Twitter Revamps Its ‘Spaces’ With Better Audio Tools And Management To Maximize Listenership

While many people may not see the potential of Twitter's Spaces, the company has major plans of revamping the functionality with some innovative options.

The company recently unveiled a list of audio tools and great management functionalities whose main role is to make the most of listenership, thanks to the great potential that this domain contains.

Therefore, that’s one of the many reasons why Twitter refuses to back down in terms of introducing new elements that it feels can help lure more users to make use of the Spaces Tab. This includes the chance to make the most of listenership amid a series of audio broadcasts.

This week, we saw the firm bring to light another round of updates in this regard, which included some permanent recordings which used to be sent to the bin after just one month. In addition to that, users will get the chance to save their recordings after conducting a broadcast, while a number of details can be viewed in the program’s Space Bar which is located at the app’s top.

First things first, the permanent recordings update is being launched to help extend the lifespan above the one-month period. This will end up giving more capacity so more and more listeners can benefit over time while keeping conversations lively and up to date on the platform.

Other than that, users can expect to see new lists of Recorded Spaces that are seen on your settings menu. Here is where you get the chance to play back every session, get rid of things you’d like to trash, and also share any audio content on the list.


As you can probably guess, the end result is bringing up the value of these chats, adding a more ‘podcast’ like vibe to the project. We also see this as a great chance to better your ongoing marketing and also make the most of audience building. These do appear to be some of the tactics once used by Clubhouse to make the app appealing.

Clearly, we see Twitter achieving the Podcast angle that’s simply based upon this example screen that can be found towards the app’s back.

But wait, the list of innovative elements isn’t just over yet as the company recently announced how it’s working on creating stations on the Spaces Tab. Users can now add podcasts to their audio streams so they’re given the chance to tune in attentively to audio content on an app.

We can see how this would add greater value to the app’s audio content and assist in converting regular content into a more profitable endeavor. But the real mystery over here is related to how much demand would Twitter Podcasts really have, at the end of the day.

Remember, we’ve already been blessed with podcasts from Apple as well as Spotify, not to mention a number of other great options present.

While some may find the update a little bit unnecessary, we’re going to disagree. There’s always room for improvement and if that means bettering audio tools to get Spaces up and running, then so be it.

On the other hand, we have more news about Twitter allowing iPhone users the chance to continue recording a Space, after a particular broadcast has ended. Hence, if you forgot to press Record, there’s nothing to worry about.

A lot of people might be wondering why Twitter never chose to introduce such elements at the start. Well, one reason may be related to the great amount of data storage necessary.

Lastly, Twitter has also mentioned its desire to present more details across the Spaces Bar that’s present on Android. This way, users get further insights while scrolling like what is being talked about, who is hosting, and who shared a Tweet across a chat as well.
