Twitter has initiated plans to start testing voice Direct Messages in Brazil, and it will be the first country where the upcoming feature will be launched.
An executive in the company revealed that the new feature is also expected to have a simple interface. Twitter had recently removed audio tweets for iOS users, but the update isn’t available for everyone yet.
Alex Ackerman-Greenberg, a Twitter executive said that they were aware that people wanted more options for how they express themselves in private and public conversations on Twitter.
“Voice messages on Twitter feature is expected to have a simple interface; there will just be a play/pause button. There would also be an in-line recording experience to make it easier to send these messages as part of the natural conversation flow.”
This feature makes it different from the audio tweets interface that Twitter had rolled out to some iOS users in June.
Ackerman-Greenberg Further revealed that the feature will be tested in Brazil first.
