Meta's Threads to Get Edit Button and Improved Search Features

Meta's Threads app is set to undergo significant improvements, including the addition of an edit button and enhanced search features, as confirmed by Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri.

In an 'Ask Me Anything' session on Threads, Mosseri revealed that Meta is actively working on several enhancements. These include refining the search function, improving content ranking, and enhancing the integration with Instagram. Notably, the highly anticipated edit button is in the pipeline, with promising designs already in place. Mosseri encouraged users to stay tuned for updates on this feature.

One notable development is the testing of English-language search features in Australia and New Zealand. If successful, this functionality will gradually expand to other English-speaking regions, including the United States. However, it's worth noting that Threads has not yet been launched in the European Union, so European users may have to wait a bit longer for these improvements.

Another exciting prospect mentioned by Mosseri is the ability to make Threads posts searchable, a feature that could greatly enhance user experience and content discoverability.

Threads, which saw a rapid surge in popularity with 100 million sign-ups upon its July release, has faced criticism due to missing features such as Direct Messages (DMs) and a lack of keyword search capability. However, Meta has recently launched a desktop version of Threads, and Mosseri has reassured users that other requested features are on the horizon.

It's worth noting that while another social media platform, X (formerly known as Twitter), also offers an edit option, it is primarily available through paid features. Twitter's past restriction on editing published tweets, however, contributed to its value as a reliable source of information for journalists and legal authorities.
