NUSADAILY.COM – JAKARTA – A new application called Clubhouse has been widely discussed in recent days.
Although it was launched in 2020, the popularity of the app rose after the emergence of Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX in the Clubhouse app. Musk’s conversation with Robinhood Markets chairman Vladimir Tenev at the Clubhouse has caused the app’s populare to soar abruptly.
So, what is a Clubhouse and how does it work?
The app was developed by Silicon Valley entrepreneur Paul Davison and former Google employee Rohan Seth.
Clubhouse is an audio chat-based application, like radio talk in conference calls.
Clubhouse users can listen to conversations, interviews, and discussions between interesting people on a variety of topics.
Clubhouse creates a place where people can meet to host, listen to, or join conversations in community apps.
How to Join
One of the things that makes the Clubhouse famous is its still exclusive nature. To join a conversation, users can download the app and can put their name on the waiting list, but there’s no guarantee of getting an account.
Users can only create accounts when there are other Clubhouse users inviting. But, invitations that can be given by users are also limited, 1 user can only invite 2 people maximum.
Once invited, the user will get a link sent to the phone number that points to the registration page in the application.
In addition, clubhouse can only be used by Iphone users at least iOS 13.
How It Works
The way Clubhose works is very simple. After successfully creating an account, users will be given several topics to choose from. After that the user will get room recommendations with topics related to the previously selected topic.
Users can join an existing chat room or can start their own room, invite new people and start a new conversation.
Each room has moderators, speakers, and listeners. Moderators control who gets the privilege of speaking. Listeners can also “raise their hands” to speak. That’s why, don’t be surprised if in the Clubhouse app users can chat directly with artists or influencers!
That’s a little explanation of the Clubhouse app and how it works. Good luck! (mic)
