Android users can enable audio and video calls on X by updating their app, as announced by X engineer Enrique.

Customizable Call Settings

Users can manage call preferences in Settings > Privacy and Safety > Direct Messages, choosing who can initiate calls.

Affordable Tier for Verified Organizations

X introduced a new basic paid tier for verified organizations at $200 per month, offering a gold check-mark badge and other benefits.

Enhanced Presence for Smaller Businesses

The new tier aims to help smaller businesses grow faster on X by providing ad credits and priority support.

Video Download in DMs

X now allows users to download videos sent in direct messages (DMs), enhancing the platform's functionality.

Android Rollout Following iOS

After launching on iOS, X's audio and video calling capabilities are now available to Android users.

Subscription-Based Outbound Calling

Only X Premium subscribers can place audio and video calls, a strategy to attract new subscribers.
