After showing a brief appearance on the Play Store a few days back, Meta’s latest Twitter-like app Threads went officially live on web for a short period of time for everyone to view and explore it. Threads is set to be launched tomorrow on iOS and probably Android too.
The app’s early access was provided to a handful of accounts, including those belonging to Mark Zuckerberg, Netflix, Instagram, Adam Mosseri, as well as some renowned creators and brands. These Threads profiles, however, were taken down after some time.
Threads’ interface looks very simple. Similar to Twitter, it has options of liking, commenting, reposting and sharing. There’s a separate section for viewing a user’s posts, while another section contains their complete reply history. Users of the app who are also users of Instagram will be able to log in using their Instagram account details.
The App Store and Google Play Store have also officially revealed the release date of Threads, and a threads.net homepage shows a countdown to the platform’s launch.
