Elon Musk’s social media platform, X, formerly known as Twitter, is introducing an early version of video and audio calling for select users. Musk, the billionaire owner and Chief Technology Officer of X, revealed the new feature in a post on the platform, describing it as an “Early version of video & audio calling on X.”
This move is part of a broader effort to transform X into an “everything app” with a diverse range of services. Musk has been actively reshaping the platform since acquiring it nearly a year ago.
Following the rebranding of Twitter as X, Musk has expressed his intention to turn the platform into a super-app, encompassing services such as messaging, social networking, and peer-to-peer payments.
In August, Musk hinted at this feature, emphasizing that users would not require a phone number to use it. The feature is set to be available on Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android, and personal computers, further expanding the platform’s capabilities beyond its original scope.
