All iOS, Android, and Web Users Can Now Listen to Previously Recorded Spaces on Twitter
On iOS, Android, and the web, all Twitter users now have the option to listen to a Space recording. In addition, users can now listen to a talk after the live stream has ended, bringing Facebook’s Spaces offering closer to traditional podcasts.
- Over the last few months, Twitter has been expanding and improving its Spaces feature. The social media behemoth recently added the ability for users to share direct links to their Spaces, allowing others to listen to a live audio session without logging into the platform.
- According to Twitter, some hosts will be able to record Spaces on iOS and Android.
- Suppose users are in a Twitter Space that is being recorded. In that case, they will see a “Rec” button at the top of the Space with a red dot next to it, indicating that the recording is in progress.
You Can Now Listen to Spaces without Having to Create a Twitter Account
Users will soon be able to publish direct links to their Spaces on Twitter. This would allow others to listen in on a live audio session without being logged in. According to the social media giant, the new feature is intended for Spaces users who have pals who aren’t on Twitter but still want to listen in on a Space.
Twitter Spaces will now be available to even more people, giving the social media giant a greater opportunity of reaching new users outside of its platform. In addition, Twitter Spaces now has an advantage over competitors like Clubhouse and Facebook’s Live Audio Rooms, thanks to the new feature.
- Over the last few months, Twitter has added several new features to Spaces to make them more user-friendly. On iOS, the business rolled out a Spaces Recording functionality to testers, with a global rollout to come.
- Twitter has just released a Spaces test for Android users, including a dedicated Spaces Tab and an upgrade that makes DM invites more accessible.
- As individuals worldwide were confined to their homes due to the pandemic, live audio became increasingly popular.

- As of now, only iOS users can purchase tickets to Spaces hosted by people who have access to the function.
- Twitter has already said that it will take a 3% cut of Ticketed Spaces earnings from creators.
- Twitter’s Ticketed Spaces would set it apart from its live audio competitors. Listeners can tip speakers or award badges in a live audio area via Clubhouse and Instagram, but advance ticket sales are unavailable.
