If you routinely host a Twitter Spaces room but were irritated because you couldn’t save it for later use, Twitter has some good news for you.
Twitter released the Spaces feature in 2020, which allowed you to converse with people about any subject in a virtual room while your followers could listen in, akin to a live podcast. It’s accessible on iOS and Android, where you may find it in the navigation bar or at the top of the app if a follower is hosting one (access to Spaces when using Twitter in a web browser is still in development).
However, after you finished hosting a Spaces session, there was no option to save the conversation as a file and post it to a podcast feed for people who may have missed the debate.
When you’re preparing to talk, there will soon be a ‘Record Spaces’ option. When you’re done with the Space, Twitter will keep it for 30 days, or you may download it as an audio file, which offers you a world of possibilities. Another step forward for Twitter Podcasts
Spaces’ obvious next step is to have a local audio file. With applications like Clubhouse providing comparable services but lately falling out of favour, Twitter has a chance to make its own stamp by delivering Spaces as podcasts.
While the firm is experimenting Ticketed Spaces, which allows users to pay for admission to Spaces in order to listen or contribute to the discussion, converting Spaces to an audio file may make the process of generating a podcast much simpler for new users.

Spaces provide a simple method to have a discussion on a certain subject without having to set up Skype or Zoom, albeit you would still need to record the chat using another tool. With the addition of recording, spaces can shorten these stages even more, but it also lowers the barrier for anybody on the social networking platform to take their hand at podcasting about their favourite subject.
Users have the ability to become speakers and leaders of their own Twitter Spaces. They may be motivated to organise their own Spaces to discuss other things that they are interested in while meeting new followers who share their enthusiasm.
This alone presents a significant potential for Twitter and might pave the way for Spaces to become a terrific platform for its own curated podcast collection. However, for many users, it may go some way toward making the platform enjoyable — and actually helpful – again.
