In mid-November, Twitter announced the arrival of a new feature called Audio Spaces, which allows you to create chat rooms for voice conferences. At the time, the company did not give many details about the function, but it seems that now, the platform has started to test it.
The information was discovered by developer Jane Manchun Wong, known for her history of discovering new features on social networks. In the prints published by Wong on his Twitter profile, it is possible to note that the Audio Spaces rooms may be open or restricted, according to a privacy setting chosen by the user.
In addition, if nothing is changed by the official launch of the resource, it will be possible to invite friends to the rooms via DM, tweet or through a direct link.
Audio Spaces interaction and audio options
By default, when entering a voice chat room on Twitter, users will have their microphones disabled, as a precaution against noise during a session. The creator of the space will have the power to select who can speak during a meeting.
In addition to voice conversations, users will still be able to interact via emojis during calls.
Wong also got captures that indicate the presence of a transcription feature for voice conversations, probably a function designed for accessibility.
So far, Audio Spaces is in private beta, but Twitter has already announced that a public beta version should be released soon so that a group of users of the platform can experience the new function. The company plans to include people “disproportionately affected by abuse and damage to the platform: women and people from marginalized backgrounds” among the testers.
The idea is to test some features important, such as reporting inappropriate content. Users will be able to report spaces for infractions related to several categories, including violence, sexual content or abusive behavior.
