If you have been waiting for the web version of Meta’s Threads and have been impatiently refreshing on your browser, just check once again. The Web Version of Meta’s Threads is finally here and as of 24th August 2023,  it is live for all as disclosed in a post by the Instagram chief Adam Mosseri.

Initially, there was so much hype around the web when Threads was being launched. You couldn’t reshare or like any post even though the buttons for the same were present there. But, when you hit them, a QR code would be displayed requesting you to download the Mobile app. Although, it was possible to manually navigate to a users’ specific profile, but you couldn’t browse feeds, post, reply or even sign in to your account from the browser. You will now be able to surf your Threads feeds, post content, interact with other posts and more using the web application.

Threads app had seen a considerable slump in user engagement after its initial launch and many attributed this to an absence of a web version which is truly a significant barrier. Now that it is live, it will be very exciting to figure out how many and which of the missing features will appear next.

Let us now see what the present web version of Threads has to offer:

1. To navigate to Threads Web Version, click here and sign in using your Instagram account. You will find the mobile app and new desktop web interface to be pretty much the same, although there are some small differences. The icons for navigation can be seen at the top of the page while the button to ‘switch’ between the ‘For You’ and ‘Following’ feeds is available at the bottom left corner.

2. You can click on the ‘Search’ icon in the top navigation bar but presently, it only searches for users, not specific posts or hashtags.

6. To start a new Thread, simply click on the ‘Start a Thread’ link available at the top of the page. This will popup the textbox for posting a new Thread.

The web version of Meta’s Threads does not enable you to do everything. You cannot edit your Profile, Post or send a post of Instagram DMs from the web.

Closing Comments:

Meta’s Threads team has promised that things will get better soon. Presently, it can be said that only the bare-bones functionality has been activated although that too is a promising start as many users prefer to use social media apps on the web especially because most of them spend their time on desktop browsers.

It can be anticipated that the plummet in Threads usage after its big launch will be arrested with an improved Threads Web Application with enhanced features.
