Over the years, photos, videos, gifs, and extra characters have allowed you to add your own flair and personality to your conversations. But sometimes 280 characters aren’t enough and some conversational nuances are lost in translation. So starting today, we’re testing a new feature that will add a more human touch to the way we use Twitter – your very own voice.
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. – Maya Patterson (Staff Product Designer) & Rémy Bourgoin (Senior Software Engineer)
How to Use Tweet Your Audio Feature
Now that we know tweeting your audio is a quite cool feature to have, let’s get to know the specifics of it.
Like the time limitation that is up to 140 seconds on tweeting audio on Twitter. How this works is that once you start recording the tweet, & reach the time limit, automatically a new voice Tweet starts & creates a thread. And as soon as you’re done, click on the Done button & end the recording. Now as simple as, go back to the composer screen to Tweet.

Compatibility of Tweet Your Audio Feature
Since the Tweet-Audio feature from Twitter is quite cool, everyone would want it as soon as possible. However, the rolling out process will take a bit of time for smooth transitions. For now, the feature has been rolled out for iOS platform only. The timeline for the other platforms like Android hasn’t been finalized yet. However, it can be available for other users as well.
The playback will start in a new window docked at the bottom of your timeline and you can listen as you scroll. You can also keep listening while doing other things on your phone or on the go.
On the above screenshot, you can see the audio playback is being played at the bottom of the screen. Other users would need to just click on the post & the audio tweet will get started. Simple as that!!
Almost every service provider & social media platform is coming up with something or the other to keep users engaged. & on the other hand, due to COVID-19 pandemic & working-from-home, users are really exploring these updates & giving their feedback.
