* New! Introducing video notes, a new type of captioned video message that turns anything you say into text that appears on your video. It’s like texting, without typing. *
👋 Hey, this is Threads – an 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.
Share photos and videos lightning fast. Use camera shortcuts to send them to your Close Friends in just two taps. Now with video notes, Threads can automatically turn anything you say into text on your video.
Share What You’re Up To with Status
Create and save your own status or enable automatic status, which shares little bits of context with your friends. 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 to them on Instagram.
