Threads web version might launch sooner than expected
Meta's X competitor, Threads, made an impressive launch on mobile devices, and it is now time to expand the span. The Threads web version was already in the works, and according to recent reports, Meta might launch it sooner than expected.
In order to get back to its initial success, the team has been working on the Threads web version for a while now, and according to The Wall Street Journal, it will be out earlier this week. But according to WSJ's sources, the feature's "launch plans aren't final and could change." Mosseri wrote on Threads the previous week that Meta has been testing "an early version internally for a week or two," but that it still "needs some work" before being made widely available.

Threads debuted as a very basic Twitter clone only a month and a half ago. It immediately surpassed the 100 million user mark and populated with businesses and celebrities, but it lacked a number of essential features, which the firm has been gradually developing.

The fact that the business just included a follow feed and the option to confirm a link with your Mastodon profile suggests that Meta is at least somewhat serious about integrating with the decentralized social network protocol Activity Pub.Advertisement
