Twitter continues to make changes to its Spaces service with the company announcing new features that will make it easier to share a Space that you're already in as well as find new ones that might be of interest. A new Space management system has also been announced.
Announced via a series of tweets — of course! — the features begin with a new way to tweet out a Space directly from within it, including associated tags. Tweeting links to Spaces has always been possible, but this is the first time it's been something people can do from within a Space itself
we learned in our research that people want to communicate & interact with each other both in & outside of Spaces. now on Andoid & iOS, you can tweet directly from the Space with its #hashtag readily available. stay tuned for handles to be added in the future pic.twitter.com/AmJltBG3n6— Spaces (@TwitterSpaces) July 29, 2021
People on the Tab beta will also be able to search for Spaces via title and host, although there is no mention of when this will be made available to everyone across the service.
Finally, the iPhone app now also has improved guest management. Twitter says that a new section will show the Space participants as well as anyone who has a pending speaker request.
You'll of course need the official Twitter app to use all of these features and while it isn't the best iPhone app for reading tweets, it's the one you're going to need to use if you want to take advantage of Spaces and other new features the company adds in the future.
iPhone users on Chinese social media have expressed their displeasure at a glitch which meant Siri couldn't read out the number of medals China has won at the Olympic Games, some even claiming Apple had done it deliberately.
