The microblogging and social networking service, Twitter doesn’t need a description. But there is one more feature that the team introduced for its users called “Twitter Spaces”. To be more clear, the feature allows users to host and participate in live audio conversations, hosted within “Spaces” or audio chat rooms.
Earlier, it was under the Beta testing stage, and only shortlisted users who have enrolled in the Twitter beta program could create their own Spaces. But, anyone using Android or iOS could join and listen in on a Space.
The latest news regarding the trait is that it seems to be having a wider outspread on Android. Still, there are some limitations. Initially, the chat room will only roll out to users with at least 600 followers or above. After ensuring that there is no critical bug left and making sure of a smooth user experience, it will roll out to everyone on the platform.
“Today, we’re bringing the ability to host a Space to all accounts with 600 or more followers on Twitter. Based on what we’ve learned so far, these accounts are likely to have a good experience hosting live conversations because of their existing audience. Before bringing the ability to create a Space to everyone, we’re focused on learning more, making it easier to discover Spaces, and helping people enjoy them with a great audience.” Says Twitter.
If you have 600 or more followers on Twitter, you can create a space for up to 10 speakers by tapping the “Create Tweet” button and select the “Spaces” option at the top of the pop-up FAB.
In order to create your own Space, head to the “Compose” button, you will see an expanded FAB providing ‘Spaces’, ‘Photos’, and ‘GIF’ options. This option is widely available for numerous users that means the wider rollout is on the way.
