Twitter Spaces is testing a feature that will allow users to better explore audio-only chat rooms. Previously, users could only view Spaces of the people they follow when hosting. Now users can view Spaces what the people they follow are listening to. Users will also be given the option to hide the Spaces they are listening to from their followers. Twitter said it is “experimenting” Spaces’ new features with a few users on iOS and Android, so don’t expect the feature to be available to everyone right away.
Twitter Spaces announced via tweet 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 can hide the Spaces they are listening to from their followers if they wish. Users can enable this feature by going to the Settings and privacy menu and navigate to the Privacy and security option. Once there, in the spaces menu users will see an option Show followers which Spaces you’re listening to. However, users should note that they are still 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’ll see it at the top of your fluorescent.
you can control who can see your listening activity in your settings.

Earlier this month, Twitter announced that it is updating its API v2 to make it easier for developers to search for Spaces. Developers can now “look up live or scheduled Spaces using criteria such as Spaces ID, User ID, or keyword.” Essentially, developers could also redirect users to a Space directly from other third-party apps.
In addition, Twitter too announced that it expands the ability to add more co-hosts to Twitter Spaces. Hosts can now designate 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-hosts can invite speakers, manage requests, delete participants, pin Tweets and more.
