Twitter has begun testing a new cropping tool for the Live Spaces feature, the company announced this week.

Hosts selected via iOS can now extract 30 seconds of audio from the recorded region to share with others on Twitter.

All iOS users can now view and listen to clips in the timeline. Although Android and web users will be able to access it soon.

The company also plans to roll out cropping to all future users, not just consoles.

A company spokesperson said, “There is no limit to the number of audio clips that can be created. They will remain on the platform for 30 days.

"Anyone on iOS can now watch and listen to Spaces clips on their timeline," he added. Android users and web version also get this feature. We are monitoring feedback and plan to roll out the re-frame to all Twitter users in the near future.

Hosts can create audio clips from the recorded room that can be shared via a tweet linked to the full recording.

The new tool is a way for hosts to increase their interest in the room while highlighting certain parts of the show without sharing the entire recording.

Clubhouse, the social audio app that supported the launch of Spaces, introduced the cropping feature last September.

With this feature, live listeners in public can trim the last 30 seconds of audio and share it anywhere. It can also be shared on other social media platforms.

In recent months, Twitter has put up some posts in Live Spaces to promote the product.

The company is developing Spaces Recordings, a feature that allows moderators to share tweets with recordings from previous spaces.

Earlier this year, the company gave shared recording room hosts the ability to see how many listeners had joined a live broadcast and how many people re-recorded after a session.

Live audio has grown in popularity during the pandemic as people around the world are confined to their homes. With restrictions lifted in many countries and in-person events returning, companies that offer live audio room features like Twitter and Clubhouse are trying to introduce new features to keep users.
