Twitter introduces Voice DM feature in India, Brazil, and Japan , this new feature allows users to send a voice DM or a voice clip to the Twitter contact.
As per a Twitter report, this feature will be launched in an organized way, so it is conceivable that some of the users won’t see the feature appear immediately. The micro-blogging users can send as long as 140 seconds in length voice messages in private talks. This component is as of now being tested in India, Brazil, and Japan and will be accessible for both iOS and Android users.
With this option, users get the option of sending a personalised voice note in their DMs (direct messages) or send them as voice tweets, a feature that the company released last year.
The Verge reported that to utilize this new feature, a user has to simply open the chatbox of the concerned contact, tap on the voice icon placed in the bottom right corner and begin recording. Once a user has recorded the voice message, he should next tap on the stop icon to wrap up.
Back in Last Year, Twitter had launched Voice Notes Feature, where voice recording was to be added to your tweets. However, it didn’t take off as expected.
How To Use This Feature
Similar to voice tweets, each voice DM is of 140 seconds long and the feature will be available to both Android and iOS users. This feature is also expected to come to Web Platform soon.
To get started,
iPhone and iPad users will also get the option of press-and-hold to record the voice note and then swipe up and release to send the audio clip to the other user.
India – A Priority Market
Manish Maheshwari, managing director of Twitter India, upon the announcement of the feature, said, “India is a priority market for Twitter and that is why we’re constantly testing new features and learning from people’s experience on the service here.”
Alex Ackerman-Greenberg, product manager for direct messages at Twitter, also added, “We hope letting people record and send voice messages as DMs will enhance their conversational experience by adding convenience and expression.”
