Hey! Welcome to Clubhouse — a more human place on the Internet, where people come together for great conversation.
The hallway is home to hundreds of thousands of discussions on every topic under the sun — from SCUBA diving to social justice, crypto to comic books, fashion, backpacking, Japanese language, morning news shows, meditation, movie clubs, book clubs, and so much more. It’s all unfolding in real time from all around the world.
On Clubhouse you can sit back and quietly listen, raise your hand to chime in, or host your own rooms. Whether you’re talking with your closest friends or making new ones, it’s a place where you can experience unforgettable moments with other humans, and leave feeling better than when you arrived.
We’re so excited for you to join!
Hey there! We're constantly fixing bugs, improving the product, and adding new features. For full details, please see the release notes in the app. Thank you!

Who is Talking?
Let me start by saying that this is, by far, the most excited I’ve been about a new social network since Instagram first entered the ring. But, in my couple days of usage, I’ve began to notice one thing that really stands out as being a bit annoying: lack of speaker indication. When rooms have a healthy amount of people on the stage, you find yourself playing a game of hide & seek as you tediously scroll to find who’s avatar has the ring. So here’s my 2 possible suggestions & wishes:
1) As they already have for “Followed by Speakers”, make a “Moderators” section at the top of the room and a “Stage” section below it. Then make it to where speaker notifications (“___ is speaking” as a drop down notification) are exclusive to when a moderator is speaking. This way, the amount of scrolling to find who is talking would be reduced to on stage participants only. And the audience will be alerted when a moderator is speaking.
2) Decrease the profile sizes of those on stage as the number increases so that more avatars can fit on the screen. That way, when someone is speaking, we can see who it is without scrolling as much.
Poor Design & No Enforcement for Community Guidelines
I was sent a request to join Clubhouse to chat - however, once on the platform, I was left incredibly disappointed by the manner in which the platform is managed. There are no options offered on the platform to either report, block, or suspend users who are using the app to promote abusive or hateful content. Additionally, there is no “fact-checking” mechanism, which signifies that users are free to say whatever for community notoriety. This has led to a rampant spread of misinformation online, such as with a notable American celebrity (who I will not name here) deciding to use their platform to mock survivors of genocide, as well as continue to deny the existence of genocide. It appears quite irresponsible on Clubhouse’s part to continue to host these conversations, as well as remove any ability to contact support within the app or through the website. If one person is able to spew hate speech and lies over this digital platform, then of course there are countless others using Clubhouse for the same exact purpose. Overall, I am leaving the app with a one star review - if zero stars were possible, then I would do that instead. I do not recommend the app. If you want to talk to people, go outside and talk to some real people instead of spending all your time sitting in a digital room. Clubhouse was a huge letdown and a disappointment.
I absolutely love clubhouse, the only thing that I dislike is industry people charging others to speak on a free platform that was built to create the connection between the industry world with individuals who are somewhat already in the industry. I feel like clubhouse needs to keep the app invite only maybe doing 1 invite every two months to stop the app from being over saturated like Facebook or Instagram where anyone can join. I think they need to have someone go into these rooms and make sure all guidelines are being met because most of them are not. This shouldn’t be a popularity app, but a tool to help creative minds link with professionals and network. People should not be charged to enter a public room by people claiming to be professionals. Cashapp’s should not be allowed in profile descriptions on a public platform. And I feel like being that the app was create to be an open form raising of hands should not be disabled. Moderators should just pick who that want on stage but not make someone feel less then by disabling hands.
