With the race now underway for supremacy in the social podcast space, it is on a company Twitter is rapidly developing its Spaces audio tool.
The company is adding new features and tools for users in the initial test suite, and is looking to add more users to the expanded beta group.
And the Spaces audio tool may be of greater benefit soon, as Explained Twitter Product Manager Kayvon Beykpour said they are looking to add an option that will enable users to register and reuse Spaces.
The company plans to build a method for recording conversations authentically, he said, “That option should be there, and in case you thought the conversation was worth staying, then you should be able to do so.”
He added: Obviously, the host should be able to save what he wants, maybe host Spaces, save them, and then want to modify them, and you have to be able to do that.
Bikpour also acknowledged that there is an additional complexity here, with regard to multiple participants, and obtaining approval for reuse from all speakers.
The idea of recording and sharing clips gets more complicated when participants want to share audio without the host’s explicit consent, and I also think the idea of letting the audience choose the audio footage and share it as clips can be important.
But it looks like this will be an option soon, which might give Spaces more of a feel for podcasts, and could add new content options for those looking to get the most out of Spaces’ efforts.
This could allow Spaces to gain another advantage to rival the Clubhouse platform, which is expanding rapidly, and is now in direct competition with Twitter as Spaces continue to gain.
It’s also worth noting that Twitter is currently recording Spaces’ conversations, which they keep for 30 days for moderation purposes.
On the other hand, Twitter is developing a new shared hosting option for Spaces, which would provide another way to manage your live discussions.
Through the ability to co-host and record audio conversations, this could open up a host of additional content possibilities, which could add more value to Twitter’s audio tool, and make it more attractive to brands and marketers.
