Twitter Spaces, the company's new live audio rooms feature, is becoming more widely available. Twitter Spaces will be available to any account with 600 followers or more, including iOS and Android users, the company announced today.
It also officially unveiled some of the features it plans to launch, such as Ticketed Spaces, scheduling features, reminders, co-hosting support, accessibility enhancements, and more.
Twitter is increasing the visibility of Spaces on its platform. The company has begun testing the ability to find and join a Space from the Home timeline by clicking on a purple bubble around someone's profile picture.
Twitter says it chose 600 followers as the minimum to gain access to Twitter Spaces based on the previous testing. Accounts with 600 or more followers have a “better experience” hosting live conversations because they have a larger existing audience that can tune in.
Multiple co-hosts will be supported in Twitter Spaces soon, and creators will be able to better market and even charge for access to their live events on Twitter Spaces. One feature that will be available in the coming weeks will allow users to schedule and set reminders for Spaces they don't want to miss.
Clubhouse, Twitter Spaces' competitor, also announced a reminders feature during its town hall event on Sunday, as well as the start of its external Android testing. The two platforms appear to be on a collision course in terms of feature set.
However, while Clubhouse recently introduced an in-app donation feature to support favorite creators, Twitter will soon introduce a more traditional method of generating revenue from live events: ticket sales.
