Meta is adding a polling feature and the ability to insert GIFs to Threads. In addition, the company tests pinned posts and impressions of the number of views.

All of these capabilities are already in place on platform X, which is called Threads’ main competitor. The media do not stop associating the emergence of new features with the competition of two similar social networks.

A survey in Threads has three or four answer options and a timer. If you vote, Threads will send you a notification when the poll is complete.

To make it easier to share GIFs, you’ll be able to select the appropriate icon to search. It will also show the most popular files.

Threads also adds pinned profile posts and pinned comments. This feature is currently available to a small number of users.

As a reminder, Threads has voice messages and an editing function. You will be able to edit the post within the first five minutes.
