Sending voice DMs on Twitter is being made available only for Android and iOS users for now, but users can listen to the messages they receive even via a Web browser. Twitter says that the new feature will give users more ways to express themselves and create a more human experience for storytellers and listeners alike.
“India is a priority market for Twitter and that is why we’re constantly testing new features and learning from people’s experience on the service here. We’re excited to bring the voice messages in DMs experiment to the country and give people a new way to express themselves and help them connect through the nuances, emotion, and empathy built by hearing someone’s voice,” said Manish Maheshwari, Managing Director, Twitter India.
Twitter had first introduced audio messaging on its platform with Voice Tweets in June last year. It allows users to send voice notes as tweets with or without accompanying text.
