Instagram launches Threads app for Close Friends list

Instagram users will have a dedicated app to interact with their close friends.

Facebook-owned Instagram is branching out with a separate app that's dedicated for chats with Close Friends.

The app is called Threads from Instagram, or simply Threads, and it offers a new way for Instagram users to view their messages sent by friends in their Close Friends list.

Just like the main Instagram app, users can post and view daily Stories on the Threads app as it has its own camera feature.

The home page of the app is your Instagram's Direct Message section, showing all of the messages from your Close Friends.

In a blog post, Instagram said Threads is designed with privacy, speed, and close connections in mind.

With the Threads app, users can share photos, videos, messages, Stories to their close circle.

The launch comes almost a year after Instagram rolled out the option for users to make a close friends list on Stories.

The Threads app also shows your current status. You can choose from a range of status with emojis.

Instagram noted that Threads does not entirely phase out the Direct messaging section of the main Instagram app, which happened when Facebook launches Messenger years ago.

The Threads app is now available for download on the App Store and on Google Play.
