Meta's new microblogging app, Threads is reportedly working on a new feature like X called 'Trending Topic'. This upcoming feature of Threads can give tough competition to X (Formerly Twitter).
According to reports, a user on Threads shared a screenshot of the Threads app's new upcoming 'Trends' feature, claiming that it was accidentally shown on a post by a Threads employee.
The leaked screenshot of Threads' "Trending Topic" feature showcased the top trending topics, including Drake's new album, "For All the Dogs," which took the top spot.
Threads' "Trends" feature is expected to be accessible via the revamped Search tab. This will enable users to search for specific keywords.
It is unclear whether Threads will expand the 'Trends' feature to include categories section such as news, sports, and entertainment, as X does.
Since the Threads app is suffering from declining user engagement, the company is focusing on the "Trending Topic" feature, which is what attracts users to X.
