Elon Musk to Ditch Phone Numbers for X Messaging

Elon Musk

Billionaire Elon Musk has come up with a surprising social media post as usual. In the post he shared on X, he wrote that he is going to stop using the phone number within a few months.

He says he will ditch the phone number and instead use the micro-blogging platform X (formerly Twitter) for text messaging and audio/video calls.

Musk’s post is part of his promotion of the audio/video calling features released by X in October last year. Phone numbers are not required to use this service. This facility can also be used on iOS, Android and PCs.

Musk is working hard to make X an “everything app” with all online services. As part of that, many features are being introduced to the app.
