How to enable audio and video calls?
According to a screenshot provided by the website, the option to enable audio and video calling is located within the microblogging website’s settings and is in the form of a toggle.
People can also choose who can call them: those in their address book, those they follow, verified handles, or all three.
How to make audio and video calls?
To do so, first update the app, then navigate to Settings> Privacy & Safety> Direct Messages> Enable Audio & Video Calling.
Finally, click to send a direct message (DM) to someone; the phone icon will appear in the upper-right corner.
