An engineer working for Meta revealed on Friday that the Meta Launches a threads beta program for Android users. The beta program will provide users with early access to new features and bug fixes; but, like with any other beta program, there is an additional risk when downloading an unstable build. Users will have early access to new features and bug fixes.
Threads went up on Wednesday and now has 70 million users just two days after its debut. There are a few major features that are absent from the platform, including direct messages, a “Following” feed, a full web version, a chronological feed, and more.
Users who are interested in getting their hands on new features and take advantage of the platform could be enticed to participate in the new beta program because the platform now has a structure that is rather basic.
In the invitation to participate in the beta program, it is stated that “certain data on your use of the app will be collected and shared with the developer in order to help improve the app.” The invitation also includes a cautionary note that “testing versions may be unstable.”
Because there is currently no queue for beta access, anyone who has an Android device can enter the program and test out future builds immediately after signing up for it. You can sign up for beta access right now by clicking here.

Meta Launches threads Beta which gives Instagram users the ability to make brief updates, which can include text of up to 500 characters, links, photographs, and videos of up to five minutes in length. Users can identify themselves by using their existing Instagram credentials. At the time of launch, Threads was made available on iOS and Android in one hundred countries. However, it was not made available in the European Union (EU), purportedly owing to worries about abiding to local data privacy legislation.
Even though Threads has only been accessible for two days, it has already drawn the attention of Twitter, which is owned by Elon Musk. The social media giant is threatening legal action against Threads and accused Meta of luring former Twitter employees to establish the new platform. Meta has responded by denying the charges.
