Twitter Spaces Will Soon Let You Manipulate the Sound of Your Voice

Twitter is currently working on a "Voice Transformer" – a voice manipulation feature for Spaces, its live audio conversations service that rolled out to more users in May.

Twitter Feature
"Voice Transformer" will provide several effects for users to change the sound of their voice as they engage in Spaces conversations, which could inject some fun into chats or perhaps be used by people who dislike the sound of their own voice.

First spotted by app researcher Jane Manchun Wong, the feature manipulates voices by adjusting pitch or adding echo. MacRumors contributor Steve Moser subsequently revealed the full list of voice effects that will be available in Spaces. They include Bee, Cartoon, Helium, Incognito, Karaoke, Microphone, Phone, Spatial, Stadium, and Stage.


It's unclear when Voice Transformer will be available to use by the general public who engage in Spaces conversations, but code relating to the feature is already included in the latest version of Twitter for mobile, so it shouldn't be too far away.

Oh God, Hopefully, it's not going to be creepy. It would be cool if you can change your voice and make it sound like Darth Vader or Homer (The Simpson).
Damn, I was hoping for Homer the Greek author.

If your business model solely relies on trolls, of course you need to introduce features to encourage them in voice chat.

Twitter Spaces? What the heck is that
Sounds like the echo chamber wants to create lounge areas where likeminded people can agree they all have the right answer to everything?

I like it. It might allow people in dictatorships to communicate more freely without fear of having their voice identified.

The greatest thing to come out of this feature is the ability to disguise your voice for privacy concerns on Twitter, which is a cesspool of human opinion and an overall data security nightmare.

Not that I have an opinion on the subject. :D

I've said it before, but it is so true. Twitter is the answer to the question many of us asked ourselves when young which is:
"What would it be like to read people's minds?".

I think we can all agree it is not what we as kids, would have hoped it'd be like.
