The social media site Twitter launched its live audio chat Spaces first in November 2020. It was Twitter’s attempt to eclipse the success of the widely popular live audio chat feature Clubhouse. When Twitter introduced its audio-centric chatrooms, its ability to host live audio chats was limited to about 600 users.
Twitter All Set to fulfill its Promise
Now, the social media site is all set to provide the opportunity to its users to host Twitter Spaces. This privilege should have been granted long ago. Twitter is almost close to fulfilling the promise that it made to its users. Twitter had promised its users that they could participate in Space in April.
The Twitter Spaces team has announced through a tweet that it has allowed Android and iOS users to host Spaces. Also, the team has offered a GIF that describes the overall procedure on how users can host Twitter Spaces. If you have forgotten how to use Twitter Spaces, it can help you.
Twitter Spaces is Packed with a Slew of Features
Twitter has made various innovations over the years for Twitter Spaces. As a result, it has released a slew of advanced features for its live audio chat feature. For example, it has introduced an added co-host feature for Twitter Spaces users. The users can designate up to two co-hosts for their live audio rooms. Moreover, it will help the Twitter Spaces hosts to moderate and manage conversations. Plus, it allows up to 10 speakers to join the live audio chat.
Once the Twitter Spaces host designates the co-hosts, the co-hosts will get the same managing and moderation privileges as the Twitter Spaces primary host. Co-hosts can speak, invite other members to speak, pin tweets, and more.
Some Other Twitter Spaces Feature
Twitter launched the Twitter Spaces Spark program to discover and reward Spaces creators with marketing, financial and technical support. It’s required that you be 18 years old and have more than 5,000 active followers to be eligible for the program. Plus, you will have to commit to hosting a minimum of Two Spaces every week.
Apart from these, the social media site has also introduced Ticketed Spaces. It is a paid live audio room that the company first rolled out to all interested Android and iOS users in June. Clubhouse introduced its invite-only state in July. Now, mobile users have been playing around with this live audio chat app to date.
When talking about Twitter Spaces, the social media site is lifting all the restrictions on hosting rights and privileges. Amidst all these, Twitter may miss some critical windows that can attract more and more users to use this live audio chat.
Overall, time will decide the future of Twitter Spaces. If the Spaces grows with time and gets more and more users, it may leave Clubhouse far behind. But there is also a chance that it may meet with the same fate as the Stories-like Fleets.
