Twitter doesn’t want to confine its social audio offerings to Spaces with a Clubhouse vibe. Podcasts are also being included by the business. Long-running speculations regarding this development have now been formally confirmed by the company, which has been testing the feature. On Thursday, the social network revealed a revamped Spaces category that now includes podcasts.

Twitter groups podcasts into categories such as news, music, sports, and more. Users will be able to quickly find podcasts they might enjoy thanks to this. Users will be able to rate podcasts in order to provide Twitter with more information about their preferences. The business will hide stuff you don’t like and add more of what you do like to the list.

Naturally, Twitter will also utilize more information about how you use the network to ascertain your interests. According to the firm, someone who frequently engages with Vox content on Twitter is likely to encounter a Vox podcast in a Spaces hub. Twitter’s blog post also cites podcasts from Bloomberg, The New York Times, NASA, and other well-known people like Kara Swisher and Scott Galloway in addition to Vox. It seems that Twitter will offer a respectable selection of podcasts.

Advertisement TWITTER WILL PROVIDE SPACES AND PODCASTS UNDER THE SAME TAB In the US, 45 percent of those who use Twitter’s social network platform do so on a regular basis. By including podcasts in the app, the business hopes to keep people using its platform.

In March of this year, it was originally noted that Twitter was developing plans to add podcasts to the service. It will likely have a dedicated page within the main app, according to the initial observation. However, the business chose a different path for its implementation. On Twitter, podcasts and spaces will coexist side by side. The latter allows you to hold real-time audio discussions if you’re unfamiliar. With a limitless audience and up to two more co-hosts, you can establish a Space. The hosts may also suggest up to ten audience members to speak.

Starting this Thursday, August 25, Twitter will begin introducing the updated Spaces tab with integrated podcasts. It will be accessible on Android and iOS apps to a certain range of English-speaking people. Using the testers’ input, the company will expand this integration further. In a few months, if all goes as planned, we might witness a bigger launch of podcasts on Twitter. We’ll provide you with the most recent information regarding this development and keep you informed.
