Messages and videos are out of date! Drop-in audio chat rooms on voice-based social networks such as Clubhouse and Twitter Spaces are a new rage—and that is where the battle for dominance is currently raging. Although Twitter Spaces Vs Clubhouse battle shows that they are very similar, yet have subtle differences in their user interface that sets them apart.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison of Twitter Spaces and Clubhouse (as of April 7, 2021) features:
|User roles||2(Speakers, listeners)||3(Moderators, Speakers, listeners)|
|Platforms||iOS and Android||iOS only|
|Registration||Open to all (listeners); hosting available to selected beta testers||Have to receive invite from an existing user; once you’re in, anyone can host|
|Audio quality||Hi-fidelity audio built on Periscope’s infrastructure||Low-quality audio|
|Devices||Mobile app, web acess in progress||Mobile app only|
|Max Speakers /listeners||Max 10 Speakers, no limit to listeners||No limit to Speakers, max 5,000 listeners|
It remains to be seen how Twitter Spaces’ full launch will impact Clubhouse’s popularity.
One huge difference between both platforms is their user base. Clubhouse is a new app that is building its base from scratch, whereas Twitter already has millions of daily active users, which gives Spaces a leg.
