👋 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 in ⚡️speed. 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 (📚 Studying), create your own (😅 Procrastinating), or enable automatic status, which shares little bits of context with your friends (for example, if you’re 🌲 In the wild). 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.
