Meta is beginning to roll out an edit characteristic and “Voice Threads” for its Threads platform, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Thursday. They’re two main new options for Meta’s burgeoning X-like social community — and in contrast to on X, you received’t must pay a subscription charge to have the ability to edit your posts for 5 minutes after they’re printed.
Posts which can be edited may have just a little icon subsequent to the timestamp exhibiting that they’ve been revised. (That’s, as soon as the characteristic has rolled out to you — I’m nonetheless not seeing it on iOS or on the internet. My colleagues that do have the edit characteristic are seeing the icon.) Nevertheless, you received’t be capable of see an edit historical past — that’s one benefit X nonetheless has over Threads.
I used to be capable of make a voice post. When drafting a brand new put up on the iOS app, I tapped a brand new microphone button to entry the recording interface, after which I may press a pink document button to document my voice. Within the put up itself, you’ll be able to hearken to what I stated (“This can be a voice put up on Threads”), and as my voice performs, the textual content of what I say is highlighted within the put up as I say it. Fairly cool!
