Meta is trying to add much-requested features to Threads as quickly as possible. After launching keyword search earlier this month, the latest update to the Threads app now finally allows users to switch between different accounts without having to log out and log back in.
Switching between different accounts in the Threads app
The new feature was announced by the official Threads profile on the social network and is now available to users of the latest version of the application. Similar to what users can already do in the Instagram app, Threads users can now press and hold the profile button in the tab bar to open a new menu for switching between accounts.
When you do this for the first time, you will see the “Add Profile” button. the ability to log in under a different account. The Threads app will then save your other account credentials so you can easily choose which one to use.
This is great for people who have separate accounts for personal and work content, for example, or for professionals who manage multiple work accounts. However, it is unclear whether there is a limit to the number of accounts you can add to easily switch between them.

Last month, Meta launched a web version of Threads, allowing users to access the social network through a computer for the first time. The web version also works great on iPad, as the iOS app is optimized for iPhone only. The app also introduced a chronological feed that only shows the content of the accounts you follow, without suggesting posts.
Threads attracted more than 100 million users in the first five days of its launch. However, due to the lack of some important features, some of these users left the platform. By introducing much-requested features, Meta is certainly looking to bring more people back to Threads.
You can download Threads for free on the App Store. The app requires an iPhone running iOS 14 or later. Additionally, you can access the online social network through threads.net.
