Twitter has finally announced the long-overdue, voice tweets. The announcement was made via a recent blog post by Maya Patterson and Rémy Bourgoin of Twitter.
Tweeting with your voice is not too different from Tweeting with text. To start, open the Tweet composer and tap the new icon with wavelengths. You’ll see your profile photo with the record button at the bottom tap this to record your voice.
Each voice Tweet captures up to 140 seconds of audio. Have more to say? Keep talking. Once you reach the time limit for a Tweet, a new voice Tweet starts automatically to create a thread. Once you’re done, tap the Done button to end your recording and go back to the composer screen to Tweet.
The whole process seems pretty straightforward. Users can write a new tweet as they normally would, but alongside the typical attach a photo or video, there will be a new button that will record a quick audio message. You can use the recording feature in iOS as well.
You can Tweet a Tweet. But now you can Tweet your voice!
For now, the feature is only available to some iOS, although the company says all iOS users should have access “in the coming weeks.” We have not heard anything regarding Android or web rollout yet.
