Twitter Spaces is now available on web browser
Twitter has announced something that a lot of people will be happy to hear. Effective today, Twitter Spaces is now available on the mobile web and desktop web versions of Twitter. The social network says its favorite areas were infrastructure and a user interface capable of adapting to the user’s screen size.
Using Twitter Spaces, users can set reminders for scheduled spaces and take advantage of new accessibility and transcription options. Some of the main features of Twitter Spaces include the ability to display a web preview of the space before people join. Users see a description of the space and a button to “Join Space” below.
Another shared image shows a web view of space on the right side of the browser with transcriptions enabled. With transcripts enabled, users get a preview of some of the conversations taking place in the space. Today’s announcement that Twitter Spaces is rolling out for everyone isn’t the first time we’ve heard of the service. In May of this year, Twitter Spaces first appeared, but was only available to users with high subscribers.
Users initially needed 600 subscribers to justify making the Spaces feature available. Twitter said of the need to have at least 600 subscribers, “these accounts are likely to have a good experience of hosting live conversations due to their existing audience.”
Spaces classifies users into hosts, speakers, and participants. Participants are muted by default and can only react using emojis, but can request the ability to speak. Twitter has a built-in system for managing accounts that users have blocked, providing a notification tag when you join a space where someone you’ve blocked is a speaker.
