The Threads app is about to become significantly more useful with Meta’s latest update, which introduces a new option to view posts from the people you follow in chronological order. This feature has been long-awaited and is seen as a crucial addition for Threads to compete with Twitter, a platform known for real-time information.

As Twitter, under Elon Musk’s ownership, faces challenges and declines, Meta emerges as a more appealing destination for up-to-the-minute news and updates.

To access the chronological feed, you’ll need to ensure you have the latest version of Threads installed. Although the update is being rolled out, it may not be immediately available to all users.

Switching between the “For You” and “Following” feeds is simple; just tap the Threads logo or the home icon and swipe to switch between the two.

Threads Gain Crucial Edge Over Twitter with Real-Time Chronological Option and Exciting New Features

Mark Zuckerberg made the exciting announcement about the chronological feed during a broadcast on his Instagram channel. Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, had previously hinted that such an option was in the works.

Additionally, Meta CEO mentioned that Meta now boasts another significant feature – translations. If you encounter a post in a language you don’t understand, you can easily translate it by tapping the bottom right corner.

In addition to these updates, Meta has included a few other features to enhance the App experience. The Activity tab now allows you to filter notifications by follows, replies, mentions, quoted posts, reposts, and interactions from verified accounts.

Alternatively, you can choose to view all your notifications together. The App team has also introduced a new follow button to streamline the process of following people back, as well as an option to approve all follow requests at once for private accounts.

Mark Zuckerberg assured users that more updates are on the horizon, with plans possibly including the ability to post to Threads directly from the web, improved accessibility, better search functionality, and a TweetDeck-like interface to manage Threads posts efficiently.

By prioritizing user requests and needs, Threads aims to create a compelling platform that will keep users engaged and coming back for more.
