Twitter takes Clubhouse, the social media of the moment, off guard.
Bring audio chat to Android, a platform where Clubhouse has not yet landed.
After the launch in the test phase in December 2020, Spaces - this is the name of the new Twitter function - was in fact accessible only to some users with the iPhone operating system, iOS.
Now the social network of chirps has started to test the app also on Android, even here you can access by invitation.
With a tweet from the official Spaces profile, Twitter has let Android users know that they will be able to start participating in audio conversations;
unlike Clubhouse, however, members will not be able to create their own 'room' for live voice chats.
Audio Spaces will be part of a project that will allow Twitter users to monetize with their content.
Since Clubhouse began to become popular in January, thanks to the arrival of personalities like Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, many platforms are studying audio modes to be included in their news stream.
In addition to Twitter, according to a New York Times indiscretion a few days ago, Facebook is also working on an audio function.
And Instagram, also owned by Facebook, has recently included the possibility of directing the participants by enlarging the participants to four, with the option of opening 'Rooms' for discussion, a term already adopted by Clubhouse.
