Use Twitter spaces to create and join audio chats on Android, iOS
Twitter Spaces is very similar to its popular rival Clubhouse. It allows you to create or join audio chat rooms to listen and talk to other people around the world in real time.
The rooms are public and anyone on the platform, including those who are not following you, can join you to listen to the speakers. You can invite up to 10 speakers to your space by tweeting or sharing your link. There is no limit to listeners.
Currently, Twitter spaces are being tested on Android and iOS. Initially it was available in beta for iOS, but has now spread to some Android users. If you received it on your phone, follow the given guide to create and join Twitter spaces.

- You can also join a shared Twitter space via tweets by tapping the purple box in the tweet.
Once you’ve signed up, you can choose to stay tuned or get approval from the host to speak in the session. While listening, you can use emoji reactions to react during audio chat – emoji will appear on your avatar.
How to find Twitter spaces
Twitter may soon have a dedicated Spaces tab where you can likely search for and discover Spaces.
However, for now, an easy way to find Spaces links on Twitter is to hit the search bar and type “twitter.com/i/spaces. It will then show you all the tweets with links to spaces. You can also find links to Twitter spaces through the third-party site Twitterspaces.global.
End the Twitter space
Once you have completed the session, you can click on the red colored button Finish button. Then press Yes, end to complete the Space. The session will be over and everyone will be automatically kicked out. If you’ve joined someone else’s space, click the button leave icon in the right corner.
Others will not be able to access the space after the session ends. However, Twitter will keep copies of the audio and captions for 30 days if it needs to review the conversation for any rule violations. During this time, hosts can download a copy of the data from Space, including a transcript (if captions have been enabled).
