Twitter recently rolled out audio tweets on its platform. It now seems Twitter’s latest interest with audio is now extending to a new feature. In a report ,
the company is testing a new feature in Brazil and will allow users to send voice messages directly to one another.
“We know people want more options for how they express themselves in conversations on Twitter — both publicly and privately,” Alex Ackerman-Greenberg, product manager for direct messages at Twitter was quoted by The Verge when he sent in a 20-second voice message to The Chris Welch.
Twitter is going to test a feature that will let users send voice messages through direct messages (DMs), as per a report. A Twitter executive revealed that the micro-blogging site plans to start testing voice DMs and Brazil will be the first country where the upcoming feature will be tested.
The Verge report also showed the interface for voice messages and looks simple. Playback control is now limited to playing and pausing a message. You can also record a message directly in line.
Although audio messages are relatively new for the Twitter platform, it is a feature which is currently available in a number of apps. Facebook allows for sending audio messages in Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp. As Twitter stated, voice messages add a “more human touch”.
