Twitter (X) CEO Linda Yaccarino confirms video chat feature to ‘Everything App’

Twitter (X) CEO Linda Yaccarino has confirmed the forthcoming introduction of video chat on the platform.

CNBC’s Sara Eisen interviewed Yaccarino, who stated, “Soon you’ll be able to make video calls on the platform without sharing your phone number.”

This advancement lines up with Yaccarino and Musk’s common vision of changing X into an “everything application,” enveloping long-structure video, payments, and maker subscription.

This disclosure comes closely following a to some degree puzzling virtual entertainment post by X designer Andrea Conway recently. She expressed, “Just called somebody on X,” trailed by four detonating head emoticons.

Although the post didn’t expressly demonstrate whether the call was voice or video, it is presently obvious that she was implying video calls.

The utility of X’s video brings in an all around soaked video-visit scene, highlighting contenders like Zoom, Microsoft Groups, Google Meet, and Apple FaceTime, isn’t promptly obvious.

Musk’s changes on the platform

However, as Musk and Yaccarino steer the company’s trajectory, they increasingly view the platform, formerly known as Twitter, as evolving beyond mere tweets into a dynamic real-time hub encompassing various forms of media, communication, and financial transactions.

One of X’s initial forays into new domains was the introduction of long-form videos.

In May, the company unveiled the Twitter Blue subscription, affording subscribers the ability to upload videos of up to two hours in duration.

Payment to creators

Furthermore, X has recently initiated compensation for content creators who have amassed a significant following, with one user claiming earnings of $24,000.

Yaccarino reiterated the company’s prior statements regarding X’s potential as a payment platform. She said, “Payments between you and a friend, between you and one of your creators. So there’s been a lot going on in the rebrand, which really represents a liberation from Twitter.

“A liberation that allowed us to evolve past a legacy mindset and thinking and to reimagine how everyone, everyone on spaces who’s listening, everybody who’s watching around the world, it’s going to change how we congregate, how we entertain, how we transact all in one platform.”
