For now they are not considering making money from the practice, officials said, which could change in the future. Threads, like SnapChat, will provide direct camera access when the app opens. The filter will be an easy-to-use application, the company said, noting that features such as labels can be made with a few touches to the screen. You will also be able to assign photos to multiple people at the same time by identifying the people you want on the photo shutter. The company continues to intensify its competitive environment to gain more users, stating that those who start using the app will not be forced to use it because it has a SnapChat-like interface.

The app will also allow you to add short descriptions to the location share. The company that uses this feature by tracking your GPS location, similar to the Google Maps app, will not fully share your location. Explaining that older people use the SnapChat app, PEW noted that 73% of people aged 18-24 in America use SnapChat. With the new application, the company plans to increase the number of users and usage rate is curious about the future moves.
