Twitter will open Spaces, its version of Clubhouse to all users in April. For the time being, it has released an update that will allow us to join pre-established audio rooms.
iOS and Android users worldwide woke up surprised to see an update in the Twitter app. The update, according to the descriptions in the App Store and Google Play Store, introduces Spaces, the audio rooms feature similar to the Clubhouse proposal. No, it’s not available for now, even though it recently expanded to Android users.
So what’s going on? This update is the stepping stone, according to Twitter, to launch Spaces to all users in April. That’s how Twitter itself related it in one of these audio rooms, explaining that both iOS and Android users will be able to create their rooms within a month.
For now, users who can create these rooms are the lucky few who have received the feature in beta form. The rest of us with this update will be able to join precisely these rooms, so we will be limited until the final update arrives in a few weeks for everyone.
The idea is that Twitter will have Spaces ready so that when it is launched in April it will be ready for all users. If you find an active Spaces room, you will be able to join, but these are very rare as they are enabled for very few users of the application.
However, if you can create a room, take advantage of it as you will be one of the very few lucky users who will be able to try it out. The operation is very similar to that of Clubhouse; Audio rooms in which Internet users can chat with each other with live audio, simply and easily.
There is no definite date for the launch of the new feature beyond stating that it would be launched in April. Given the hurry that Twitter itself is having to have it available as soon as possible, it should arrive early next month.
‘Rooms’ comes after the launch of Super Follows, a ‘paid Twitter‘ that will allow users of the social network to subscribe to their favorite profiles through payments and access tweets and exclusive content, something similar to what happens with OnlyFans or Patreon.
