Twitter recently launched its audio chat room feature called Spaces for Android and desktop. While it’s easier than ever to join a Space, finding new Spaces is still a mess. Twitter seems to be working on creating an easy way to find, explore, and join Spaces. The company is reportedly redesigning its app. There will soon be a new dedicated tab for Twitter Spaces. The new user interface is to be tested for iOS users. Twitter Spaces gets the middle place in the navigation bar below, which then houses five instead of the regular four tabs.
According to a Techcrunch report, Twitter is updating its app to include the Spaces audio chat room feature in the navigation bar. It’s in the middle between the search magnifier and the notification bell icons. As a reminder, the layout was first discovered last month by reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong (@wongmjane).
The report goes on to say that initially only 500 users who were part of the Twitter Spaces beta program will receive the new feature. The rollout started on June 3rd. After the beta test is over, Twitter will roll out the new Spaces discovery tab on a broader scale.
The report goes on to say that you will no longer see Spaces at the top of the timeline that shows fleets. Instead, you get the Spaces Discovery tab, which is more visual, similar to the promotional cards that appear when tweeting about Spaces. Twitter is said to have changed the way Spaces can be discovered in its app because live events are difficult to follow.
You can view active Spaces in more detail on the Spaces tab. It contains details such as names of spaces, hosts, and attendees that a user follows. In addition, you can set up reminders for planned spaces so that Twitter can notify users about them.
