Twitter announced it would soon begin testing a new social experience on its platforms involving audio-only. Twitter Spaces, as the product is now being called, is launching for private beta testing. During this time, the product will be limited to select individuals, largely from underrepresented backgrounds.
Twitter’s test hopes to discover where issues impacting user safety and comfort can be addressed. The test will run on iOS during the beta, offering the opportunity for users to participate in host-moderated audio conversations between two or more people.
There are two ways to create a Space, one can either press and hold the compose button in the lower right corner of the screen, or one can create a Space through the Fleet creation screen by swiping right.
