Elon Musk announces major change for X that will affect every user
He’s taking on Zuck in more ways than one
Taking to his own platform this morning, MMusk wrote that audio and video calls will soon be coming to X as he seeks to turn his platform into the global address book.
Video & audio calls coming to X:
- Works on iOS, Android, Mac & PC
- No phone number needed
- X is the effective global address book
That set of factors is unique.

Elon Musk announces major change for X that will affect every user.
A unique set of factors, it may be, but cybersecurity experts have raised serious concerns about its safety.
Global Cybersecurity Advisor at ESET explained to the Daily Mail:
“It seems Musk has once again got an idea in his head but not yet planned it through completely. Calling other profiles via social media apps such as Instagram already exists so it’s not too dissimilar to this as a feature.
“However, when removing the blocking of followers as a feature, X will need to adopt a way of keeping unsolicited calls from reaching users wanting to remain private.”
