In its effort to become a one-stop social platform, X (formerly known as Twitter) recently included a feature that allows you to make audio and video calls on its iOS app. While this feature helps you stay more connected to your followers, it can be intrusive and potentially harmful, considering X’s high level of toxicity. Imagine anyone being able to call you on X by default! Don’t delay till it happens. You can turn it off now. Use this simple guide to turn off audio and video calls in X on iPhone.

  2. Go to Settings and SupportSettings and privacyPrivacy and safety.

    Go to Settings and Support, Settings and privacy, Privacy and safety on Twitter
  3. Tap Direct messages.
  4. Toggle off Enable audio and video calling.
