It is tech peak season and Facebook is not playing. News from The Verge has it that Facebook is making a stand-alone companion app for Instagram call Thread. Thread will be a messaging app that will work with Instagram the way Messenger works with Facebook to allow the gram users to send messages to their close friends. Besides messages, Thread will be able to automatically share things like speed, location and battery life with close friends.
Thread is Facebook’s latest invention to take more eyeballs off SnapChat and keep them on Instagram. All we can do now is wait till the internal tests of Thread are done and hope for an announcement of a release date for the app.
