Audio and video calls are becoming available on X, but only paying users will be able to use them. This is a function that had been announced by Elon Musk at the end of August , but since then we had not had much news. This Wednesday, however, some people have come across a notification that reports the news.
The functionality had been promised by Elon Musk
The message, which appears to be arriving first in the social network’s iOS application, says: “Audio and video calls are here!” As we can see in the screenshots in this article, it also invites users to set the necessary privacy settings to filter who can call them and who cannot.
X now also works for making calls
Once the function is available on your device, to make a call you will have to have an active X Premium subscription and search for the person you want to talk to in the Direct Messages section of the mobile application, enter their chat and press the phone icon. There you will find the two options available: audio call or video call.

Now, as we pointed out above, not everyone will be able to call each other freely. First of all, both users must have the function enabled from the application settings. Second, the call must support your established privacy settings. Let’s see how to configure X calls correctly.
