Twitter is testing the implementation of a video call feature, following in the footsteps of other social networks like Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp, which have already had this tool for some time. The social media platform, led by tycoon Elon Musk, is working on various new features to improve the user experience and attract more users.For example, Twitter is introducing a new ‘Coins’ function, which is based on virtual currency that users can use to pay creators for high-quality content. Now, the platform is also testing a new video call feature, which is currently only available to a select group of users, as verified by developer Alessandro Paluzzi.

With this feature, Twitter users will be able to have video conversations with their friends through the platform’s chat feature. To initiate a call, users simply need to press a video camera icon located in the upper right corner of the screen. The call interface is designed to be simple, with three icons at the bottom of the screen: a microphone button to mute the call, a video camera button to activate or deactivate the image, and a phone icon to end the call.

This video call feature is part of Twitter’s new interaction formats, which were announced by Musk in November as part of the Twitter 2.0 vision. The platform aims to implement the ability to make encrypted voice and video calls in the future.
