Threads, the X (formerly Twitter) competitor created by Meta, is working on a way to search through posts using keywords, CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced.
In fact, the company is already testing the function in Australia and New Zealand. It plans to roll out keyword search more broadly to English-speaking territories in short order. "We are actively listening to the community's feedback and working on more features to improve the search experience," Meta told TechCrunch.
Currently, you can only search for other user accounts on Threads. As a result, the search feature is limited to only helping you follow new people, rather than surfacing topics you're interested in.
Meanwhile, accessing Threads on the World Wide Web recently became a thing for the rest of the planet – err, except for the EU where Threads is still unavailable. Threads has been mostly available through browsers since last week.
Prior to desktop access, shipping a chronological timeline was the highest priority for satisfying users. As for keyword search, users are receiving alerts to try it out when the feature goes live.
Rolling out the search feature could help Threads attract more users. The app initially saw massive growth when it first launched on July 5th, but visits to the Twitter rival has since plummeted by possibly as much as 79%, according to internet traffic provider Similarweb.
