Twitter Inc. said on Tuesday that it has rolled out an audio chat feature space, equivalent to its clubhouse, on Android devices.

The app is in beta testing for select Android users, the company said in a tweet. Users can join and chat in chat rooms for now, but will soon be able to create their own.

The social network announced a private beta test of Spaces in iOS devices in December last year, which was intended to compete with Clubhouse, an invite audio chat app exclusively available only to iPhone users. Twitter’s move to expand the feature to Android users could help give it a lead on the Clubhouse app, which is currently only available in iOS.

According to app analytics firm App Annie, the clubhouse has exceeded 8 million downloads worldwide since its launch in February last April. Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s presence on the app has helped it generate over 2.6 million downloads in the US alone. Last month, the Times Told that Facebook wants to build a product similar to the clubhouse.

Twitter’s spaces are public content – meaning they will appear in a fleet of followers and will also have a shared public link. The chatroom producer will have control over who can speak and invites the DM to them.

Last month, the micro-blogging platform introduced the Voice DMS feature in its app, allowing users to send voice messages in direct messages. CEO Jack Dorsey also said that Twitter intends to make its content moderation practices more transparent, allowing people more control to control their interactions.
