Since the end of last year, Twitter has finally made public its voice chat room feature called Spaces, which it has tested with a limited number of user groups.
Social media giant Twitter has finally officially launched its voice chat room feature, which it has been testing for some time. Spaces, developed as an alternative to Clubhouse, are now available in iOS and Android apps.
Twitter Spaces allows its users to communicate with each other on a variety of topics by creating voice chat rooms. Account-holders who currently have 600 or more followers can create a voice chat room on Twitter.

Twitter users will be notified when someone they follow opens a chat room. It will appear as a purple balloon at the top of the timeline. Listeners will be able to respond to the speaker’s words with an emoji or request to speak.
The company plans to develop Spaces’ capabilities in the future. In the meantime, the voice chat room feature has been tested since December last year. During this time, the feature was only available to a limited number of Twitter users.
