Even though Twitter is currently engaged in two legal battles, one with Elon Musk and the other with content blocking orders from the Indian government, the developers seem to be constantly working on features like the verified phone number label. and the number of views for tweets.
Now, the social media giant has officially announced that it will be adding podcasts to the platform as part of the newly revamped Spaces tab. The announcement may come as no surprise to some since Twitter had been working on the feature for some time now.
Some reports also suggested that social media was working on a dedicated podcast tab, but the idea of integrating podcasts into the Spaces tab seems natural since both feature audio content.
The revamped Spaces tab features custom hubs that group audio content by specific themes such as news, music, sports, and more. Now, Twitter listeners will be able to easily access a more personalized selection of live and recorded spaces discussing the topics that matter most to them,” the company said in a blog post.
Based on what users are interested in, Twitter said it will automatically suggest podcast topics to people. Users will also be able to give the podcast a thumbs up or a thumbs down. But it looks like the podcasts will only be visible to English-speaking users on Android and iOS devices.
In other news, a report from CNN and the Washington Post suggests that Twitter misled federal regulators about its defenses against hackers and spam accounts.
