Patcay.com – The decentralized social network, Bluesky, is enhancing its user experience by incorporating a novel in-app video and music player compatible with links from YouTube, SoundCloud, Spotify, and Twitch embeds. In contrast to X (Twitter), Bluesky’s player refrains from autoplaying content; users must initiate playback with a simple tap.
The new “hide post” feature provides users with the ability to click on posts they prefer not to encounter again. Consequently, the post is expunged from their feeds and discreetly concealed if accessed directly, described by Bluesky as being “put behind a mask.”
Beyond these enhancements, Bluesky addresses issues such as a bug causing muted and blocked account listings to appear empty. The social network also resolves an anomaly leading to an empty home screen and rectifies a crash bug that occasionally manifests during interactions with threads.

This announcement follows Bluesky’s recent decision to allow users to peruse posts on its platform without requiring a login. Although an invitation is still necessary for account creation and posting, users can now access posts through links, enabling publishers to share Bluesky content on blogs. Moreover, users gain the ability to share Bluesky posts in individual or group chats.
Having launched its iOS and Android apps in February, Bluesky has amassed 2 million users as of last month. While Bluesky currently stands as the sole instance on the AT Protocol, it aspires to achieve federation “early next year,” positioning itself as a more open social network akin to Mastodon.
This evolution will empower users to select servers of their choice, enabling the seamless movement of accounts across different platforms.
