You can now listen to recorded Twitter Spaces on iOS, Android and the web

Twitter is now letting all users on iOS, Android and the web listen to recordings of Spaces, which may come in handy for listeners who are late for a live broadcast. This comes after Clubhouse began recording for its audio-only chat rooms in September.

Twitter is also offering "some" hosts the ability to record space on iOS and Android. Previously, only iOS users could listen to and record Spaces.

Hosts can start recording space by toggling on the "Record Space" option. When recording is enabled, a (REC) icon will appear for hosts and participants - listeners will also see the icon, although they will not be displayed in the recording. After the space runs out, hosts can see how many people were in the space and can tweet a link to the recording. The hosts can choose the time when the space also starts playing, allowing the hosts to edit out any silences at the beginning of the recording.

On Twitter's help center, the platform notes that recordings will be publicly available when the recording-enabled space is exhausted. The only way to make a recording private is to delete it. Keep in mind that Twitter withholds recordings for 30 to 120 days to investigate rules violations.

Twitter has been steadily expanding its audio-only chat rooms since the feature's launch in 2020. In September, Twitter began letting hosts add three themes to their space, namely music, gaming and entertainment, giving listeners the ability to find the space. align with their interests. It began launching Ticketed Spaces on iOS for hosts to charge for admission to listeners, and later began offering the Space Accelerator program that provides creators with resources to promote their spaces.
