Twitter avails Podcasts to paid iOS members


Twitter has started to roll out the updated Spaces tab. Members of Twitter Blue’s early access Labs programme can now test out the new UI component on iOS devices.


The tab combines recorded and live Spaces and even provides a number of well-known podcasts that you can access right from the app.

When developer Jane Manchun Wong discovered references to the tab in Twitter’s code in March, it became clear that the social media platform was working on integrating podcasts. A few months later, the business started testing the interface modification on Android and iOS with a small number of English-speaking users. The tab’s current design includes distinct categories for existing and prospective Spaces as well as a Stations section that categorises podcasts and Spaces according to common themes.


It’s intentional for the UI Twitter chose to not appear optimal for discovering a specific podcast or episode. The tab won’t take the place of specific applications like Pocket Casts. However, if doing so leads you to check out a few Spaces, the tab will have served its purpose of introducing you to new music.


Twitter helps people connect with unique and compelling voices around the world. With podcasts, they are basically taking that connection to a whole new level.
