Meta Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced new updates on Threads including a ‘Following’ feed and ‘Translations’.
“Since the launch of Threads, the Instagram team has been continuing to listen to community feedback and is working as quickly as possible to deliver new features to improve people’s experience,” the company said in a statement.
“Your feed on Threads allows you to view posts from other profiles, now with two options.”
‘For you’ is a view of the Threads feed that includes a mix of posts from profiles that users have chosen to follow and recommended accounts.
On the other hand, ‘Following’ will only show posts from people users follow in chronological order.
With the Translations feature, Threads posts in the feed are translated automatically based on the language they’re written in and the language settings of the person viewing it.
If users see a thread in a different language, and their language is available as a translation, they can tap the translation button at the bottom right of the post or reply to see it.
“Additional features in this update include: New categories to sort your Activity feed so you can filter by Follows, Quotes and Reposts, a Follow button on your followers list to easily follow other accounts back, the ability to see posts you’ve liked in your settings and the option for private accounts to batch ‘approve all’ follow requests,” the company said.
In response to a user asking about the web version of Threads, Instagram head Adam Mosseri on Wednesday said: “The team is working on it already.”
Replying to another query about improvements to the search function, Mosseri said: “The team is working on it, but it’ll probably be further out than a few weeks unfortunately…”
