Twitter brings Spaces to the web on desktop and mobile
What you need to know
- Twitter now supports Spaces on the web, but you can only join existing ones.
- Both the mobile and desktop websites are good to go.
No app? No problem!.
Twitter continues its rollout of Spaces by adding the ability to join in-progress chats from the web for the first time. You can't create a Space yet, but that's likely in the works for a future update.
Right now, Spaces on the web are still classed as a beta feature which means you might run into some issues here and there. Still, being able to listen in to a new Space is a good start – and you can set reminders to join a scheduled Space, too.

Now you can join a Space to listen in, test out the new transcription design, and set reminders to join a scheduled Space. https://t.co/xFTEeAgM4x
Spaces are Twitter's answer to Clubhouse, allowing people to join rooms and talk in real-time while a moderator controls who can and cannot speak.
The latest move comes after Twitter promised to bring Spaces to the web last month. It's taken a few weeks, but Spaces fans now have a way to get involved no matter where they are. While most people will have the Twitter app installed on their phones, that might not be the case on computers. The addition of support via the web could be a big deal for some. It's also something Clubhouse can't currently offer, too.
