Since its debut in 2020, participating in a Clubhouse conversation has involved opening the app. But that is no longer the case. Starting today, if you live in the US, you can listen and live in replay-enabled rooms using a web browser. Also, you don’t need to log in to use the Clubhouse in this way.
Clubhouse notes that the feature is experimental, so expect bugs. However, the company says it will be launched in more countries if people find it “useful”. Likewise, it will consider supporting more room types and other parts of the Clubhouse experience over time.
Separately, the company is updating its stock sheet. When in a guest room, you can tap the Share button, located at the bottom of the interface, to post a link to a session via the Clubhouse, a social network or messaging app. By choosing the first option, you can add a comment to describe the room. If it’s a live room, your followers will receive a notification so they can join.
Notably, both updates see the Clubhouse making their app more accessible. When the app was first released, you had to. But as companies like Facebook and Twitter began adding live audio to their platforms, they were forced to adapt in an attempt to stay relevant.
