Twitter is trying another feature that will permit users to record voice clips to publish as tweets.
Voice tweets join the many existing manners by which users can communicate on Twitter – a list which incorporates photographs, videos, GIFs, and plain content.
“Over the years, photos, videos, gifs, and extra characters have allowed you to add your own flair and personality to your conversations. But sometimes 280 characters aren’t enough and some conversational nuances are lost in translation.
So starting today, we’re testing a new feature that will add a more human touch to the way we use Twitter – your very own voice.”
From the outset, making voice tweets is a feature that will be made available to a restricted group of people on Twitter for iOS. In the coming weeks, everybody on iOS should approach voice tweets.
Everybody, whether or not they’re on iOS, Android, or desktop, will have the option to see voice tweets in their feed and hear them out.
Here’s the way to create a voice tweet using the Twitter application for iOS.
Making a voice tweet is like making some other type of tweet.
First, open the tweet writer and search for the new voice symbol. It resembles sound wavelengths.
After tapping the voice symbol you will see your profile picture with the record button at the bottom. Tap on the record button to start recording your voice.
Voice tweets are capable for recording 140 seconds of sound. The individuals who wish to go longer can continue talking and the extra sound will be associated in string of different tweets.
When voice tweets are published people will see them in their feed among other tweets.
To listen to a voice tweet simply tap the picture with the person’s profile photograph.
Tweets will play in another window that stays docked at the base of the screen, so users can listen while proceeding to look through their feed.
“There’s a lot that can be left unsaid or uninterpreted using text, so we hope voice Tweeting will create a more human experience for listeners and storytellers alike.
Whether it’s #storytime about your encounter with wild geese in your neighborhood, a journalist sharing breaking news, or a first-hand account from a protest, we hope voice Tweeting gives you the ability to share your perspectives quickly and easily with your voice.”
Those are the fundamental things you have to know about voice tweets. Here’s some additional data that may also be useful.
As of now, voice tweets are constrained to original tweets only.
That implies it’s not possible for users to record their voice and publish it as an answer or a retweet with comment.
It’s unknown if that will ever change. On one hand, Twitter is missing out an open door for expanded user engagement by not permitting voice answers.
Then again, not the entirety of that engagement would be certain. Voice notes open up a totally different road for badgering on Twitter, so maybe it’s best that the feature is restricted to original tweets.
