Meta’s messaging app Threads has introduced two exciting new features: GIFs and polls. CEO Mark Zuckerberg made this announcement on October 26, 2023, and users on iOS, Android, and the web have already started experiencing these updates.
The GIF feature opens up a world of creativity, enabling users to effortlessly search and incorporate GIFs from GIPHY into their Threads posts. This not only adds a delightful touch to posts but also offers a fun way to inject humor or react to others’ comments.
On the other hand, the poll feature empowers users to craft interactive polls with up to four options, encouraging their followers to participate and voice their opinions. It’s an excellent tool for soliciting feedback from friends and family or for gauging public sentiment on various topics. These polls remain open for 24 hours, with real-time result tracking available to users.
These new additions represent Meta’s commitment to enhancing the engagement and interactivity of Threads. The company has additional features in the pipeline, such as the ability to send audio messages and create groups.
Threads users have enthusiastically embraced these updates. Social media platforms are abuzz with users expressing their excitement about incorporating GIFs and polls into their Threads posts.
