However that might change quickly, as Instagram’s head, Adam Mosseri has revealed new particulars about the identical.
Mosseri took to Threads to answer to The Platformer Information’ Casey Newton. Mosseri, replying to Newton’s submit, mentioned that Meta may combine Instagram’s inbox into the Threads app. This, after all, would allow direct messaging on it.

In the meantime, Mosseri additionally offered a listing of points going in opposition to the implementation. “If, ultimately, we are able to’t make the Instagram inbox work for Threads, we’ll have a tough option to make between (1) mirroring the Instagram inbox in Threads and coping with notification routing weirdness, and (2) constructing a completely separate Threads inbox and coping with the truth that you’ll have two redundant message threads with every of your pals with the identical handles in two completely different apps. Neither appears nice,” Mosseri defined.
