Twitter has started Spaces tab. Starting today, iOS can try the new UI element through the subscription’s Early Access Labs feature. The tab brings together live and recorded Spaces and even offers a selection of popular podcasts that you can listen to right from the app.
Evidence that Twitter was working to add podcasts emerged in March when developer Jane Manchun Wong came across the tab in Twitter’s code. the company started testing the interface optimization with a small group of English-speaking users on Android and iOS. In its current iteration, the tab offers separate categories for current and upcoming spaces, and a stations section that groups podcasts and spaces under similar themes.
If Twitter’s interface doesn’t look ideal for finding a specific podcast or episode, that’s by design. The tab will not replace dedicated apps like Pocket Casts. However, it can help you discover something new to listen to, and if you check out a Space or two in the process, the tab has done its job.
