Could Meta's Threads get a direct messaging feature?

Could Meta's Threads get a direct messaging feature?

Meta's Threads might be working on building a direct messaging feature.

That's according to reverse engineer and top leaker Alessandro Paluzzi, who has claimed to have found some screenshots of a prototype for the feature seemingly for the X rival.

One reads: "Thanks for trying this employee-only messaging prototype. Please keep in mind that none of the messages are encrypted or stored securely."

Whether this will see the light of day remains to be seen.

Instagram boss Adam Mosseri was previously asked for the DM feature on Threads, and he was clear that he didn't want users to have "yet another inbox".

He responded: "For now our plan is to not build yet another inbox, and instead let people send threads to other apps, including Instagram DMs but also apps we don’t own. It might not make sense long-term, but we thought we’d start simple."
