Micro-blogging site Twitter is working on a new feature that lets users share voice messages in Direct Messages. The company said that it is rolling out the feature in India, Brazil, and Japan. The feature will roll out starting today in a phased manner. Voice Messages is an extension to the Voice Tweets feature that the company introduced to a select number of Twitter users last year. Users could voice record a post that is up to 140 seconds long and post it as a tweet. The same applies to voice messages where you can send a 140-second voice note to anyone in DM. Let’s take a look at the voice messages feature being rolled out to Twitter users.
