Facebook is working on Threads, a new messaging app aimed at promoting intimate sharing between users, the Verge reported on Tuesday citing sources familiar with the matter.

The company is currently testing the app internally, the sources said. The standalone app is designed to accompany the world's most popular photo-sharing platform, Instagram, and update users on their closest friends' location or battery life through texting, photo and video-sharing.

In early 2019, it was reported that Facebook Inc.'s chief executive Mark Zuckerberg ordered the integration of messaging services and implementation of end-to-end encryption, enabling users to message each other across platforms.
