## X (formerly Twitter) Prepares to Bring Voice and Video Calling to Android

Right now, many of us are curious about what’s happening with X (formerly Twitter). Elon Musk’s decisions have taken the platform on a downhill spiral, and things don’t seem to be improving. However, X is now getting ready to introduce voice and video calling for Android users.

X stands out among social media platforms on the internet. While other platforms offer more efficient ways to contact people, such as direct messaging, X only has DMs. Although it’s not X’s biggest issue, the lack of communication methods is a concern that users want addressed.

## Voice and Video Calling Comes to X’s Android Version

We all know the drill when it comes to new features on our favorite social media sites; they tend to launch on iOS first. The voice and video calling feature initially became available for iOS, but X is planning to bring it to Android soon.

Although X has yet to make an official announcement, a how-to page for the feature was found, indicating an upcoming arrival on Android. So, when it finally arrives, make sure to update your app.

## An X Premium Subscription Is Needed for Voice and Video Calling

If you’re eager to use X for calling your friends, bear in mind that an X Premium subscription is required. This isn’t surprising considering that most of Musk’s introduced features are for paying customers.

However, you don’t need to be a premium member to receive calls; payment is only necessary if you want to initiate a call. Furthermore, the person you want to call must have messaged you first. This is a good precaution to prevent calls from unfamiliar individuals. Additionally, you have control over who can call you through the Direct Messages settings.

## Is Voice and Video Calling a Major Release for X?

Although this feature may be exciting for frequent Twitter users, its significance as a major release is uncertain. With numerous other methods available for making and receiving calls, it remains to be seen how significant this addition will be. Nonetheless, it is still a valuable feature to have.
