Twitter is testing a new way to watch YouTube videos directly in the Home timeline of users, ensuring that they don’t have to leave the conversation on the platform.

The company tweeted, “Starting today on iOS, we’re testing a way to watch YouTube videos directly in your Home timeline, without leaving the conversation on Twitter.”

Currently, when one taps the play button on a Youtube preview link in a tweet, Twitter opens the YouTube app installed on the phone to play the video.

It must be noted that this option wasn’t available before.

This new feature will make it possible to start watching YouTube videos without leaving Twitter.

Twitter also plans to launch a new “Spaces” chat room feature that is similar to the social networking app Clubhouse. The Twitter Spaces tool is currently available on iOS Beta with a host of iOS-exclusive features such as voice tweets, but they haven’t yet arrived on Android devices.

After installing a specific beta version of the Twitter app, some android users revealed that the Spaces feature was working for them.
