Instagram will close Threads: all its functions will arrive on the main app

More news and changes for Instagram which in recent weeks, on the one hand has added new features to its social platform, not least some on the Reels, on the other is also trying to eliminate everything that has become “superfluous”.

After taking a step back with IGTV, which has actually been incorporated into a larger “Video” tab in the profile home, the end of Instagram Threads, the messaging app, is also coming stand alone “camera-first”, launched in October of 2019 on the ashes of Direct, designed to share “with one’s own inner circle of friends “, in a dedicated and private space, both photos and videos and messages.

In a first rescue attempt, Instagram had revamped the user interface and added some new features to Threads, including support for posting photos and videos on Stories and opening them to all contacts, not just the inner circle.

However, even these changes did not have the desired outcome: the app is not used a little and those who use it obviously do not do it with great pleasure given the reviews on the various stores of applications.

Once support ends, users will be logged out and the app will be removed from the stores. By the closing date, all Threads features will be available on the main Instagram app.
