Elon Musk, tech billionaire, has announced that a new audio and video call feature will be incorporated into X (previously referred to as Twitter) soon.
Through a post he shared on the platform on Thursday, Musk provided details indicating that this feature will be accessible on Android, iOS, PC, and Mac devices.
Musk further mentioned that once this feature is launched, users will be able to conduct audio and video calls without the necessity of a phone number.
“Video and audio calls are coming to X; it works on iOS, Android, Mac, and PC; no phone number needed; X is the effective global address book. That set of factors is unique,” Musk, who is the owner and chief executive officer of X, said.
Musk, however, did not provide a specific date for the launch of the new feature.
Last two weeks, Musk said X users would no longer be able to block other accounts because the feature made “no sense”.
Since Musk took over the microblogging platform, Twitter has introduced several features and changes.
In 2022, the firm came up with a subscription package for the verified blue tick mark.
In April 2023, Musk introduced a feature that allows media publishers to charge users on per article basis.
This followed the announcement that Twitter users will be able to monetise their content, including long-form text and hours-long videos.
Providing updates later in May, the Twitter CEO said the platform would take a 10 percent cut on content subscriptions after the first year.
