Elon Musk’s own social network X is rolling out the ability to make audio and video calls directly from the app to its Android client.
One of the X engineers working on the project posted about the feature release and said it will be available to Android users after an app update.
Notably, any user can receive a call but only paid users can place a call. It’s one of the long list of things only paid users can do on X. However, X removed the ability for premium users to set an NFT as a profile picture earlier in the month.
Users can enable or disable calling through Settingle > Privacy and safety > Direct Messages > Enable audio and video calling. The same menu gives people the ability to control who can call them: people in their address book, people they follow, and verified users. They can select multiple options from these selections.
X is pretty much still ambitious about becoming an “everything app.” Earlier this month, the company published its vision for 2024 including launching peer-to-peer payment, new xAI-powered features such as “show dissimilar posts,” and more ad products for marketers.
Reports suggested that advertisers are leaving X and opting to spend money on platforms like LinkedIn after Musk told them “Go f*ck yourself” at an event in November 2023.
