So you really want your X back? 🤨 Forgive me, but what could make you see 𝕏 (the former bird app) more often? 🤪
This week, Twitter – yes, I still call it Twitter (now 𝕏) finally took the wraps off its long-awaited audio and video call feature. 🤙🏼
By the look of things, the video quality does seem better than the initial test clips shared by Elon a couple of weeks ago, but the feature doesn't have a button. Duh. 🙄 It takes a little snooping around to figure out how to make a call, so I'll let Ladou help you get around in this quick guide. 🔖
Not wanting to be left out in featuresland, WhatsApp now allows two accounts on a single device, so you don't need to juggle between apps or carry two phones, while TikTok is testing 15-minute long-form videos as it preps up to go head-to-head with Twitter (now 𝕏) and YouTube. 📹
Sssh....we also heard that Instagram is trying to copy from Elon's playbook as it experiments with a feature that will allow you to see only posts from paid verified users. I like how Elon Musk is leaving a Mark on Zuckerberg. 🤐
Why not catch up on all of these new features and other innovative products like the driverless taxis in Japan, the all-electric vehicle that wants to be a 'smartphone on wheels', plus venture funding stories and technology insights across emerging markets and the rest of the world?
Until next week,
