12 ➕ Best Tricks and Hacks for Threads from Instagram App


We all want an app to keep in touch with our close friends only and keep away from others. Instagram heard the prayer without even asking for it. Recently, they launched a dedicated app for close friends list known as Threads. Here, you will get to know its tips and tricks.


Instagram Threads Tip Tricks Fi

The Threads app from Instagram is a messaging app for your close friends. But unlike usual chat apps, here you can choose the people from Instagram that should appear in the app. These people should be added to the close friends list on Instagram. The idea of the app is to make conversations with your BFFs faster.

Everything related to a conversation is available directly in this app. You don’t have to juggle through various taps to begin a chat. We have already covered in detail how to use the app. In this post, we will help you to make your conversations quicker with these tips and tricks for the Threads by Instagram app.

Note: The tips work on both Android and iOS versions of the Threads app.

1. Switch Between Camera and Home Screen Quickly

There are two important screens in the Threads app — camera and home screen. To switch between them, Instagram has provided dedicated buttons. But when you are on any one of those screens, you can switch to the other quickly by simply swiping down. The gesture is similar to the one that you use for reloading in Chrome or Snapchat, i.e., pull down from top to bottom.

2. Use Shortcuts to Send Photos and Videos

The shortcuts available next to the capture button on the camera screen aren’t just for decoration purposes. Tap on them to capture a photo and send it directly to that person. Hold the profile picture of the person to begin shooting a video.

3. Discard Message with Gesture

If you don’t like the captured photo or video, swipe down on the screen to discard the captured media. You will see the remove icon when you pull down the screen. Release the screen to discard it.

4. Send Message with Gesture

After capturing a photo or video, swipe up on the captured file to send it to the other person. You can also use the send button.

5. Download Photo

Once you have made the required changes to your photo or video, you can save it on your device before sending it to the other person. For that, tap on the Download icon on the send screen.

6. Flip Camera While Recording Video

To record a video, you have to hold the camera button. To flip the camera while recording, you need to use both hands. You can keep recording the video with one hand, and use the other to flip the camera by double-tapping on the screen.

7. Remove People from App from Home Screen

Instead of opening the app settings or the Instagram app to remove people from your close friends list, you can do it directly from the home screen of this app. For that, swipe right on the chat thread of the person that you want to remove. A pop-up will appear asking you to confirm. Tap on Remove.

8. Open Camera for Close Friend

If you are on the home screen of the app, swipe left on the chat thread of the person to open the camera directly for them. You don’t have to open the camera screen first and then tap on the shortcut. This further reduces the time needed to send something to your close friends.

9. Change Viewing Time

Similar to Instagram Direct, you can change the message viewing time in this app too. You can choose between View once, Replay, and Keep in chat. Select the option after you have captured the photo.

14. Change App Theme

Everyone keeps asking for dark mode. Instagram has provided it in this app, along with other themes from the first version itself. You can choose between 5 themes in this app. Interestingly, when you change the theme on iPhone, it also changes the app icon.

To change the app theme, go to the app settings, and tap on Themes. Then, select your preferred theme.

15. Delete Chat Thread

You cannot directly delete a chat from the Threads app. You can remove the person from your close friends list to hide their chat from the Threads app. Alternatively, you can delete the thread on the main Instagram app. That will remove it from the Threads app as well.

Keep Close Friends Closer

We hope the above tips and tricks improve your experience on the Threads app. This is a new app that's different from the traditional chat apps. It would be interesting to see how Instagram updates this app in the future. Now that Instagram is giving special preference to messages, we hope they let us send text from desktop soon. Meanwhile, there are smart hacks to use Instagram messages on the web.
