Twitter Spaces audio rooms now available on desktop, mobile browsers

27 May 2021 0

Twitter Spaces audio rooms are now finally available on web browsers on a desktop or mobile phone. These rooms debuted earlier this year as the company's way of taking on Clubhouse, the app that made audio rooms popular. These were restricted to Android and iOS applications so far but have now been made more widely accessible.

A major difference is that while users will be able to join Spaces through browsers, they will not be able to host rooms. Twitter has not explained the reason behind the restriction but smartphone apps are the only way to host rooms for now. If there is a Spaces room that has been scheduled for the future, you can set reminders for them directly from the browser.

Before joining any room, Twitter will show you the room's name and description. It will also show a list of all the speakers and listeners in the room. This will help users decide whether a particular room is worth their time. The pop-up also clarifies that the user's mic will be turned off by default.

The interface for the joined room is a small pop-up on the right side. This will ensure that users can keep browsing their Twitter timeline while listening to conversations happening in the room.


Twitter has been working extensively on the growth of Spaces. It recently announced Ticketed Spaces for users that will allow room hosts to charge a fee from attendees. It is currently accessible only to United States users but anyone from the world can purchase a ticket to Ticketed Spaces.
