X Spaces, formerly known as Twitter Spaces, is a live audio conversation feature on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter).

It allows users to host and participate in live audio discussions, akin to a virtual town hall meeting.

Spaces offer a dynamic way to engage with followers, hear from influential figures, and discuss trending topics in real time.

X Spaces enables live audio discussions, allowing users to join in and listen to conversations as they happen.

This feature is especially useful for real-time events and announcements.

In a Space, there are hosts, co-hosts, and speakers. The host creates the Space and controls who gets to speak, while co-hosts assist in moderating. Speakers are invited by the host to share their thoughts.

Listeners can join the conversation by requesting to speak, sending reactions through emojis, or participating in the discussion via text.

Spaces can be public, allowing anyone to join, or private, limited to selected participants. This flexibility ensures that conversations can be tailored to specific audiences.

Hosts can choose to record their Spaces, making the audio available for replay. This feature ensures that those who miss the live session can still benefit from the discussion.

X Spaces includes accessibility features such as live captions, making it more inclusive for users with hearing impairments.
