Meta's new Threads web interface won't lead you to the mobile app

Meta's Threads is about to have a more functional web application.

Currently, web client Threads are not working properly. Clicking the like, comment, and repost buttons will show a QR code, prompting you to download the mobile app. That was changed this week. The new version of Threads on the web will let you post, view your feed, and interact with other users, all from your computer. Christine Pai, a spokesperson for Meta, told Lifewire in an email: “The Threads team is working hard to bring this experience to mobile parity and will add more functionality to the experience. web in the coming weeks”.

In a post on his personal Threads account, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced a new web version for the company's rival X (formerly Twitter) will be available to users in the coming days. . "Actual footage of me building Threads for the web will be available in the next few days," Zuckerberg said in the post and accompanying photo, alluding to the director's early days at Facebook.

Threads has had one of the most successful launches in recent times. The app had 10 million users in the first 7 hours of launch and then surpassed 100 million users in less than a week. Since then, interest in Threads seems to have waned, with one estimate putting the social network's user base at 125 million (as of August 19). Application data analytics companies Similarweb and Sensor Tower also claim that Threads has seen a significant drop in user engagement since launch.
