Twitter to Make 'Spaces' Chat Feature Available to Everyone in April

Twitter today updated its official Twitter app with a mention of the launch of "Spaces," its chat room feature that's similar to popular social networking app Clubhouse, but Spaces isn't quite ready to launch.

Twitter Feature
In a Twitter Space hosted by the company this morning, Twitter said (via The Verge) that it is aiming to make Spaces available for everyone starting in April.

With Spaces, Twitter offers users public chat rooms that users can create or join. The host who created the Space has speaking privileges to talk to those who join, and can designate up to nine other speakers.

While there's a maximum of 10 speakers allowed, there's no limit on the number of listeners who can join a given Space. Spaces has been available in a beta capacity on iOS and Android devices, and creating Spaces is limited to a select number of people who have been selected to beta test the feature in the iOS app.

All iOS and Android users can join an existing Space that has been created by someone in the beta, it's just the creation process that's limited at the current time.

I got to test this in beta form. It's definitely something that looks like will expand like a "Live Podcast" feature. The audio quality is also better than Clubhouse. The peeps at Twitter did an awesome job with this!

I’ve never used Clubhouse. Seems like a fad that’s hot with people in media but you won’t hear about a few months from now.

I agree with you. Clubhouse is an audio-only chat program for iPhone only? Zoom and Teams already have video chat, and guess what? You can turn off the video and do audio only already! Discord has had audio chat rooms for years, used by gamers everywhere to organize WoW raids. Heck, in the olden days, there were phone party lines you could call.

Clubhouse is not original. The name kind of tells you what they are trying to sell it as: a “hangout” for the cool kids. No thanks. They should try to sell the company ASAP because users will soon realize it brings nothing new to the table.
