Twitter launches live audio chat feature, Spaces

Twitter has dived into the spoken word, with its new feature: Spaces. The feature has launched and is available around the world on iOS, Android, and the web, allowing users to host audio chats with an audience.

What is a Twitter Space?

Twitter Spaces has been compared to Discord’s voice chat and Clubhouse as a means of hosting a live public audio chat that is hosted from one account but can be watched and contributed to by anyone via the live chat. Hosts can add a co-host, making for an event akin to a live podcast, and there is also the ability to schedule in a Space for an audience to tune into.
As of December 2021, there have already been upgrades announced to the feature, which allows viewers who are late to a Spaces live broadcast to record the event and listen at a later point.

The feature will be a great asset to brands and influencers, who are already using similar live audio platforms to engage with their audience.
