Last week Threads introduced one of the most anticipated features – the web version of the platform. And now meta✴ started testing another popular feature – search for releases. While searching in threads is only possible by username, the introduction of a full-fledged search is not far off. The feature is currently being tested in Australia and New Zealand and is expected to be rolled out widely in other English-speaking countries as well.
“We’re actively listening to community feedback and working on additional features to improve search.”, the company said in a statement. In a Threads post, Mark Zuckerberg wrote: “Rejoice – threads are searched.”
Meta✴ tries to increase user engagement in threads, which has been declining since the first publicity. Over the past few weeks, the company has been gradually rolling out the most requested features, such as: B. Follows tab, Likes view, Shared tab, Web version, and now it’s time for full-text search too.
In the early version of the search, users are unlikely to receive the full range of functions including extended search functions and all kinds of filters in the near future. In particular, the distributed social network Mastodon, which competes with X and Threads for audiences, has already started rolling out a new version of the pop-up panel for finding media news, complete with easily accessible filters for news by a specific date range.
