Twitter's Clubhouse-style audio chat rooms land on Android

Twitter Spaces, the company's answer to Clubhouse, is now available on Android. Until now, the audio chat rooms were iOS-only.

The Spaces feature is still in beta. Only a select number of users can host the chat rooms, but now anyone on iOS and Android can join conversations. For the time being, only iOS users can host Spaces, but Twitter says those on Android will be able to create their own rooms soon. It's "still working out some things," according to an announcement tweet.

While Spaces is clearly designed to compete with Clubhouse, Twitter has been working on other audio-centric functions. Last summer, it started testing a way for users to include voice clips in tweets, a feature that later became more broadly available. In the wake of criticism over the feature's lack of accessibility, Twitter announced plans to add automated transcriptions for video and audio by the early part of this year.
