Twitter is now allowing all users on iOS, Android, and the web to listen to Spaces recordings, which might be useful for listeners who are late to a live broadcast. This follows the September release of recordings for Clubhouse’s audio-only chat rooms.
Twitter is also allowing “certain” presenters to record Spaces on iOS and Android. Only iOS users could previously listen to and record Spaces.
Hosts can begin recording a Space by clicking the “Record Space” button. When recording is enabled, a (REC) icon appears for the host and participants; listeners will also see the icon, but they will not be included in the recording. After the Space concludes, hosts may check how many people were there and tweet a link to the recording. Hosts may also determine when the Space begins to play, letting them edit out any quiet at the start of the recording.
When a recording-enabled Space expires, recordings will be made public, according to Twitter’s help center. To make a recording private, the only option is to erase it. Keep in mind that Twitter retains recordings for 30 to 120 days in order to investigate rule breaches.
Since the feature’s inception in 2020, Twitter has been steadily extending its audio-only chatrooms. In September, Twitter began allowing presenters to add up to three Topics to their Spaces, such as Music, Gaming, and Entertainment, allowing listeners to identify Spaces that match their interests. It also began offering Ticketed Spaces on iOS, allowing presenters to charge listeners for entrance, and subsequently began offering a Spaces accelerator programme, which offers artists with tools to advertise their Spaces.
