Threads implements one of the most requested features by users: the edit button. And, unlike X (Twitter), you won’t have to pay a subscription to use this option.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced this on his Threads profile. The edit button will be available starting this Thursday. During the first five minutes after publication, the message can be edited as much as you like. After this time, the option is blocked.

It took Twitter 16 years to add a button like this. But then the company installed a paywall as one of the benefits of a Twitter Blue (now called X Premium) subscription. Of course: it allows editing within the first 60 minutes after the post is published.

The new Threads editing feature is available on both mobile devices and the website. At the moment, the edit history is not displayed. Please note that the message has been edited.

Voice clips have been added to editing in Topics.

Zuckerberg also announced that Threads is adding the ability to post voice messages. I call it “Voice Threads” and allows you to attach an audio clip to a message. The functionality began to be gradually implemented this Thursday.

Threads never stops launching new features with the goal of keeping its users engaged and not wasting the momentum that its big launch gave it. In July, for example, it launched a chronological feed of posts from users it follows. And at the end of August it officially launched its web version.

Threads is currently the fastest growing platform, reaching its first 100 million users in just five days. Thus, it surpassed ChatGPT, which achieved this result in the first two months after launch.

However, the initial excitement subsided. Already in July, the new platform closed with an 82% drop in the active user base. New report from Insider intelligence said it expects Threads to have 23.7 million users in the United States. at the end of 2023. Significantly behind Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and even Twitter.

But Threads will primarily insist on competing with Twitter. Zuckerberg’s platform will also prepare a “Trending Topics” section. A Threads user spotted the update this week in a screenshot accidentally posted by a social media employee.
