Elon Musk making X into ‘Everything App’

Published

on

Social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, is bringing audio and video calling.

A new development was announced by none other than the platform’s chief technology officer and owner, Elon Musk.

In a recent post on the platform, Musk unveiled the early version of video and audio calling features, describing it as an “Early version of video & audio calling on X.” This innovation marks yet another significant step in Musk’s grand vision for X, which he has been diligently reshaping since acquiring the social media giant nearly a year ago.

Once known as Twitter, the platform was rebranded as X under Musk’s leadership, and it has since witnessed a whirlwind of transformation. Musk’s ambitious objective is to turn the platform into a super-app, one that offers a wide range of services, from messaging and social networking to peer-to-peer payments.

What makes this development even more intriguing is Musk’s announcement that users will not need a phone number to access these audio and video calling features. This means that X is expanding its reach across different platforms, making these features accessible on Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android, and personal computers.

Some of the key milestones in this transformation include enhanced privacy features, better content curation, and an overall improved user experience. With the addition of audio and video calling, X takes another step forward in becoming a one-stop destination for social networking, communication, and a wide array of services.

Elon Musk’s ambitious vision for X as an “everything app” is taking shape with the introduction of audio and video calling features. As X continues to evolve and expand its offerings, it’s clear that the platform is not content with simply being a microblogging site.

With these new capabilities, X aims to become a versatile communication and networking hub, making it a force to be reckoned with in the ever-changing world of social media. Stay tuned as X continues to unveil innovative features and redefine the way we connect and communicate online.

Despite the companies’ announcement in February of launching a joint sports streaming service in the autumn to attract younger viewers, the deal faces DOJ scrutiny and an antitrust lawsuit from FuboTV. While Disney and Warner Bros remained silent on the matter, Fox declined to comment.

The joint venture encompasses a broad range of professional and collegiate sports rights, including NFL, NBA, MLB, FIFA World Cup, and college competitions, offering non-exclusive access to sports networks such as ESPN, Fox Sports 1, and TNT via a new streaming app.
