Instagram Threads is a separate app created by Instagram that offers a unique way to connect with your close friends on a more personal level. It combines Instagram Stories and Snapchat elements, emphasizing ephemeral content and real-time communication.

Threads is designed to foster more intimate and personal connections with your close friends. Your Threads profile is only visible to those you’ve added as close friends, and messages and threads disappear after 24 hours. This makes it an ideal platform for sharing content you prefer to keep private or for staying up-to-date with your friends’ lives without sifting through your main Instagram feed.

Threads is currently accessible in over 100 countries worldwide, and you can download it from either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
