Announced in June, the voice tweet feature extends to more iOS users. Initially, Twitter had made it available only to a small number of users with iPhone but today - on the same platform - it announces its expansion. E per Android? The company claims to be at work but will have to wait until 2021.

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.



We’re rolling out voice Tweets to more of you on iOS so we can keep learning about how people use audio.

Since introducing the feature in June, we've taken your feedback seriously and are working to have transcription available to make voice Tweets more accessible. (1/2)

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 even if you exit the popular app.

Twitter also welcomed the criticisms made that mentioned the lack of access to this feature by people with disabilities and has set to work to make its platform more inclusive. In the same post, he announced that he has created dedicated teams and has plans adding automated subtitles to videos and voice messages by the beginning of 2021.



iPhone 11 can be purchased on Amazon with one discount of 90 euros.  .
