Twitter Spaces is testing a feature that will allow users to better explore audio-only chat rooms. Previously, users could only see spaces of the people they follow if they were hosting. Now users will be able to see the Spaces that the people they follow are listening to. Users also have the option to hide the spaces they listen to from their subscribers. Twitter said it is “experimenting” with the new Spaces features with a few users on iOS and Android, so don’t expect the feature to roll out immediately to everyone.
Through a tweet, Twitter Spaces announced that it is experimenting with a new feature that lets you see what the users you follow are listening to, at the top of your timeline. The tweet also mentions that users will be able to hide the spaces they listen to from their followers if they wish. Users can activate this feature by visiting the Settings and privacy menu and navigate to Privacy and Security option. Once there, in the The spaces menu users will see an option Let subscribers see the spaces you listen to. However, users should note that they will always be visible to other users in the spaces they are listening to.
we’re experimenting with ways to help you discover more spaces. for some of you on ios and android, if someone you follow is listening to a Space, you will see it at the top of your tl.

Earlier this month, Twitter announcement update its API v2 to make it easier for developers to find spaces. Developers will now be able to “search for live or scheduled spaces using criteria such as Space ID, User ID, or Keyword.” Essentially, developers could also redirect users to a space directly from other third-party apps.
In addition, Twitter also has announcement that it expand the ability to add more co-hosts to Twitter Spaces. Hosts will now be able to nominate up to two co-hosts for a space. In total, a space can now have one host, two co-hosts and up to 10 speakers. Co-organizers will be able to invite speakers, manage requests, remove attendees, pin Tweets, and more.
