Twitter’s Spaces is getting bigger which makes it easy to share and discover audio features. Users will now be able to compose a new tweet directly from Space, which will link to the audio chat and all the accompanying hashtags. Although it was previously possible to compose new tweets while listening to the space bar, placing the composer directly in the space will allow participants to more easily tweet about the conversation as it unfolds.
On iOS, Twitter also adds new “guest management” controls, which allow hosts to more easily see who is in the space and who requested the speech. Finally, the company adds a new search feature to the Spaces it tab in June. Now, instead of just selecting a list of active Spaces, users with card access will also be able to search Spaces by host title or name or handle. (However, there are no updates on when more people will have access to the Spaces section of the app.)

Twitter has been constantly updating Spaces since introducing competitor Clubhouse late last year. The company recently added support for functions and began experimenting with enabling hosts to conversations.
