Everything You Need To Know About Clubhouse

What is Clubhouse?

In short, Clubhouse is a new, exclusive, audio-based, social media app. It lets its users, “talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people around the world”. In the app, there are different chatrooms on different subjects that you can join in on or simply sit back and listen to.

Think of it as a virtual cocktail party.

Also, there’s one rule… Conversations may not be recorded and are not saved.

Who uses it?

For now, the app is invite-only. Big celebrities like Oprah, Kevin Hart, Jared Leto, and Drake are all in on the action. That means you may get the chance to join, and have, personal convos with some of the biggest celebrities and artists of our time.

“Clubhouse is voice-only, and we think voice is a very special medium. With no camera on, you don’t have to worry about eye contact, what you’re wearing, or where you are…”, Clubhouse states on their homepage.

They continue, “Instead of typing something and hitting Send, you’re engaged in a back-and-forth dialogue with others. The intonation, inflection and emotion conveyed through voice allow you to pick up on nuance and form uniquely human connections with others. You can still challenge each other and have tough conversations—but with voice there is often an ability to build more empathy.”

Want to get involved?

The app is still in beta-testing. Currently, it’s also only available for iPhone users. So for now, iPhone users can download the app from the Apple store and reserve a username.

In addition, the app has been under some heat regarding the moderation and prevention of hate speech and instances of bullying, so the app is taking its time to iron out these issues and build a better community before fully opening its doors to the public. They’re also working to prepare the app to be able to house larger numbers of people.

In the meantime, users are free to reserve a username and get on the waitlist.
