Twitter now lets anyone listen to Spaces even if they don’t have an account
Hosts can now make a link and share it so that anyone on the web can join a Space.
Twitter is hoping to expand its popular Spaces feature beyond the platform itself. Now, the company is letting anyone hop in and listen to a Twitter Space conversation, even if they don’t have an account on the platform.
Previously when a user hosts a Twitter Space on the platform, users had to have an active Twitter account in order to gain access to the conversation. With this new feature, the host of the Space has the ability to create a direct link to that space, and users can use that link to listen in without having to log in to the platform.
Of course, there are limitations. You won’t be able to participate in the Space if you don’t have an account. You will only be able to listen to the conversation. Still, this could be a great way to increase the reach of Spaces beyond the users on the platform.

In addition to the new feature allowing you to join a Space without having a Twitter account, the platform is also rolling out its recording feature for Spaces.
The record feature will let a Space host record the conversation and share it on their page for up to 30 days, so individuals who didn’t have a chance to join the live Space could listen afterward. The feature has just begun rolling out to iOS hosts, and all listeners on both Android and iOS can take advantage of the recordings.
Spaces’ new feature that lets users without a Twitter account listen in will be a great way to help extend a host’s reach beyond the confines of the platform.
