X Spaces a une vidéo en direct

X Spaces broadcast a live video

In the ever-changing digital world, the platform once known as Twitter, now called “X”, is once again reinventing itself. In this era of instant connectivity, X decided to take the next step by introducing a video option for its live audio feature, known as Spaces. It was during an announcement by Elon Musk, the owner and CTO of the platform, that the public learned of this exciting new feature. Inspired by a demo by a user named “Dogedesigner,” this feature promises to revolutionize the way hosts communicate with their audiences.

With Spaces, users are invited to explore a new dimension of live communication. When creating a session, hosts are now offered the option toenable video. This new feature allows guests to choose between the front or rear camera of their device, as well as opt for a landscape or vertical orientation of their video stream. However, it is important to note that this innovation is currently only available on the iOS version of the X application, and some users have reported significant delays when using this feature.

The dynamic of Spaces with video is reminiscent of Twitch, providing an environment where the host’s video stream takes center stage, surrounded by icons of co-hosts, speakers, and listeners. This introduces a two-way interactive format, where, just like in a live chat room, any audience member can speak. However, to get this experience, users must actively join the Spaces session.

Elon Musk, when announcing this innovation late last year, raised expectations of an experience similar to videoconferencing applications, where the video feed switches to the current speaker. However, the current implementation instead emphasizes the host’s video feed, making it the main event, although other participants can chime in with their permission.

In short, the new video integration of X Spaces brings an additional dimension to the platform, distinguishing itself from its existing live streaming function. It transforms the traditional concept of a live broadcast, where the audience simply comments or sends hearts, into a real live chat room, much more interactive. This development clearly illustrates X’s ambition to continue to innovate and offer its users ever more creative and engaged means of live communication.
