X Starts Rolling Out New Audio And Video Calling Features
X, the social network previously known as Twitter, has started to roll out a pair of new features that will allow people to place calls using the service.
The new feature will allow people to place and receive both audio and video calls using the X app, with some users already starting to receive notifications that the feature is available to them when they open the app.
There is also a new option to enable audio and video calling within the app’s settings, too.
Not everyone can use the new feature yet, and it isn’t clear if it will only be available to X Premium subscribers. But The Verge notes that there are some privacy options that can be enabled for those who want to limit who can call them.
There’s also a new “Enable audio and video calling” toggle within the app’s settings, which says you can “turn the feature on and then select who you’re comfortable using it with.” It includes options to allow audio and video calls from only people in your address book, people you follow, verified users, or all three.
There’s no public timeline for a wider rollout of this new feature, and this limited launch hasn’t been officially confirmed by X, either. Owner Elon Musk had confirmed that the feature was something that the company was working on, however.
