Microblogging platform Twitter announced on December 18 that its audio chat rooms beta test is now live. Announcing “we’re live,” Twitter introduced a brand new feature called “Spaces” that would allow users to share audio clips in tweets as well as direct messages. Users of the social media website will not only allow users to create their own rooms for others to join, but will also allow control of who can speak in their own “Spaces”. Regarding the new feature, Twitter said it was a “small experiment focused on the intimacy of the human voice”

“Audio adds an extra layer of connection to the public conversation. Musicians and writers have used it to bring their works to life, while other people have used audio to tell stories, share emotions and be their real fun selves, ”Twitter said. “We also know that people want to feel comfortable and in control when having conversations on Twitter.”

“Spaces” came online after Twitter announced last month that it would begin testing the voice chat room with its main group of topics, including women and people from marginalized groups. As recently as last week, the microblogging platform announced that “Spaces” would begin working among its first threads which will also be Twitter’s DM comment group. Twitter Spaces also offers a range of other features in the testing phase, including hand gestures, live transcriptions, blocks and reports, as well as the ability to share tweets.

Describing the feature, Twitter also said, “The human voice can bring a layer of connectivity to Twitter through the emotion, nuance and empathy often lost in text. we see it with voice tweets and voice DMs. sometimes 280 is not enough, and the voice gives people another way to join the conversation.
