Twitter is reportedly working on the ability to allow users to participate in audio conversations through the web application. Support for users to join Spaces via the web was introduced in May and now the company is also working on allowing people to speak via the web application. Currently, the ability to speak in spaces is only available on Twitter’s iOS and Android apps, but this ability is likely to be expanded in the future. After being in beta for a while, Twitter Spaces was introduced a few months ago for anyone with 600+ followers.
Developer Nima Owji tweeted Thursday as the social networking platform is working on introducing the ability to talk when you join a Twitter space using the web app. The developer attached screenshots to build on their claim, but says they had to host a space using their phone and then joined using the web app. Owji said he couldn’t host the app using the web app directly.
In February, the company brought spaces like its live audio chat platform similar to Clubhouse to expand its footprint in audio and voice. He reached the Web application in May and is accessible from Twitter.com on mobile devices and desktops. However, some functionality is limited to mobile apps only, but Twitter is actively working on bringing more to the web app, including the ability to speak in a space.
The voice chat feature allows Twitter users to create live rooms with up to 10 people talking, and an unlimited number of people can join to listen. With Spaces, Twitter expects to “create conversations on the platform with the authenticity and nuance, depth and power that only the human voice can bring.” On the web, a preview of the Space conversation appears in a pop-up window before joining it. It will contain a description and some details about the participants available in the conversation. Twitter also allows users to continue browsing while listening to a Space conversation.
