Download and install Threads from Instagram on your Laptop or Desktop computer

If you want to install and use the Threads from Instagram app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Threads from Instagram in the search bar and press Search. Click on Threads from Instagramapplication icon. A window of Threads from Instagram on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use Threads from Instagram for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Okay, but, why?

    by Tifynee123
    Threads is a lot like Facebook Messenger, but without the games. You can messsage people and send pictures. These functions are available in the regular Instagram app, though, so what’s the point of Threads? There are also no filters. So the camera can get really boring really quickly if, like me, you don’t have much to send. I like the idea of themes, but the options currently available are very limited, and there isn’t a “custom” option. I don’t get what the point of this app is, but it just launched. Maybe after a few updates the purpose of the app will become evident.
  • Descent App

    by Trev1217
    Threads from Instagram is an interesting little app, like Instagram Direct Messaging but only with close friends. It’s very obviously trying to compete with Snapchat but there are some subtle features like themes (dark mode!) that the app does have to differentiate itself from the rest. It seems to be very early in development, not too far off from Facebook messenger minus a few essential features, but overall it’s a decent app. Is it entirely required? No. Would I use it more often if I actually used Instagram to message people more? Maybe.
  • What’s the point of this app?

    by LittleRed727
    It honestly feels like Instagram/Facebook is running out of ideas. This app is literally Instagram DMs with 1 or 2 new features that no one really cares about. The app feels way too basic because it is extremely limited and inconvenient, especially since most of the features already exists in the Instagram app. Why should I switch apps just to talk to the same people about the same things on an identical platform? I feel like the concept for Threads wasn’t thought out very well. It just creates more inconvenience for the user in the end. Hopefully a lot more features and diverse functionality get added to the app to make it actually stand out from Instagram DMs.
  • ok, i’m listening

    by TinyKookie
    i was expecting to hate the app when i first heard it was being released. like: what’s the point of it, yknow? but now that ive downloaded it i’m actually Really liking it. theres a lot of room for improvement but it’s a good start and i think i’ll be sticking around!! (i also think this is really going to ease up my data usage, because its in a whole separate app) bugs/needed improvements: • if someone has linked an instagram post in their story and you click on it, it crashes the app • voice messages should be added, like they are in the insta app • you cant mute videos from in the app.. feel like this is kinda an essential for posting stories • statuses are pretty useless as of now.. unless all your close friends have threads too then theres literally no point to them.. they just seem a little silly as of now (‘: ITS A GOOD START Y’ALL,!!
  • Good Start

    by Da Evil 1
    I am a Snapchat and Instagram fan and this a good start to reducing my usage of Snapchat. The one item Instagram has been lacking is solid messaging. This app fixes the shortcomings of direct messaging in the main app. There are a few annoyances though: 1. There is no ability to respond via the notifications. You have to enter the app to respond but at least you can see the message from the notification unlike Snapchat. 2. No ability to set nicknames for people, instead you have to remember profiles names. 3. Only for“close friends” as chosen when you download the app. As you become friends with more people you will have to constantly update this list. 4. No ability to add to your Instagram story but you can view stories from this app. Makes no sense. This is a great start with a great design and can’t wait to see how it evolves.
  • Solid, but..

    by Lemon Hope 🍋
    Great UI and the idea of a “stripped down version” of messaging is awesome (can only message those who are in your close friend group). Would like to see the ability to quick reply through notification like you can with iMessage. Time stamps would also be great just like in Instagram (pull chat to one side to expose time stamp of sent texts). Other than that, solid work! Can’t praise the smooth UI enough!
  • Nice new app

    by neverqirl
    So far I like it. I know it’s like Messenger for Facebook but I have friends I message through Instagram and this is so much simpler and to the point. Only thin is I wish there was more to do with the camera, like filters, locations, tags, and things like. Just like the Instagram camera. Also, I wish it would just add all your followers rather than only using your close friends. That should be an option at least.
  • Why I use it..

    by JPimemtel
    I’ve recently deleted Instagram because I often caught myself opening it, scrolling past like 10 pictures, closing the app and reopening just to repeat. This app helps message my friends without having to go through Instagram and is super helpful with it. Some issues but they can fix it easily. Grateful for this app
  • Another wannabe Snapchat

    by kingmaestro7890
    Instagram, a company that would rather steal ideas from Snapchat time and time again to only keep failing at doing so and whenever they get tired of trying, they simply discontinue the app and it becomes unavailable to download on the App Store. Facebook stories, messenger stories, Instagram stories, threads stories it’s getting tiring, how about you innovate for once. I don’t see how you can even feel remotely accomplished and proud of your work if it’s all of Snapchat’s innovation. No offense but people tend to like originality more than they do rip offs.
  • This app is cute but-

    by Jose 🤡
    Okay this app is cute and I get that the concept is all about being closer with your close friends but I feel like it would be even better if it was just a messenger in general because then you could easily chat and share to your story then and there without having to switch between the two apps-
