Twitter Voice Message Feature: Twitter India has introduced a new voice message feature in Direct Messages (DMs) on social media platforms. Users can now send Voice DM, which should be 140 seconds long. This feature has been made available for both Android and iOS users. Currently, the new feature is being launched in select countries, including India, Brazil and Japan.
On the new feature, Manish Maheshwari, Managing Director of Twitter India said that India is a priority country for Twitter and hence they are constantly testing new features and learning from the experience of people on the service. They are eager to bring voice messages to DMs in the country so that people can find a new way of expressing themselves and help them connect through emotions by listening to the voice of a person.
How to send Voice DM to your device?
Android users can send voice messages to existing or new chats by tapping on the voice recording icon. Once the audio message is over, they have to be tapped on the icon and send it again. On the other hand, iOS users also have the option to press and hold and record the message. After this, he has to swipe and release to send.
Although the new feature is available on iOS and Android devices, but users can also listen to voice messages in the web version. The voice message feature has been available on other social media platforms for quite some time. With the new chat option, Twitter is trying to encourage users to use the direct message option more.
Earlier, Twitter brought a new feature last year, so that users can decide who will be able to reply to their tweets and who is not. This new feature is available for the whole world including India. The thing to keep in mind in this feature is that Twitter users can prevent certain people from replying to their tweets but not from viewing, retweeting, retweeting, liking and sharing with comments.
