Twitter spaces for developers

Twitter Spaces, the microblogging platforms’ audio-only chat room feature, will soon also be rolling out for desktops.

A tweet by blogger Jane Manchun Wong has revealed how Twitter Spaces cards will look like for web browsers.

Twitter Spaces has so far been tested on iOS and Android. While there is no timeline on the web browser version, we can expect the feature to enable even those without the Twitter app to join spaces easily.

Similar audio-only platforms are also being developed by Facebook, LinkedIn, Mark Cuban’s Fireside, Slack, and Spotify. Instant messaging app Telegram already rolled out a new update with Voice Chats 2.0 that let an unlimited number of people join an audio chat.

Reports of Twitter’s own iteration of the audio-only chat rooms for desktops started after Discord’s Stage Channel.
