What is Threads?

Threads is a camera and messaging app from Instagram designed for keeping up with your close friends.

Threads works with your Instagram close friends list, which you can edit at any time in the Instagram app or in Threads. If you don’t have a list, you can set one up on Threads when you download the app.

With Threads, you can:

  • Quickly send a photo or video to a close friend because Threads opens directly to the camera.
  • Share what you’re up to with your close friends. You can choose from different statuses or set your own.

Threads conversations will also remain in the Instagram app, so you can continue accessing your chats in both apps.

Threads is available in the Google Play Store and the App Store.
