Elon Musk, the influential entrepreneur and CEO of Twitter, has made some significant changes to the platform, including renaming it as X. While the new logo is still a work in progress due to Musk’s dissatisfaction with certain aspects, he has assured users that the final version will be unveiled soon. Additionally, Elon Musk has rolled out an exciting update exclusively for verified users on X, offering a new video download feature, initially available on iOS and soon to be extended to Android and the web version.
Renaming Twitter to X and Logo Improvements: Elon Musk has made the bold decision to rebrand Twitter as X. However, the logo is still undergoing refinement, with Musk expressing concerns over its thickness. He took to Twitter to inform users about the ongoing logo development process and assured them that the final logo would be launched in due course.
New Video Download Feature for Verified Users: Verified users on X have reason to celebrate as they now have access to a brand-new feature: video downloads. Previously, X lacked the option to download videos directly from the platform, forcing users to resort to third-party websites and applications. With Musk’s latest update, this feature is exclusively available to iOS users for now, but Android and web users can expect to receive it shortly.
Controlling Video Downloads: To maintain privacy and control over their videos, users can choose to disable the download option after uploading a video. This setting allows content creators to prevent others from downloading their videos. Additionally, to safeguard young users, individuals below 18 years of age are restricted from utilizing the video download feature.
Privacy Settings and Shared Links: The privacy settings on X play a crucial role in determining who can view and download videos. For users with private accounts, only their followers have access to video content. However, it’s important to note that if followers share the video link externally, anyone with the link can view and download the video, as shared links on X are currently unprotected.
How to Download Videos on X: To download videos on X, users need to follow a simple process. The download option is available for videos uploaded after July 25. By clicking on the three dots located in the top right corner of the video, a menu will appear, offering the “download” option. This feature enables users to save videos directly to their devices for offline viewing.
