Twitter has been working on a new feature for Spaces for some time now and has recently updated users on what the feature is going to look like. The new Spaces recording tool is designed to give Spaces users a whole new experience by allowing them to download the Spaces audio files for editing and re-using after having hosted the original broadcast.

While the option to download past broadcasts is already available in Spaces, it is not so convenient and so the new Record Space toggle is here to make the work easier.
Moreover, the new recording option is also going to increase engagement with Spaces, as well as maximize monetization and sponsorship. The ability to share past Spaces broadcasts on profiles is likely to enhance Spaces’ discovery, which is something that Twitter is also separately working on.
Other work in development dedicated to Spaces includes a new Spaces tab and a new Spaces creator fund. Twitter plans to launch the Spaces creator fund soon, which will serve as a way to incentivize more Spaces activity.
