X Audio Video Call feature is now available for all users: Elon Musk's social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, is now letting all users make video and phone calls without needing to pay for a premium subscription. This move is seen as a direct challenge to competitors like Meta's WhatsApp.

X engineer Enrique Barragan announced the update, explaining that non-premium users can now try out audio and video calling. However, there's a catch: users can only receive calls from accounts they follow or have saved in their contacts. 

In addition, both users must have interacted through direct messages at least once to connect via a call. However, users can adjust their settings to allow calls from anyone on the platform if they want.

Previously, X only offered this feature to iOS users who had a premium subscription. Then, they expanded it to Android users earlier this year, but it was still limited to premium subscribers.
