Twitter Acquires Podcast Platform Breaker To Support Voice Chat Feature

Twitter purchased Breaker, a podcast platform, for its voice chat feature Spaces. The podcast platform will be incorporated into Twitter as of January 15. However, how much Twitter paid for this transaction is unknown. In December, a new feature of Twitter called “Spaces” was announced. As a matter of fact this feature would allow voice chat rooms to be set up on Twitter and users to enter voice communication with each other. Twitter officials, who continued their work, announced that a radical decision was taken on the issue.

With the popularity of the publishing industry, the number of programs in this field has also increased. One of these apps was Breaker. Deciding to get professional support in order to develop the feature named Spaces and provide the best service possible; the company announced the purchase of Breaker. In the statements made on the subject, the purchase cost was not announced. However, Breaker CEO Erik Berlin said that with this acquisition, a perfect match will be established between Twitter and Breaker. Stating that they have been working on voice communication for a long time, Berlin said that they will continue to work for Twitter with the same passion.

How Much the Breaker Was Purchased Has Not Been Announced

Breaker developers have focused on podcasts until now. Users could use this platform as a podcast network. The platform, which has been serving for a long time, also allowed users to interact with each other. Developers of the Breaker application, which will be closed as of January 15, 2021; will transfer all of their knowledge to Twitter after this date. It seems that Twitter pays great attention to the Spaces feature. Because the purchase of another company for the voice talk feature on Twitter; which is not very disturbing for engineers, is the clearest indicator of this. In addition, with this move, Twitter has provided the infrastructure to expand the scope of the voice chat feature to be added to the platform. The most talked about platform of 2021 will most likely be Twitter.
