Threads is a messenger that goes beyond the simplicity of “staying in touch” – it’s designed to help you get intentional about your relationships and stay involved in the lives of the people you really care about.
Thread Starters are prompts and mini connection games dropped right into your chats with the option to answer with a video, gif, or text.
Threads provides the convenience of sharing real-life updates directly into your private conversations, delivered separately, to multiple people at once.
Share with People Not On the App
Share updates about your life with people who don’t have the Threads app. Threads sends an sms text message from our shortcode (5-digit number) with a private web link to anyone, anytime.
Only the People You Know & Trust
Only see messages from the people you’ve chosen to connect with.
We will never share or sell your data to data brokers.
We do not access your contacts to suggest people for you to connect with, your name and photo are only visible to those you choose to connect with.
And… Threads is a free app!
