In October, Twitter Released an update allowing no hosts Spaces Chats to record and share their broadcasts. With the ability to record spaces and share them across platforms, hosts are able to get more listeners for their broadcasts and listeners are also able to access the recordings at their favorite time. Until now, this feature was only available to Spaces Hosts on iOS and all listeners on iOS and Android platforms but now the company has announced that it is expanding this feature to more users.
According to the company’s latest announcement, the option to record space is available for some hosts on iOS and Android but the option to listen to the recording of space is available to all users. The company announced the update in response to a tweet in which it mentioned the feature. “Some Updates on Recorded Locations: The option to record space is available for some hosts on both iOS and Android. The option to listen to a space recording is now available to everyone on iOS, Android and the web! ” Platform shared.
To create a spaces recording, the host needs to toggle on ‘Record Spaces’ before launching a new space. When all participants enter the space a recording icon will appear indicating that space is being recorded. Once the space is exhausted, hosts will have access to the full-length recording for up to 30 days after the initial broadcast, during which they can share or tweet it. Listeners will also have the ability to run any recorded space directly from their timeline, as well as share recorded space on their network.
Hosts can delete Spaces recordings at any time. However, Twitter will still keep its data file for a period of 30-120 days to investigate any offensive or hateful content.
