Threads Introduces Edit Button and Voice Threads – And you dont have to Pay to use it

2 Mins read
  • Threads will allow users to unlimited edits for up to 5 minutes
  • The editing and voice thread feature is free and will be available to all
  • Users need an Instagram account to log in to Threads

Threads, Meta’s response to the fast-paced world of microblogging platforms like X (formerly Twitter), has been on the scene since July. Now, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, in a Thread post announced the rollout of two exciting features for Threads: an Edit Button and Voice Threads. The great news is, unlike X, Threads is making these features available to users without any charges. Let’s dive into the details.

What’s New with Threads

  1. The Edit Button: Threads is introducing an Edit feature that enables users to make changes to their posts. This feature, unlike X’s paid edit option, is entirely free for Threads users. Mark Zuckerberg confirmed in a Threads post that both the Edit and Voice Threads features are rolling out to all Threads users.
    • Edit Limit: Threads allows users to edit a post within a specific time frame. In this case, you can make changes to a Thread multiple times within five minutes. After the initial five minutes have passed, the Edit feature will no longer be available. This ensures a quick and efficient editing experience.
    • Restrictions: It’s worth noting that Threads’ Edit feature, while free, is more restrictive than the paid edit option on X. Threads doesn’t display an edit history for posts. Instead, there’s a single edit icon next to the post, indicating that the content has been modified.
  2. Voice Threads: Alongside the Edit feature, Threads is rolling out Voice Threads. This feature enables users to post recorded voice messages as Threads. If you’re familiar with voice notes on WhatsApp, Voice Threads functions in a similar manner. However, it’s essential to note that these voice messages are audible to all your Threads followers.

Creating a Threads Account

To access these exciting features, you’ll need an existing Instagram account. Threads and Instagram are intertwined, and you must have an Instagram account to create a Threads account. The connection between the two platforms allows for easy import of account details from Instagram to Threads. Users also have the flexibility to customize their Threads profile information if they wish.

If you already have a verified Instagram handle, your username on Threads will remain the same, along with the verified badge. However, you’ll have the option to edit your profile picture and bio, giving you the ability to tailor your Threads profile to your preferences.

Additionally, there are indications that Threads may soon allow users to delete their Threads account without needing to delete their associated Instagram account. This is a welcome development for users who appreciate the versatility of Threads while maintaining their Instagram presence.

The Evolution of Threads

Threads continues to evolve and introduce features that enhance the microblogging experience for users. With the Edit Button and Voice Threads, Threads users can enjoy more flexibility and creativity in their posts. The quick edit option ensures that corrections and updates are made seamlessly, promoting smoother interactions on the platform.

As Threads keeps innovating and expanding its feature set, it remains a noteworthy player in the field of microblogging platforms. By offering these new features for free, Threads makes a compelling case for users to engage and share their thoughts in a dynamic and interactive online environment.

Stay tuned for further updates as Threads continues to redefine the microblogging landscape.
