Instagram Threads App Gets New Voice Notes Features & Editing Option

Instagram CEO announced two features that are coming to the threads platform and one of them is worthy of your attention. The first is the editing option, which allows you to edit your Thread, which is kind of a standard feature now with multiple social media platforms. The second feature is what I wanted to bring to your notice where you can add a voice notes on Threads. Click on a microphone icon that is there in the compose window and start recording your voice. Now, the interesting thing is your voice will be automatically transcribed into a text post as well. And when somebody plays that audio, it will run highlighting the text which is being spoken in the audio. People get to hear your voice and they also get to read what you’re saying. Not just for the main post, but for all the threads that follow. I think this would be a useful type of content for many leaders who have less time to type or to create a video.
