(Pocket-lint) – With Clubhouse taking the world (or, at least, a little bit of the world) by storm, Twitter is unsurprisingly emerging as a competitor to the audio chat service.
That competitor is Spaces, and it’s been open for testing on iOS for a few weeks now, so users can check it out and see how it works while Twitter is still working on issues and bugs.
Now the test opens up a bit and lets Android users in, albeit in limited capacity at the moment.
Android fans, our beta version is growing! from today you will be able to join and talk in any space. Soon you will be able to create your own, but we are still working on some things. Stay away from living spaces above your home tl

Users of Android devices will be able to join and talk to Spaces, but they won’t be able to configure theirs yet – it’s limited to the iOS slice at this time.
To join a space and see what’s going on, keep an eye on the top of your timeline – they appear in the same place as the fleets, but with a purple limit instead of a blue limit. There doesn’t seem to be a way for Android users to sign up specifically for the beta, so it’s just a matter of staying vigilant.
