Twitter is reportedly set to introduce audio and video calling features in the coming weeks. The features are anticipated to be made available to users in a limited test setting after being found in the Twitter app’s source code.
Users will be able to hold one-on-one or group calls with up to 10 other people using the audio calling feature. Users will be able to hold one-on-one or four-person group calls using the video calling capability.
Twitter’s new calling facilities are probably an attempt to compete with other social media sites like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, which already have calling capabilities. The features might also be a means for Twitter to facilitate user interaction and relationship development.
Twitter has not yet revealed the exact date that the new calling feature will go live. However, it’s anticipated that the features will be released in the coming weeks.
Here are some additional details about the new calling features
- The audio calling feature will use the same audio quality as the current voice DM feature.
- The video calling feature will use the same video quality as the current video DM feature.
- The calling features will be available on both the web and mobile versions of Twitter.
- The calling features will be free to use.
What do you think of the new calling features on Twitter?
The additional calling capabilities added to Twitter are a great development. They will facilitate user interaction and interpersonal relationship development. Additionally, the capabilities are probably going to help Twitter compete with other social media networks that already have calling capabilities.
As soon as the new calling features are available, I can’t wait to try them out. In my opinion, they will be a fantastic way to stay in touch with distant friends and family. I’m also curious to see how companies and other organisations make use of these capabilities.
