How to Join a Club in the Clubhouse App
Clubhouse has been on everyone’s lips lately. It has carved out quite a reputation for innovation and creativity. As an audio chat application, it gives you an entirely different experience compared to most social media platforms that focus on text and images.
To communicate, you need to join a room or create one, but all rooms are found within clubs. So, how can one join a club? Or how can you create one and invite members?
In this article, we’re going to show you how to join a club in Clubhouse and answer a number of questions to help you understand just what the platform offers.
What Is a Club?
A club is an interest-based group that works pretty much like a Facebook group. It brings together users with a common interest. This could be anything – from computers, mobile devices, agriculture, space tech, through to cryptocurrency, cybersecurity, and much more.
Club members enjoy a host of benefits. They can create or join rooms to initiate conversations, curate speakers, search current members, and even nominate new members. They can also host events and notify members in advance through an in-app calendar.
How to Join a Club in Clubhouse
As a new service, Clubhouse is yet to develop a detailed operations manual. In addition, some of the tools are, at the moment, not freely accessible to every user.
Currently, there’s no way to join a club. However, all existing clubs allow you to follow them. When you start following a club, you’ll get notifications for all upcoming public events.
A club’s directory is yet another tool that’s still in the pipeline. At the moment you can’t see all the available clubs at a glance. Nonetheless, there are several ways to discover clubs:
- Opening the profiles of other users to see the clubs they’ve joined.
- Checking out scheduled events on the calendar.
- Scrolling through your feed to see the club events taking place in real-time.
1. Why Has Clubhouse Become So Popular?
Clubhouse offers a different user experience compared to other social media platforms. While others concentrate on text and images, Clubhouse gives you the chance to communicate via audio. It’s pretty much like a podcast, but one that also gives you an opportunity to chime in and share your thoughts with others.
Clubhouse has become so popular because a number of celebrities and tech moguls are already using it. We’re talking about public figures like Elon Musk, Oprah Winfrey, Kevin Hart, Wiz Khalifa, Drake, and many others. This has created a buzz around the platform as fans strive to at least listen in to their favorite celebrity or even engage with them one on one.
In addition, Clubhouse allows you to shed off some of the formalities found on other platforms.
For instance, you can choose not to upload a profile picture. What’s more, you don’t need to worry about how you look because you’ll never have to use your camera. In the words of the app’s founders, “You can talk on Clubhouse while you’re folding laundry, breastfeeding, commuting, working on your couch in the basement, or going for a run.”
Another reason why Clubhouse is quickly gaining users is that there are no limits on topics. Anything goes. You’re free to talk about anything on your mind. However, there are certain community guidelines that must be followed.
Finally, the app’s friendly user interface has been a big hit. Even as a new user, you’re able to navigate and check out the current users, rooms, live events, and more.
2. Can I Create a Club on Clubhouse?
At the moment, starting a club isn’t easy. You’ll need to fill out and submit a Club request form. Then you’ll have to wait in line as the approval team analyzes your request. In fact, the app’s developers are on record saying that there are many club requests under evaluation, and they’ve had to prioritize approving membership to existing clubs over requests for starting new ones.
If you’re wondering whether there’s a way to get your club request approved a lot faster, you’ll be pleased to learn that being more active in existing clubs can help. If you can host a few weekly shows, even better.
3. Does Clubhouse Work on iOS?
At present, Clubhouse is exclusively an iOS app. With any iOS powered device, you can download the app. However, you need an invitation from an existing user to start using the app. As a new user, you’ll get two invites.
But you can earn more invites by being more active on the platform.
If you download the app and attempt to sign up, you’ll be put on a waitlist for an indefinite period.
4. Does Clubhouse Work on Android?
Unfortunately, Clubhouse doesn’t work on Android devices at the moment. There’s word that an Android version of the app is in the works, but there’s no official release date yet.
5. How Does Clubhouse Work?
Clubhouse connects people via audio. Once you receive an invite and join, you can listen to live conversations in rooms or even initiate your own. You can hop in and out of rooms as you wish without any restrictions.
You’re connected with friends and other people you may not have interacted with before. The topic of discussion can be anything: stories, debates, questions, and more.
6. How Do You Invite Someone to Join Your Club?
If you’re an Admin or Club Founder, you can easily invite someone to join your club. To do so, tap on the ‘Mail’ icon and then select “Invite people.”
You’ll then be prompted to enter their phone number. Your invites will then receive a link that will require them to download and install the app to sign up.
7. How Many Invites Do You Get on Clubhouse?
As soon as you sign up, you receive two invites. You can earn more by being more active in rooms and hosting at least once a week.
8. What Is a Clubhouse Invite?
A Clubhouse invite is a link sent to phone numbers to help new users join the platform. An invite link directs one to download and install the Clubhouse app. Once installed, you’re able to sign up and access different clubs and rooms.
9. What Is the Clubhouse App Used For?
Clubhouse is an audio chat application. It’s all about the spoken word. It helps people to communicate with others around the world. You can host a conversation or join one.
