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.

Russian women want their men back from Ukraine
In a heartfelt plea, Russian women have taken to the streets demanding the safe return of their loved ones from the Ukrainian front.
The conflict in Ukraine has stretched on for years, and the toll on families has been immense. Mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters are uniting to call for an end to the fighting and the return of their men.
The women, often referred to as the “mothers of the front,” are growing increasingly frustrated with the ongoing conflict. They argue that their husbands, sons, and brothers have been away for far too long, and the human cost of the war is simply too high.
With no clear resolution in sight, their calls for peace and reconciliation are becoming more urgent.
This grassroots movement has sparked a national conversation in Russia, with many questioning the government’s handling of the conflict.
While the official stance has been to support the separatist forces in Ukraine, these women are highlighting the personal tragedies and broken families left in the wake of the war. Their determination to bring their loved ones home is palpable.
The situation raises important questions about the impact of long-term conflicts on families, the role of women in peace movements, the government’s response to public sentiment, and the prospects for a peaceful resolution in the ongoing Ukraine conflict.
