Twitter is integrating a new feature that will soon allow users to download videos straight from the app. 

The announcement was made by Twitter Senior Product Designer Andrea Conway in a tweet.  

According to the image, features such as download, video playback speed, captions, and sharing videos will be accessible through a new task bar. 

Users replied to Conway’s tweet by suggesting more video features for the app. 

“We need resolution options, though. Otherwise, awesome work,” one user wrote. “Great feedback - thank you,” the senior designer responded. 

While it is still unclear when these features will arrive, its reveal comes a week after the social media platform introduced two-hour video uploads for Twitter Blue subscribers.

Twitter’s Transition into ‘X,’ the Everything App 

Over the past months, Twitter has been ramping up its features, branching out from being solely a text-based platform by integrating Spaces, Twitter Blue, and soon new video features.  

These efforts line up with Twitter CEO Elon Musk’s plans to turn the social networking service into “X,” - what he calls the “everything app.”  

The upcoming change also comes two weeks after Musk announced that he has chosen Linda Yaccarino as Twitter’s new CEO, who will take over his role come June.  

“Looking forward to working with Linda to transform this platform into X, the everything app,” he wrote.
