Twitter now allows audio posting through the iOS app
Twitter has always offered itself as a social network in which text was more important than anything else. Initially launched allowing messages of up to 140 characters, the company expanded this limit to 280, and over time it started to allow the upload of images, gifs and videos.
Now, the platform takes a new step by allowing the sending of voice messages. It is not about the possibility of converting speech to text, but of uploading audios. For now the novelty is restricted to iOS, and with that only owners of iPhones and iPads can test the novelty.
The audio can be recorded via the new shortcut next to the media button in the application’s message composer. After recording the user can insert a message before sharing the tweet.
Even those who do not own an iPhone will be able to listen to the messages of those on iOS, just will not be able to share their own audios so far.
Twitter, in its official account, did not imply that the feature is released to only a few users as a form of testing. Therefore, those interested in an Apple device can update the app through the App Store to check out the news.
It is worth mentioning that something very requested by users is the possibility of sending messages via direct messages (DM). The company still owes this resource, but it has taken a good step so that, in general, other forms of communication are present on the platform.
