The most recent Twitter mobile app will support encrypted messages, Musk tweeted on Tuesday.

That indicates that none else can see the direct communications. The content of communications communicated between users is hidden from Twitter.

Musk revealed a number of more minor updates to Twitter’s direct messaging in the same tweet. It appears that users will be able to respond to any message, not just the most recent, and they can emoji their responses.

Voice and video chat was another new function that

Musk proposed for the platform.

In the launch, he stated that it would enable individuals to communicate with anyone worldwide “without giving them your phone number.”

He did not specify a specific time for the launch of the new chat functionality.

Twitter’s messaging feature has not developed much since it was introduced to the platform.

However, Musk has been trying to turn Twitter into an “everything app,” meaning users eventually could shop, communicate and consume media all in one place.

Recently, Twitter partnered with eToro to make it easier to trade stocks and cryptocurrencies.

Encrypted messages are not new to social media apps. WhatsApp has had message encryption for years.

Musk tweeted;

With latest version of app, you can DM reply to any message in the thread (not just most recent) and use any emoji reaction.

Release of encrypted DMs V1.0 should happen tomorrow. This will grow in sophistication rapidly. The acid test is that I could not see your DMs even if there was a gun to my head.

Coming soon will be voice and video chat from your handle to anyone on this platform, so you can talk to people anywhere in the world without giving them your phone number.
