Twitter is keeping on investing in voice with new features to make Spaces easier to discover and share.
Twitter has announced the rollout of several new features that will boost awareness and engagement on its live audio tool – Spaces. Starting this week, users listening in on a Spaces audio chat can tweet directly from within the Space itself.
An icon at the bottom left of the screen allows for the specific Space hashtag to automatically populate a new Tweet, to send out and share the chat the attendee is listening to. This can be selected at any given time during the audio chat, without requiring the user to leave the chat to compose the Tweet – nor have to copy and paste links.
The new automatically-generated tweet will include both the relevant hashtag and Space link, making it easier to quickly share the broadcast with one’s followers without interruptions. According to Twitter’s announcement, the new option is already available on both iOS and Android.
Furthermore, Twitter is also improving the discovery of Spaces by adding new search options within the Spaces tab. The new feature is currently being tested with some users who already have access to the Spaces tab, currently in limited beta, allowing them to use the new search options to discover Spaces that are relevant to them.
in our pursuit to make it easier to find Spaces of interest, folks on the Tab beta will now be able to search for live and upcoming Spaces by title, host name and host handle on iOS. Making all live and upcoming Spaces searchable. pic.twitter.com/6fApOAbcVm

The possibility to highlight relevant Spaces in discovery based on each user’s interests will play a big role in maximizing the growth of Spaces within the platform.
As Twitter retires Fleets, there could also be a chance that the platform will highlight Spaces along the top of the home screen where Fleets used to be. In addition, the social media platform has also added a control bar for Spaces participants to access on top of the guest management page.
The new design layout will certainly improve the way Spaces hosts are able to see participating guests.
