Twitter’s Clubhouse clone Spaces, has just announced a new update—you can now click hashtags and @mentions in title. By this, conversations can now live beyond the Space.
The social audio feature, which was launched to give Clubhouse a run for the money, now makes it easy for anyone who could not join to contribute to a conversation.
What that means is that people can click on your unique hashtag, which then takes them outside the Spaces. It is a small, but useful feature for creators and influencers.
For those who could not join a conversation, clickable hashtag is an excellent addition to enable them offer their views on a given topic.
In more Spaces news, Twitter is working on a new Spaces tab—a button that allows you to join an audio conversation. This has never been a part of the audio feature since it was officially launched not quite long ago. With the button, which is still being tested, you will be able to join an ongoing audio conversation.
Twitter announced that the button is still being tested, and available to only a handful of users now. The microblogging company in one of the tweets announcing the feature, said it wants to make joining an audio conversation in Spaces as “simple as possible.”
Frankly it is tricky and difficult to find Spaces to join on the platform; and it is quite pleasing that Twitter acknowledges this. In one of the tweets, the social media giant said it is “listening” to feedback from its community.
“We know it’s been tricky to find Spaces — the tab comes from discussions with many of you. thank you for the feedback. we’re excited to keep this special energy with our community going. we’re listening and learning as we build together.”
Spaces is Twitter’s response to Clubhouse—an audio only app that is not doing badly for itself. Mindful of Clubhouse’s popularity, Twitter has been working behind the scene to improve its own version of the audio social feature. Adding a tab that allows you to join a conversation or find one without stress will be a brilliant addition.
Twitter is reportedly planning to bring audio chat feature Spaces to the web. This could mean more worries for Clubhouse, and lots to look forward to for users. While Clubhouse has enjoyed some unusual growth in the last few months as a pioneer of an audio chat platform, the app now has a lot of work to do to ward off competition.
