X has launched a new handy feature that will enhance your video viewing experience on the platform. The social media giant has launched more ways to customize the quality of your video in-stream.

When you tap on the gear icon along the bottom bar of the video playback on X, you will notice a new option to choose video playback quality; this can as well go up as high as 1080p.

With this, you are guaranteed to see top-quality video playback on X; though, this could be influenced by your network connection. The default setting, however, remains “auto,” which will optimize the playback based on your capacity. You can manually change the playback quality based on your preference.

In related news, X is expanding video and audio calling to everyone. With this, the feature will now be available to non-premium users on X.

X launched audio and video calling a couple of weeks ago, but limited its availability to premium users alone.

The reason for this sudden change is anyone’s guess, but you can get started with audio and video calling on X by updating your app to the latest version.

“We’re slowly rolling out audio and video calling to non-premium users; try it out! Now you can also choose to allow calls from everyone.”

Elon Musk’s vision is to transform X into a platform that offers a lot of services, including peer-to-peer payments, shopping, creator tools, and more. A couple of weeks ago, the company confirmed the time frame of its upcoming P2P payments.

X was licensed to offer payment services in a dozen US states in December, and the company has announced that it will launch peer-to-peer in 2004.

In a blog post, X announced that it will be rolling out its peer-to-peer payment service this year, which the company hopes will help it complete with PayPal and the like.

We will launch peer-to-peer payments, unlocking more user utility and new opportunities for commerce, and showcasing the power of living more of your life in one place.”

X continues to expand the scope of its platform, and this time, it has announced a new partnership with shopping giant Shopify. The new partnership will provide more opportunity for Shopify merchants to promote their products on X.

The new deal will facilitate all-new ways to help Shopify sellers advertise their products on X. While this may not be described as a new partnership, it builds on previous arrangements between the two companies.
