280 characters are few? Voice tweets take care of continuing the conversation. In fact, Twitter has just announced a new feature that allows users to be able to record their voice to attach to their post. For now, the feature is only available to some iOS users but will catch up with all others over the next few weeks. Unfortunately, we don't know when it will also be usable on Android smartphones.

You can Tweet to Tweet. But now you can Tweet your voice!

Operation is very simple. Just open the section dedicated to new posts, click on the sound waves icon and start recording. As with written tweets, also in this case there is a limit: 140 seconds. It is still possible to continue speaking beyond this time, but the system will automatically split the audio creating a discussion. Once finished, you will obviously need to click on the "Finish" button. The profile picture will be displayed as a static image on the audio clip.

Other users will see the voice tweet on their Home. Playback will start in a new window located in a lower bar so as to being able to continue listening to it while scrolling the page. In short, it will be possible to listen to the tweet while doing something else and - as far as it opens - even if you exit the popular app. According to Techradar, it is not possible to reply or retweet with an audio clip.

As mentioned, the feature is available to some users by selecting the version of Twitter for iOS. There should be no doubt about the arrival of the Android version in the future as well.



The new Redmi Note 9s is available for purchase on Amazon at less than 250 euros. .
