Hosts of Twitter Spaces can now record and share their broadcasts, according to Twitter. The feature is currently being rolled out to a small number of Twitter Spaces hosts on iOS, with the rest of the hosts getting it “within a few weeks.” Hosts will use this feature to record a Twitter Spaces chat and then tweet the recording.
If a host has allowed recording, anyone who was late to a Twitter Spaces broadcast will now be able to replay the broadcast once it has completed. As a result, tweets that traditionally advertise Twitter Spaces broadcasts will instead include a link to a recording instead of the usual ‘Space ended’ note that appears.
When new partcipants join a live Twitter Spaces broadcast, they will be notified with a new symbol indicating a recording is taking place. Hosts will have access to recordings for 30 days after the broadcast for sharing purposes, or they can delete them at any time. According to Twitter, recordings will be kept for up to 120 days to check for any rude or hostile content.
The new recording feature arrives less than a week after Twitter made Spaces available to all iOS and Android users. Twitter is also experimenting with a new Spaces tab for its Clubhouse competitor, as well as creating a fund for creators and piloting ticketed Spaces audio rooms.
