-<note important>This feature is currently **opt-in** in our web client Element. You can still use the older communities feature, but we will switch on support for spaces in Element soon, which in turn disables support for communities. You can opt into spaces by clicking on the community creation button (at the bottom of the community sidebar) and activating the spaces beta there.</note>

-You might wonder, "I have a group of people, but we also have a set of topics and a single room for that might be confusing!" That is what spaces are for, they group people and rooms and can have long descriptions. They are a tool to organise rooms and people by topic. When creating a space, you can add existing rooms, direct conversations and users to it. You can always add more rooms and people later and both rooms and people can be members of arbitrarily many spaces, so you can group them however you like.+You might wonder, "I have a group of people, but we also have a set of topics and a single room for that might be confusing!"

 Unfortunately which spaces exist on the server is currently **not** searchable, so you will need to be invited to join an existing space. This should become more comfortable soon™️. Unfortunately which spaces exist on the server is currently **not** searchable, so you will need to be invited to join an existing space.
