On Wednesday, The micro-blogging platform Twitter Inc said it is rolling out a new feature that is voice recognition functionality which will allow the users to tweet their voice. The company said in a statement that the recording duration may go up to 140 seconds in a single tweet.
“Twitter is where people go to talk about what’s happening. Over the years, photos, videos, gifs, and extra characters have allowed people to add their own flair and personality to their conversations. But sometimes 280 characters aren’t enough and some conversational nuances are lost in translation. So starting today, Twitter is testing a new feature that will add a more human touch to the way people use Twitter – through their voices.
“Tweeting with voice is not too different from Tweeting with text. To start, people can open the Tweet composer and tap the new icon with wavelengths. They’ll see their profile photo with the record button at the bottom – they can then tap this to record their voice,” the company said in a statement to the press.
The feature will be available to a limited number of users on Apple’s iOS platform for now and will reach to more iOS users in the coming weeks. The voice Tweets will appear on timelines alongside other Tweets. The users will be able to create voice tweets using a new “wavelengths” icon on the Tweet composer screen.
Twitter along with other social media companies will be under pressure to curb content such as abuse, harassment and misinformation on their platforms. You can get more information from the Twitter help center.
