Twitter Added Voice Tweets Feature To The Platform
Twitter has launched yet another new feature, audio tweet. This is to say that you can now record your tweet in audio then tweet instead of typing. Starting from today, iOS users should begin receiving the new feature.
“Twitter is where you go to talk about what’s happening. Over the years, photos, videos, gifs, and extra characters have allowed you to add your own flair and personality to your conversations. But sometimes 280 characters aren’t enough and some conversational nuances are lost in translation.”
” So starting today, we’re testing a new feature that will add a more human touch to the way we use Twitter – your very own voice.”
“Tweeting with your voice is not too different from Tweeting with text. To start, open the Tweet composer and tap the new icon with wavelengths. You’ll see your profile photo with the record button at the bottom – tap this to record your voice.”
The feature will allow users to record audio clips of up to 140 seconds and attach these sound clips to their tweets.
“Each voice Tweet captures up to 140 seconds of audio. Have more to say? Keep talking. Once you reach the time limit for a Tweet, a new voice Tweet starts automatically to create a thread. Once you’re done, tap the Done button to end your recording and go back to the composer screen to Tweet”
How to Tweet an Audio Clip
To tweet an audio clip, users will open the tweet composer and tap on the new audio tweet icon.
This will open the new Twitter audio recording interface, which will allow users to start recording their sound clips.
According to Twitter , if you reach the time limit for an audio clip, it will automatically start a second audio tweet and create a thread with all of these voice recordings.
Once users have finished recording their audio clip (or tweets), they will need to tap the Done button, which will return them to the traditional tweet composer screen.
Publishing the audio tweet is then identical to publishing a normal tweet.
Audio tweets automatically create an image in which users will need to tap to listen to the clip.
It confirmed that all users will be able to listen to audio tweets, regardless of the platform.
“Creating voice Tweets will be available to a limited group of people on Twitter for iOS to start but in the coming weeks everyone on iOS should be able to Tweet with their voice. Everyone will be able to see (hear) them and reply”
It is unclear at this point when Twitter plans to roll the feature out on Android devices; but for now, iOS users should continue to rock audio tweets.
