Looking to try Threads in France without having to create a new US Apple account? Here is an easy solution to achieve this.
Since its launch, Thread by Meta has generated a lot of interest and questions, especially in Europe where the application remains unavailable to date. Several questions arise: why such a geographical restriction? How, despite everything, manage to download the application? Luckily, we’ve found solutions that might help.
Despite this restriction, it is quite possible to download Thread on your smartphone, whether it is an iPhone or an Android. On Android, the procedure is relatively simple. Just download the Thread app APK file from a reliable site and then install it on your device. To do this, you will need to allow the installation of apps from unknown sources in your device’s security settings.
On iPhone, the procedure is a little more complex, but quite feasible. You need to create a US Apple account. This involves changing the region of your current account or creating a new one specifically for app downloads not available in Europe.
A simpler solution for iPhone: TestFlight
However, we have found an even easier solution for iPhone users: the public test program TestFlight.
TestFlight is an application offered by Apple that allows developers to test their applications before their official launch. It just so happens that Thread is currently available in beta on TestFlight.
To download Thread via TestFlight, you just need to download the TestFlight app from the App Store, then follow this link to access the beta version of Thread. Take the opportunity to follow CssTricks of course @frandroid_off on Threads.
How long will this method last?
It is important to note that Thread access through TestFlight may be temporary. Indeed, once the developers have completed their tests, they may decide to remove the application from the program. The number of participants may also be limited..
However, as of this writing, Thread is still available on TestFlight. It is therefore advisable to act quickly if you want to try the application.
