Twitter has recently made Spaces accessible from the web. This is a major step for Twitter because with web access, Spaces will be available to even more users. However, Spaces for Web requires that the user’s speakers and microphones of their PCs or desktop work perfectly.

On the web version of Spaces, the users will first get a preview of Spaces, showing the people speaking and in attendance. If the user chooses to join, the window will then reduce itself to the right-hand side of the Twitter presentation screen. It will also enable the user to keep scrolling on the Twitter timeline as they continue to listen to the people hosting Spaces.

Spaces for the web also comes with the ‘enable captions’ option, and the user can also turn it on to follow the conversation in written format. A speaker panel below the main screen will highlight whose voice the user is hearing.

This will be perhaps the biggest competition and rival to Clubhouse. The Clubhouse is still working on an invite-only basis, whereas Spaces is now available to everyone with over 600 followers in the app, across mobile and web. Although Clubhouse perhaps needs to refocus on its specific usages so that it can bypass the competition, it still remains the platform with the biggest followers that will eventually win.

However, having said that, it should be kept in mind that it was Clubhouse that introduced the audio, social trend. But Twitter is leveraging that trend to the fullest. This could significantly alter Twitter usage in the upcoming Q2 report. The social media platform also needs to turn its attention to Spaces discovery so that it reaches maximum usages.

Spaces for desktop is being rolled out from today in all regions.
