and it's lacking some features that should be obvious. My biggest issue with the app is that some videos will have no sound. When you click the sound icon to turn on the sound, the video freezes and won't play. So you can either watch it with no sound or move on. Opening the full video doesn't help. Following their channel won't help. Nothing works! It's only on some videos. Seems random.

the home feed remains incredibly busted. seriously about to uninstall this app if it doesn't get fixed soon. it's the same interaction every time: 1. open the app 2. start scrolling down 3. start reading something interesting 4. start thinking about a reply 5. random reload/refresh 6, it's gone. have to memorize the name of each person so I can search for their profile and go back to the thread that will inevitably disappear after I start reading it on my home feed. it's awful. bad app.
