Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg Announces Threads’ Upcoming Feature: Post Editing and Voice Note Sharing for Users


Threads to Introduce Post Editing and Voice Note Sharing for Users in Upcoming Release

Before its July launch, Meta’s text-based social media platform, Threads, generated significant buzz. Users eagerly anticipated Meta’s new platform, particularly as Twitter (now named X) had recently begun charging for previously free features. Threads was positioned as a potential alternative to Twitter. The app garnered millions of downloads within five days of its release, providing a seamless transition for Instagram users. Speculation arose that Threads might replace X entirely. However, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri clarified that Threads aimed to offer a “less hostile” platform rather than replacing Twitter.

Despite the initial hype, Threads no longer enjoys the same level of popularity as its launch. Meta is actively addressing this by introducing new features for its micro-blogging platform. One upcoming feature, akin to Elon Musk’s X, promises to be highly beneficial.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently announced that Threads will soon incorporate a long-awaited edit button. This enhancement allows users to edit their posts after publication, a feature conspicuously absent from the platform until now. It’s worth noting that even on Twitter, the Edit button only became available after Elon Musk’s acquisition in October last year. Threads’ edit button comes with a five-minute time limit, meaning users can make post changes within this window. Afterward, post editing becomes disabled. Additionally, Threads is introducing Voice Notes, enabling users to share voice recordings by simply tapping the new microphone icon. Some users already have access to these features, with broader availability expected soon.

A reported feature called Trending Topics suggests that Threads may allow users to monitor current discussions through numerical rankings below a search bar. The feature also displays the number of posts related to each topic. This feature mirrors the trend notifications available on X. Mark Zuckerberg previously hinted at this feature in a post: “Get excited — search is coming to Threads. Rolling out to most English and Spanish-speaking countries today. More to come soon.
