Twitter Spaces: You can now schedule, and set reminders
Hosts will be able to schedule Spaces, and listeners will have the option to set reminders.
Twitter has announced a new update for its Clubhouse-rival ‘Spaces’. Twitter Spaces now allows scheduling, and reminders. These features were announced earlier this month when Twitter made Spaces available to more users globally.
Twitter users will now be able to schedule Spaces for a designated date and time. The schedule option will appear when you try to start a new Space. It will be visible as a “schedule for later” button just below the one to start a Space. You can choose your preferred date and time to schedule your Space. Once you’re done scheduling your Space, you can share it via a tweet, DM or copy the link and share it on other platforms.

The reminder option will be visible to listeners for scheduled Spaces. There will be a “set reminder” button in the scheduled Space tweet that users can select to get notified when that Space is going to start. Twitter will send a reminder 30 minutes before the Space session starts, and another one at the start time.
Twitter Spaces is available on Android and iOS. Anyone can join and listen to conversations but only users with 600 or more followers can start a Space. Twitter plans to make it available to all users soon. In addition to scheduling and reminders, Twitter has more features planned for Spaces. Twitter will soon let hosts sell tickets for their Space sessions. They will have the ability to set ticket prices and how many are available to sell. More features include co-hosting Spaces, and improvements to live captions. Twitter is also currently testing a purple bubble around someone’s profile picture to indicate that they’re hosting a Space.
