In October, Twitter rolled out an update that allowed hosts of Spaces chats to record and share their broadcasts. With the ability to record Spaces and share them across the platform, hosts are able to get more listeners to their broadcasts and the listeners are also able to access the recording at their preferred time. As of now, the feature was only available to Spaces hosts on iOS and all listeners on iOS and Android platforms but now the company has announced that it is expanding the feature to more users.
As per the company’s latest announcement, the option to record a Space is available for some hosts on iOS and Android but the option to listen to a recording of a Space is available for all users. The company announced about the update in reply to the Tweet in which it revealed about the feature. “Some updates on recorded Spaces: The option to record a Space is available for some hosts on both iOS and Android. The option to listen to a recording of a Space is available for everyone on iOS, Android, and now web!” the platform shared.
To create a Spaces Recording, hosts need to toggle on ‘Record Space’ prior to launching a new Space. All participants will see a recording icon appear when they enter the Space indicating that the Space is being recorded. Once the Space ends, Hosts will have access to the full-length Recording for 30 days after initial broadcast, during which they can share it or Tweet it. Listeners will also have the ability to play back any recorded Space directly from their timeline, as well as share recorded Spaces across their networks.
Hosts can delete a Spaces Recording at any time however, Twitter will still keep a data file of it for a period of 30-120 days in order to check for any abusive or hateful content.
