X” will allow you to make voice and video calls.
Elon Musk, the owner of the social networking platform formerly known as “Twitter,” which has been rebranded as “X,” has announced that the platform will soon enable voice and video calls. This move is part of a broader effort to transform the venue into a comprehensive application. While Musk did not specify a launch date for these new features, he mentioned that they will be available on various devices, including Android, iOS, Mac, and PC, and will not require a phone number.
Musk has been vocal about his plans to reshape the platform into a more diversified and comprehensive application, drawing inspiration from China’s “WeChat” platform. This transformation aims to enable users to socialize and manage financial activities within the same venue.
Additionally, “X” has been making moves in the cryptocurrency space, with its payments arm, Twitter Payments, recently obtaining a significant license from the state of Rhode Island in the United States. This license allows “X” to engage in cryptocurrency-related activities, such as trading, wallet services, and payments, on behalf of its users.
Since Elon Musk acquired the platform in October, there has been a decline in its advertising activity due to concerns over content moderation and changes in management style. In response, Musk has explored subscription-based models to sustain the platform’s revenue.
The rebranding of “Twitter” to “X” and the introducing of voice and video calls indicate a broader strategy to reshape the platform’s identity and offerings.
