Twitter unveiled a new premium subscription service called Twitter Blue on Thursday, paying users in limited regions to send their tweets, read threats more effectively, and organize bookmarks. However, this is not the only change announced by the microblogging platform: the service also updated the Android app to pay special attention to the new Spaces feature.
TechCrunch saw changes to the company’s Twitter app for iOS, which gives the company’s competitor Clubhouse more prominence. When you press and hold the typing button or instead of a small icon that appears in the top bar that shows your fleet, users will see a dedicated Space tab in the bottom navigation bar of the screen.

The company reported that the reason for creating the new tab was to ensure that a user has a dedicated space to find and track Spaces or simply find new ones. Compared to the old system, the new Spaces tab will be popular for users who have joined the Clubhouse, which has evolved the Discovery feature in the last year.
Users who click on the new Spaces tab will be able to see more detailed information about upcoming (scheduled) spaces, including details about currently running Spaces, who the host is, as well as who is participating. It should be noted that although all Twitter users on Android, iOS, and the website can access Twitter spaces, the company only expanded its ability to launch and host Spaces to users with 600 or more followers in May.

However, there is no news when the feature will be extended to all iOS users, the report says, the company only makes 500 users “today” from the Spaces beta test today. This number may increase in the future, but the expansion for all users may take much longer. In the meantime, Android users will have to wait a little longer – after all, the Spaces feature itself came to iOS a few months before it was launched on Android.
