Clubhouse launches new features to boost user experience

Social audio app Clubhouse has launched two new features designed to elevate user experience in the app’s latest update.

The announcement:

With updates coming straight from Clubhouse’s blog, the social audio business is rolling out updates to its app, including Web LIstening, and Share on Clubhouse.

Web Listening

Web Listening allows anyone to listen to a Clubhouse room from their phones or laptops, without needing to download an app or log in! 

To start, it will work for both Replays and live Rooms with Replays enabled, and will include support for most major browsers. If users find it useful, Clubhouse plans to expand support to cover more room types, more countries, and more parts of the full Clubhouse experience over time.

Share on Clubhouse

Now when you tap the “Share” button at the bottom of a room (or Replay), you’ll see three options: Share on Clubhouse, share via a social network, or copy the link to share via a messaging app. If you select Share on Clubhouse, you’ll be able to add a comment (e.g., “This person is rapping people’s bios and it’s insane”) and then share it to your followers. They’ll see this room in their Hallway and, if the room is live, also be notified that you shared it so they can come join you. 

With this release, Clubhouse is also giving creators more tools to understand how their rooms are doing by launching Share and Clip counts at the bottom of the room — and the beginnings of a new Room Insights page. To start, creators will only be able to see the shares of their room, but we’ll be adding more insights over time.
