The standalone messaging app will close threads by the end of the year



Instagram is shutting down its standalone messaging app threads by the end of this year. According to TechCrunch, Instagram is planning to notify its current threads users with an in-app notice starting November 23rd. Which will prompt them to return to Instagram to send messages to their friends to move on.



This app was created in 2019


Threads was introduced as a companion app on Instagram in 2019, shortly after the company discontinued its other standalone messaging app, Direct. Instead of just focusing on the inbox experience, Threads was created as a 'camera-first' mobile messenger. It was designed to post status updates and keep in touch with the people you designate as your 'close friends' on Instagram. The report says that although the app offers a way to update your status or automatically update it based on your location, navigate between different sections of the app until 2020 redesign. It was hard to do.



The app is closing at a time when Meta is upgrading its messaging platform.


With the update, Instagram tried to make it easier to switch between friends' stories, the camera interface and other parts of the experience. It still does not serve as a quick way to read your messages and does not receive significant traction as a result of changes. The app was ranked 214th in the photo and video category on the US App Store, indicating its continued failure to capture a wider audience. The shutdown comes at a time when Meta (formerly Facebook) is improving its messaging platform.
