In a recent tweet, Elon Musk, the owner of X, which was once known as Twitter, hinted at the debut of a new feature that would allow users to initiate video and audio calls using the social media program. This new feature will allow users to launch calls through Twitter.
Twitter Allow Voice And Video Calls
Elon Musk recently sent a tweet in which he described the new function and listed some of its qualities. He stated that the new feature will operate on iOS, Android, Mac, and PC. Additionally, he stated that a phone number will not be required to utilize the tool.
Video & audio calls coming to X:— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 31, 2023
– Works on iOS, Android, Mac & PC
– No phone number needed
– X is the effective global address book
That set of factors is unique.
Aside from announcing that the functionality is “coming,” Musk did not provide any further information regarding when it may arrive.
This is not the first time that we have heard that Twitter/X users can make audio and video calls to one another. Back in July, the product designer at the firm, Andrew Conway, posted some screenshots of the function when it was being used.

The choices for audio and video calls have been added to the upper left corner of the DM screen, as seen in the picture. There is no information on whether or if this feature will only be accessible to subscribers of the Blue tier.
According to Musk, video and voice calls on Twitter/X are “unique” since he considers X to be the “effective global address book.” It makes more sense to contact individuals you already know and have in your address book, and the majority of us do so either directly or through an app like WhatsApp, which is also accessible on all of the main platforms. To us, it makes more sense to call people you already know and have in your address book.
However, the voice and video conversations are an additional step towards Musk’s goal of X being the “everything app,” which would cover chatting, calls, banking, payment services, and more. This “everything app” will have all of these features and more.
