Soon, Spaces, Twitter’s very own audio chat feature, may not look like it does now. As TechCrunch first reported and Twitter itself later confirmed to the site, the social media is working on a new, completely revamped version of Spaces with new features.
Unfortunately, Twitter hasn’t released any official information about the future appearance of Spaces, but an intelligence agency called Watchful managed to snap some early screenshots of the new design. However, we should note here that Twitter has stressed TechCrunch that these images are at a very early stage of the new look and are “inaccurate and outdated”. Even so, we might still be able to get an idea of what the new Spaces might look like.
From Watchful’s images, we can see that the audio rooms are likely to be arranged by subject, such as music and sports. In addition, we can see that they are represented by colorful maps and illustrations created for the programs. Furthermore, it appears that Spaces may also be getting a new feature called “Your Daily Recap”, which will likely show you new episodes of the shows you follow. And, as is the case now, the tab will probably also show who is listening.
Twitter introduced Spaces in November 2020, in an effort to compete with Clubhouse, which had just become hugely popular. At first they looked promising, but now it seems that Spaces and audio rooms as a whole are slowly dying out. This is probably why Twitter decided to completely revamp Spaces. To try and spark the interest that the audio rooms once enjoyed.
