The "X" platform, formerly known as Twitter, is currently experimenting with adding features that allow voice and video calls, as confirmed by billionaire Elon Musk, the platform's owner.

Musk commented on a post by a user named "DogeDesigner," who explained how to activate this feature, stating that it is the initial version of video and voice calls on X.

In July of the previous year, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX announced the rebranding of "Twitter" to "X" as part of his plans to transform the company.

He has repeatedly expressed his intention to make the network a comprehensive multipurpose application similar to "WeChat" in China, which allows users to exchange text messages and make payments simultaneously.

Currently, it appears that the option for making calls is exclusively available to subscribers of the "Blue" service, who can benefit from the privileges granted to them, including early access to new products during the testing phase.

According to a screenshot posted by "DogeDesigner" on his account, users can enhance their messaging experience with voice and video calls.

They can choose whom to use these features with, including people in their address book, those they follow, and verified users.

Musk announced last August that these new features would be available on devices running on both Android and iOS, as well as on Mac and personal computers (PCs), without the need for a phone number.
