Threads Fixes Notification Issue
Threads, the messaging app, has recently addressed a major problem that was frustrating its users: the notification issue. Previously, when users received a notification about a reply to a post, clicking on it would simply take them back to the same place as the initial notification, requiring them to restart the app to resolve the issue.
The good news is that Threads has now fixed this problem, as reported by a new source. Although the exact timing of the fix remains unclear, it is likely to have come with the app’s recent update on Friday. This bug fix is a welcome improvement, as users rely on notifications to keep up with posts from the people they follow.
Threads Gains Popularity as X Struggles
Meanwhile, Threads seems to be gaining momentum just as X (formerly Twitter) struggles to retain its user base. With X transitioning to a paid platform, users are in search of alternative options. Among these options, Threads and Bluesky are the most popular choices. While both apps may have simpler features compared to X, Threads has recently introduced a long-awaited capability for its free users: the ability to edit their posts.
This feature has been highly desired by free X users ever since Elon Musk promised it over a year ago. After making a post, Threads users now have a five-minute window to make changes before the post becomes permanent. Although not as long as the hour-long editing window promised by Musk, this new feature is still a valuable addition for Threads users.
