Twitter is rolling out new updates for Spaces. Spaces is an audio chat service by the microblogging site. It allows users to host live audio chats. The company said that Spaces will soon get more options. This includes new rules for participants and also an option for replay in a live conversation. At present, the features are under development. The features were recently discovered in Twitter’s code. Twitter Spaces is likely to get four new options. The options will give more control to hosts over the audio chat room. Twitter also wants a proper set of rules to be in place for those using Spaces services.
Twitter has hinted that the new rules will have a separate section for hosts. They can use this section to define what content the participants can and cannot say during the live chat on Spaces. Twitter is also developing a block option. This will allow users to restrict some users from joining a live chat. They can limit the conversation to certain users. This will help them to filter a specific group of users. Twitter will also add a replay feature. It will allow users to check the duration of a conversation and also see the participants.
Notably, Twitter has no replay-like feature currently. It doesn’t allow users to listen to a conversation again. A user can join Spaces only when the conversation is lively. Twitter will make the replay an optional feature. When the replay is enabled, users will be able to check how long the chat lasted and the list of participants. Twitter has been updating its audio chat service consistently. It projects Spaces as a competitor to Clubhouse. The Clubhouse was launched in April 2020 and Twitter Spaces in November. It is a platform that is based on voice. Users can talk and listen in real-time. Twitter allows accounts with a minimum of 600 followers to host an audio conversation. Twitter recently rolled out a web version of Spaces on the desktop and mobile. Twitter Spaces was earlier available via apps on iOS and Android.
