From Wednesday, the company announced, making the company’s social audio rooms much more accessible. Previously, you could only join Spaces from Twitter’s iOS and Android apps.
You can see in the screenshots below what a Spaces looks like on the internet, from Twitter. The image on the left shows what you see before joining a Space. The image on the right shows a space on the side so you can keep scrolling through Twitter while you listen.
Spaces are making their way to Twitter for the web!
Now you can join a Space to listen in, try out the new transcription design, and set reminders to join a scheduled Space. https://t.co/xFTEeAgM4x

Spaces on the web have one big caveat, though: You can join Spaces, but you can’t host them yourself just yet, a Twitter spokesperson confirmed. The edge.
Twitter has quickly opened Spaces and added features in recent months to compete with the dedicated social audio app Clubhouse and similar features from companies like Discord and Facebook. In early May, Twitter began rolling out the ability to host spaces on mobile devices for anyone with 600 or more followers.
