Now rolling out audio and video calls to non-Premium subscribers, X.

X, the social media platform, has introduced a new update that extends its audio and video calling feature to all users, not just those with Premium subscriptions. Previously exclusive to Premium subscribers, this expansion allows more people to engage in real-time conversations directly within the X app.

The news of this update was shared by X engineer Enrique Barragan and CEO Linda Yaccarino, marking a significant shift in accessibility for the platform’s communication tools. X Premium, formerly known as Twitter Blue, offers additional features like post editing and longer video uploads, but now all users will soon have access to audio and video calling capabilities.

With this update, X joins the ranks of other popular messaging apps by integrating audio and video calling seamlessly into its interface. Utilizing the iOS CallKit API ensures that incoming calls are displayed on the Lock Screen, similar to traditional phone calls, for added convenience.

Concerns about privacy and unwanted calls were initially raised with the introduction of this feature. However, X users have control over their call settings, allowing them to customize who can initiate calls. Users can choose to receive calls from specific contacts, accounts they follow, or verified users, and they also have the option to disable audio and video calling entirely if they prefer.

To take advantage of these new features, users are encouraged to update their X app to the latest version available on the App Store. With this expansion, X aims to enhance communication and connectivity for all users across its platform.
