Social media platform X, previously recognized as Twitter, is introducing a preliminary edition of video and audio calling for select users, as indicated by the platform’s chief technology officer and owner, Elon Musk. The billionaire is actively working to transform X into an all-encompassing application.
Musk referred to a post on the platform that guides users on activating this feature as an “Early version of video & audio calling on X.”
This new capability is part of a series of fresh features and alterations to the platform’s fundamental experience initiated under Musk’s leadership, following his acquisition of the social media company nearly a year ago.
Following the rebranding of Twitter as X, Musk has expressed his intention to transform the platform into a super-app, providing various services encompassing messaging, social networking, and peer-to-peer payments.
Musk had previously hinted at this feature in August, emphasizing that users would not require a phone number for these functions, and they would be accessible on Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android, and personal computers.
