Most of us use Instagram in one way or another, either for simply keeping up to date with what’s happening on social media or for sharing our lives with our friends. However, rarely do we constantly keep posting updates on our Instagram Stories and profile with posts throughout the day, to let others know what we have been up to. It seems like Facebook wants to change this with a new companion app for Instagram called Threads.
As per The Verge, Facebook is testing the new app, which keeps sending automatic updates to users that one selects. The updates that are sent apparently consist of location, speed, and battery life, alongside your regular texts, images and videos. The Threads app is said to be designed to share the said information with your ‘close friends’ list on Instagram and as per the report, Facebook is testing the app internally right now.
