Twitter rolls out Voice DM feature for Android and iOS users
Twitter has now started developing a new feature which will enable its users to use a voice messaging tool for direct messages. The voice messaging option is about to enter testing phases now and will now slowly be available for testing.
Users in India, Brazil, and Japan will start getting the option of a voice tweet in a step-wise manner from February 17. This test version of the feature will be available to both Android and iOS users.
Twitter had initially released this tool in 2020 which would allow users to record and send short voice clips as DMs from voice tweets. According to the company, each voice tweet can not be longer than 140 seconds.
For now, only mobile users operating Twitter from an Android or iOS phone will be able to access this feature and send voice DMs. Users operating the web browser version can listen to these clips but cannot record them.
Talking about this feature, Twitter said, “The new feature will give users more ways to express themselves and create a more human experience for storytellers and listeners alike.”
Managing Twitter of Twitter India, Manish Maheshwari said, “India is a priority market for Twitter & that is why we’re constantly testing new features and learning from people’s experience on the service here.”
