In just five months, a small team of engineers at Meta transformed Threads, the new text-based conversations app, from an idea to the most successful app launch of all time. The app pulled in over 100M users in its first five days. This incredible achievement was made possible by Meta’s existing systems and infrastructure.

The latest episode of the Meta Tech Podcast features Meta engineer Pascal Hartig (@passy), joined by backend engineer Joy Qiu, iOS engineer Cameron Roth, and Android engineer Richard Zadorozny, all from the Threads team. They share the inside story behind Threads and discuss the challenges they faced along the way.
