Threads is bringing an option to save posts, but there’s a catch
Instagram Threads was a big deal last year, mainly because Meta owns it. Plus, it came out at the perfect moment when Elon Musk, the owner of X, made some big changes to the platform. Loads of people signed up for it pretty fast. In fact, it became the fastest platform to reach a million sign-ups, beating out OpenAI’s ChatGPT. It’s often seen as an alternative to X, with many similarities. However, like any platform, it has its pros and cons. Now, Threads is rolling out a feature allowing users to save posts for later viewing, adding to its list of features since its launch.
Instagram Threads is testing the save posts feature for limited users
Instagram boss Adam Mosseri shared this update on the platform. He notified users that Threads is testing a “heavily requested feature” which happens to be the ability to save posts. If you use Instagram or X, you’d know that this is a brilliant feature. It lets you save posts to view them later.
It’s highly useful when you catch something interesting on your feed. But want to view or read it later or share it with someone but not at the moment.
So, if you’re one of those testers and the feature is available for you. You can simply tap on the three-dot menu which is usually placed on the right side. No pun, intended.
Threads’ parent social media app Instagram introduced the ability to save posts in 2016. And as Threads evolves, it’s adapting one of the most used features.
The competition is on as more players jump in
Threads remains an active and one of the most used social media apps despite a massive fall in monthly active users. Meta confirmed during a recent quarter call that it has over 130 million monthly active users.
It’s working on several features for the app as the competition has peaked in recent months. Not only X, but Bluesky, Mastodon, Nostr, Post, and Spill are also worthy contenders.
