- Anyone can now share Twitter Spaces clips on iOS and Android.
- Clips are designed to make content from Twitter’s live audio feature more easily sharable on the platform.
- The new tool is a way for users to boost interest in their Spaces.
Microblogging platform Twitter has announced that now anyone can share Twitter Spaces clips on iOS and Android platforms. The company recently said that it started testing a new clipping tool for Spaces. Now, the feature is being rolled out to all the users. With this feature, users can now create 30 seconds of audio from recorded Spaces to share with others on the microblogging site. The new tool is a way for users to boost interest in their Spaces while also highlighting specific parts of a broadcast without having to share an entire recording.
Previously, only hosts were allowed to record Spaces. Now, anyone in the Twitter Space can make a clip which can be conveniently shared with others. As is customary with the feature, the clips are set to expire after 30 days. Do note that this new feature is only available to app users, and hasn’t arrived for Twitter web users yet. The microblogging service reassures that support for web is coming soon. Clips are designed to make content from Twitter’s live audio feature more easily sharable on the platform, by serving up the best bits of an audio livestream without asking listeners to sit through the whole thing.
Users Can Now Share Twitter Spaces Clips on iOS And Android
When Twitter was testing the clipping feature in March, it was limited to select hosts on iOS. We can expect Twitter Spaces to gain in popularity as participants will also be allowed to extract clips and share them on the platform. Considering the limited attention span of users, clips will be a great tool to grab more eyeballs and attract more people to the platform. Moreover, viewers will be able to view the highlights without having to watch the entire video.
Twitter is just the latest company to roll out support for clips to encourage people to share content on its platform. Clips from Twitch streams are perhaps the most popular example, but Amazon also lets you share clips from some of its shows on Prime Video, and YouTube has announced similar functionality in the past. With so much free content available to stream, clips like these offer a helpful teaser without you having to commit to watching a lengthy video or livestream.
