Spaces Twitter is testing a new clipping tool

Twitter has begun testing a new clipping tool for its Live Spaces feature, the company announced this week.

Hosts selected via iOS can now clip 30 seconds of audio from recorded spaces to share with others on Twitter.

All iOS users can now watch and listen to clips within the timeline, while Android and web users will soon have access.

The company also plans to roll out the clipping functionality to all users in future, not just to hosts.

30 days

“There is no limit to the number of audio clips that can be created. They stay on the platform for 30 days,” a Twitter spokesperson said, adding that “currently everyone on iOS can watch and listen to Spaces clips on their timeline.” .

He also explained: “Even people via Android and version web they get the feature, “noting,” We are monitoring comments and plan to extend the clipping functionality to everyone on Twitter in the near future. “

Increase interest in space

The hosts are in able to create audio clips from the recorded spaces which can be shared via a tweet and which also link to the complete recording.


The new tool also represents a way for hosts to increase interest in spaces by highlighting specific parts of a broadcast without having to share an entire recording.

Many features

Clubhouse, the app of social audio that prompted the launch of Spaces, launched the crop feature last September.

This feature allows live listeners in public rooms to clip the last 30 seconds of audio and share it anywhere. It can also be shared on other platforms of social media.

Interestingly, Twitter has brought a lot of features into the Live Voice Rooms spaces over the past few months to promote the product. The company is working on Spaces Recordings, a feature that allows hosts to share tweets with audio recordings from past spaces.


Know the number of listeners

At the beginning of quest’year, the company offered hosts sharing the recorded spaces the opportunity to see how many listeners had joined the broadcast in live and how many people had replayed the recording at the end of the session.

Live audio has also become popular during the pandemic since the people in all over the world have been confined to their homes.

However, with the lifting of restrictions in many countries and the return of in-person events, companies offering features for live audio rooms like Twitter and Clubhouse are trying to keep users by launching new features.
