Twitter social network announced on Thursday that it’s integrating podcasts into its platform as part of its newly designed Spaces tab. (Earlier this month, the social network revealed that the Spaces tab is about to be completely redesigned). For the instant, the revamped Spaces tab and the addition of podcasts will be visible to a group of global English-speaking audience on iOS and Android. At first, only users who have English set as their primary language will have access to the podcasts.To be noticed, the redesign introduces personalized hubs for users called “Stations” that group content together based on different topics, such as news, music, sports and more. The hubs will also feature the most popular podcasts from around the world.
On the Spaces Tab, users will see three sections. The top of the tab will show Stations, which scroll horizontally and showcase different themes and Topics to listen to. Below that there are Spaces spotlight, which lists some of the top curated audio content. Lastly, it will be too a list of upcoming Spaces. The company will automatically suggest podcasts to help users discover content based on the topics they’re interested in.“Integrating podcasts into Spaces, where audio conversations happen on Twitter, is another way we’re continuing to invest in audio creators,” Twitter said in a blog post.
