Elon Musk, the CEO of X (formerly Twitter), surprised users with an exciting new update – the introduction of a ‘live video’ feature on the micro-blogging platform. In his announcement, Musk revealed that the live video feature is now operational and works quite well. To access it, users simply need to tap on the camera icon in the composer tab and then select the ‘live’ button. From there, they can add a description and location to their tweet and go live with just a tap.
Musk himself put the live video to the test by sharing a video featuring him and his teammates. In the video, he even showcased his dumbbell and weight-lifting skills, making the experience engaging and interactive for his followers.
For users who wish to download videos, Musk recently made another update. X users with verified accounts now have the ability to download videos, but only with permission from the content creator. To access this feature, users can tap on the ‘…’ icon when the video is in full-screen mode. In the near future, Musk plans to enable video downloads with a simple tap and hold gesture, similar to how users download pictures.
Additionally, Musk introduced a new feature that allows subscribers to hide the blue verification tick on their accounts. This option provides users with more control over their profile and posts, as they can choose to conceal the checkmark. However, some features may still reveal the user’s active subscription status, and certain functionalities may be limited while the checkmark is hidden. Nevertheless, Musk emphasized that they will continue to improve this feature to enhance the user experience.
With these recent updates, X is continuously working towards creating a safer and more customizable platform for its users. The live video feature enhances interaction and engagement, while the option to download videos provides greater accessibility to content. The ability to hide the verification tick empowers users to manage their online presence according to their preferences.
It’s evident that Elon Musk and the X team are dedicated to evolving the platform based on user feedback and requirements. By actively listening to the community, X aims to deliver a better, more enjoyable experience for all its users. As these updates roll out, it’s safe to say that X is shaping up to be an even more dynamic and user-friendly micro-blogging platform in the near future.
