Twitter has announced that it is testing a new audio clips feature for its ever-expanding Twitter Spaces platform in its iOS app. This new feature will be a tool for hosts to use for capturing a moment during the conversations.
The San Francisco-based micro-blogging platform has announced in a tweet that the new feature will enable hosts of Twitter Spaces to clip 30 seconds of audio as a way to share some of the conversations on the timeline.
The company is saying that the new feature can be accessed on iOS when scrolling down in the timeline, in addition to rolling out to Android users alongside the web “real soon” – Twitter plans.
“ever wish you could capture a moment from a Space? great because we’re testing clipping! certain Hosts on iOS can now clip 30 seconds of audio from recorded Spaces to share, everyone on iOS can see & listen to clips on the Timeline—coming to Android and web real soon.”
A Twitter spokesperson spoke to TechCrunch and added that Audio Clips will stay in users’ timeline for 30 days:
“There is no limit to the number of audio clips that can be created, and they will live on the platform for 30 days. Currently, everyone on iOS can see and listen to Spaces clips on their Timeline, and soon people on Android and Twitter.com will receive access too. We will be monitoring feedback and plan to expand Spaces clipping functionality to everyone on Twitter in the near future.”
Twitter has been adding new features to its app for some time now, especially for its growing Spaces section. The company acquired the business chatting platform Quill presumably to improve its direct messages section and expanded its Saftey Mode feature to the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland.
