X (Formerly Twitter) to Introduce Audio and Video Calling, Confirms Musk

By now, you’ve probably heard about Twitter’s transformation into “X” under Elon Musk’s leadership. Over the past few months, they’ve made some controversial moves like eliminating the block feature and making dark mode the default setting, which has sparked various reactions from users worldwide. Now, X has some exciting news on the horizon, they’re gearing up to introduce audio and video calling. Let’s dive into the details below.

X Adding Audio and Video Calling Soon!

Elon Musk, the current head of the rebranded ‘X’ (previously known as Twitter), has revealed plans for the platform to introduce audio and video calling features. While the exact launch date hasn’t been disclosed, this new feature is expected to become available in the near future.

Once launched, users will be able to initiate both audio and video calls with fellow X users across various devices, including iPhones, Android smartphones, Macs, and Windows PCs. Notably, this addition was hinted at in a prior X post from Musk.

A standout feature of this upcoming addition is that users won’t need to use their phone numbers for making calls through the platform. This functionality is anticipated to be accessible within X’s direct messages (DMs), allowing users to seamlessly make audio or video calls to their contacts within the platform.

Back in July, X designer Andrea Conway shared a demonstration mockup showcasing how this feature might look and function. It’s anticipated that both audio and video calling options will be conveniently located in the top right corner of the DM window, allowing for easy switching between the two.

This move aligns with Musk’s vision of transforming X into an all-inclusive ‘super app.‘ By incorporating communication features, X aims to keep users engaged within the platform, potentially reducing the need to switch to other apps for such functionalities. As for whether the calls will be end-to-end encrypted, further details are awaited.

Currently, specific information about this upcoming feature remains limited. Questions linger about how it will compare to competitors like Instagram and WhatsApp. Will it support group calls in addition to one-on-one conversations? Can users choose who they can call or receive calls from? And will this feature be accessible to all users or reserved for those who subscribe?

Only time will provide answers to these questions. In the meantime, share your thoughts about this impending X feature in the comment section below.”
