Instagram working on new ‘Voice Note’ feature for Threads app

Instagram is working on a new feature called Voice Note for its standalone messaging app Threads.

Instagram is working on a new feature called Voice Note for its standalone messaging app Threads. This will show the speech in live captions on the Threads app.

The new the feature was first noticed and reported by the mobile developer and leaker Alessandro Paluzzi. He posted this news on his Twitter account with some screenshots.

This feature works very similarly to the YouTube live captions. You have seen the caption beneath a video at the time of playing. This feature can be very helpful for users with hearing disabilities. Normal users would be getting benefits as some voice is not easily understandable.

Facebook launched the Threads app last year. This app lets users share Stories, messages, photos, videos, and more with Instagram's close friend's list. Threads app is aimed at building a closer circle of friends and share more personal and meaningful experiences. Instagram might integrate this feature in their video platform IGTV (Instagram TV) to provide better user experience with live captions.

Instagram has not rolled out this feature to all users. It is in the testing phase and we may expect to see this feature soon.
