Spaces' host, Alex, who goes by the username @akkhosh on the micro-blogging site said that their vision of going live with Spaces will come to fruition sometime in April. The timeline is certainly not the final one.

A Twitter spokesperson further clarified to TechCrunch that Alex was indeed referring to all the users of iOS and Android and not just beta testers getting the ability to host Spaces.

Twitter has been working on the voice tweets since last year. The feature to voice tweet for iOS was rolled out in June, 2020. While composing a tweet, users will have to click on the wavelength option given beside the image icon to record a message. One voice tweet could be of maximum 140 seconds and if users need to say more than that, they can just continue speaking and Twitter will be starting another voice message once 140 seconds have passed.

The success of Clubhouse after being launched in August 2020, has not gone unnoticed. While Twitter is developing the audio chat room feature, Instagram is also working on including an audio chat room option in the direct messaging section of the app.
