Meta To Launch Threads Web Version This Week

- Here’s everything you need to know
Meta is reportedly eyeing this week to launch the Web version of its Twitter competitor.
When Threads launched two months ago, it was a barebones version, with several basic features lacking. Meta has been quick to add features back to back. One of the significant features lacking was the inability to use the platform on the Web, as it didn’t come with a Web version. Now, a new report suggests that Meta will launch the Web version of Threads by this week.
This report comes from The Wall Street Journal, but it also adds that “launch plans aren’t final and could change.”
Adam Mosseri, Meta’s Instagram Head, replied to a post on Threads earlier last week that the company has been using an internal version of Threads Web. Which suggests the official launch isn’t much farther away.
He said in that post that the Web version still needs work, and the report from WSJ suggests that Meta might be finally ready to launch the Web version of the app.
Threads still lack lots of basic features for an X alternative. Adding the Web version isn’t going to rapidly change the fate of Threads, which quickly jumped to 100 million users and losing reportedly over 85% of the users. These are steps in the right direction, as Meta also added features such as a follow feed, the ability to add custom Alt text for media, see all Threads you liked previously, and more.
