Twitter is testing a feature that allows you to add audio messages to tweets. The feature was announced on Wednesday (16) and, for now, is only available to iPhone users (iOS). Audio tweets can be accompanied by text and can be up to 140 seconds long. The functionality is being tested on some profiles and is expected to be released on all Apple devices in the coming weeks. There is no forecast for the feature to arrive on Android.

The recording is made from a new sound wave icon added to the page for making common tweets. If the user exceeds the duration limit, a new message will be started automatically, creating an audio thread. It is worth mentioning that the feature only allows the user to record their own voice to add to the post, not being allowed to upload sound files from the gallery. Check out how to use audios on Twitter below.
