Threads app update: New features

According to a 9to5Mac report, the Threads app has received a set of new features to simplify the app usage. The new feature aligns with Instagram's existing features. In its recent update, Meta has included a new button that provides users with quick access to the camera. Earlier, users could only export images from a library or gallery. Now with quick access to the camera, they do not have to switch between threads and camera apps on their devices. The source quoted Meta saying, “opens your phone’s camera directly in the Threads composer, making it easier to share photos on Threads.”
