With a new podcast function for Twitter Spaces, you can listen to entire programs and episodes in the app and create playlists.
Twitter users can test a new podcast feature in Twitter Spaces. There you should be able to listen to your own programs and create playlists. Twitter now calls the redesign of the audio section Stations. As “personalized hubs”, content can be grouped according to topic, podcasts can be accessed live and recorded. Twitter also wants to make suggestions based on interest and usage behavior, say hearts. Thumbs up or down to improve the suggestions.
The podcasts are initially only available in the US. A tweet from Evan Jones, product manager at Twitter Spaces, explains that if you set your smartphone to English in the settings, you should already be able to get the function. In response to the criticism that since the introduction there has been no possibility of finding live Spaces via the search, Jones follows up with the tip to go via ‘filter:Spaces’. “By adding podcats to Twitter, we made them social – which means the possibilities are now endless,” he writes. The hope is that more people will speak out publicly.
More creators on Twitter
In the announcement of Twitter says, “We know that some discussions are longer than 280 characters, and it’s a core concern of Twitter to bring people closer to the ideas and creators they know and love, no matter where the conversations take place.” It also states that they will continue to “invest” in audio creators. The new hub promotes the world’s most popular podcasts. The originally pure short message service only recently made it possible for official accounts to sell products via Twitter. In the future, Twitter users will also be able to offer exclusive tweets and conversations with a monthly subscription. With Tip Jar, users can give or receive tips.
The new Spaces tab including podcasts is available in the apps for iOS and Android if the settings are in English. It is not yet known when the function will be available worldwide.
Spaces instead of clubhouses
Twitter introduced Spaces when the big copy run on the Clubhouse app started. Since then, not much has been heard of the supposed original. Spaces, on the other hand, has undergone some changes and advancements. The conversations can be recorded and listened to without a Twitter account.
