Threads is introducing a free edit button

Meta’s Threads, in its bid to compete with Twitter, is fulfilling one of its most sought-after requests – the addition of an edit button.

As announced by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Threads will commence the rollout of an edit button today for all its users. This option enables users to make edits to a post within a short window after it’s been posted. During the initial five minutes, you can edit the post as much as needed, but after that period, editing is restricted.

This feature is accessible on both mobile apps and the web and is already available to some users.

It’s worth noting that while this functionality is free, it comes with a more stringent time limit compared to Twitter’s version. Threads does not display a history of edited posts, making it less evident which posts have been altered. Instead, there is merely an indicator to show whether or not a post has been edited.

Additionally, a new feature called “Voice Threads” is rolling out today, allowing users to attach an audio clip to a post. Although demonstrated by Tom Warren, it appears that this feature may not be widely available, especially on Android.
