How to download Threads if it’s not available in your country on your Android phone

Greetings friends! Twitter’s competition is already here. Recently, Meta launched Threads, A new platform that offers similar features to Elon Musk’s social network. With features such as tweet-like short text messages. With the ability to create threads and other features typical of the microblogging platform. Best of all, you don’t need to create an account because it is directly linked to your Instagram account. Unfortunately, Meta was unable to launch Threads in countries like Spain. And that includes most European countries due to issues with EU data protection regulations. And although Meta is already trying to comply with the current European legislation. Right now you won’t be able to download the app from Play Store or App Store if you are located in some of these countries. So, in this post, we will show you how to download Threads if it is not available in your country on your Android phone.

Threads are not available on Google Play: how to download the app in any European country

Even if it is not on the Play Store or App Store. Threads can already be used in countries such as Spain and France without problems. When you install it on your phone, the app will automatically be available in the corresponding language and you will be able to use all the functions. But how do you install it?

It is likely that in the next few days Threads will be available for download from the Play Store and App Store

If you have an iPhone, (which does not allow installation of apps outside the App Store). You will have to wait for Meta to adapt to European regulations to be able to download Threads from the app store. Don’t worry, this is likely to happen very soon. Since its launch, the terms and conditions of use of Meta’s new app have already been updated. This is a clear sign that Meta is already working on bringing Threads to Europe.


Threads is an app from Meta that allows you to send messages and photos to your closest contacts. However, this application is not available in all countries. Which may be inconvenient for some Android users. Another way to download Threads if it is not available in your country is to use a VPN (virtual private network). That changes your location and allows you to access the app store in another country where it is available. The other way would be the one we already saw in this post, which is to search for the Threads APK file on trusted websites and download it directly to your phone. These options can help you enjoy Threads and its features, as long as you respect the rules of use and security of the application and your device. Thanks for reading. Bye!
