- Meta introduces a beta program for Android users in the Threads platform.
- Threads lacks features and attracts 70M users in 2 days.
- Controversy: Twitter accuses Meta, denied by Meta.
Meta has introduced a beta program for Android users to test new features and bug fixes in Threads, their latest platform. While beta systems carry high risk due to instability of buildings, they allow for early access to interesting new information. In just two days of launch, Threads has reached 70 million users. But it currently lacks some notable features such as direct messaging, “follow” feeds, a full web version, and timeline feeds, which makes the beta system appealing to those eager for upcoming improvements.
Those interested in joining the beta program can register without a wait, as there is no waiting list. Any Android device user can participate and test the upcoming versions. Participants should note that some performance information will be collected and provided to the developer to improve the application. It is important to keep in mind that test versions may not be available.
Looking to try out new Threads features early? Well, you can if you're using Android.https://t.co/sdCoPADVA9— Android Headlines (@Androidheadline) July 7, 2023

Despite its recent launch, threads from Elon Musk-owned Twitter have already attracted attention. Twitter is threatening legal action against Meta, accusing them of kidnapping former Twitter employees to create a new platform. But Meta has denied the allegations.
f you’re an Android user keen to get in on the trends, you’ll soon have the chance to check out upcoming features in Meta Threads, a Twitter competitor that’s already gaining massive traction. The meta-engineer’s announcement revealed that a beta version of the app is available for Android users. The app has registered more than 30 million users in a short time. It is unclear if there will be an iOS beta program.
While beta software often comes with bugs, it can be a distracting prospect for users because Threads still has many requested features, such as hashtags, direct messaging, a full web version, a timeline feed, a “follow” feed, and the ability to delete your profile without impacting your Instagram account.
However, it is important to proceed with caution, as unstable structures are to be expected. As @0xjessel from Meta advises, the first beta version will bring new features and bug fixes, but adds that users are prepared for a higher risk of encountering instability due to initial development, Meta will collect and use some useful information to improve the performance of the app.
