In 2020 the Clubhouse app was rolled out as a platform where a group of people can communicate on a common topic. People can talk on any topic, from sports to politics, through the audio-chat room.
Until now, Clubhouse just allowed its users to communicate with other members in voice-chat. However, the platform has now introduced an in-room chat that allows users to communicate through text messages during a live room. The chat feature will allow mic-shy people to express their opinions during the live room. Henceforth, a live room audience can participate in the discussion or request a song in a live jamming room.
Furthermore, people can also give reactions during live audio-room via emojis. This way, users can provide feedback in real-time.
So, with the inclusion of the chat feature in the Clubhouse app, it is now not just an audio-chat app.
Having said that, let’s see how Clubhouse chat works.
While creating a new room, the creator will see an option to disable the text chat. Likewise, on the creation of the room, the moderators can delete chat messages. Meanwhile, the room participants will get the ability to report comments and notify moderators. The report feature will further ensure that a safe environment is maintained throughout the platform.
Rooms that have enabled text chat will show a dedicated icon at the bottom left of the screen. Anyone who is listening to the replay of the room can read all the messages sent during the live session of that particular room.
This move from the company comes to extend its platform to a broader audience.
Back in December 2021, Clubhouse brought support for 13 more languages bringing the total tally to 26. Support for 13 new languages is Arabic, Bengali, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Farsi/ Persian, Hausa, Igbo, Marathi, Nepali, Somali, Thai, Turkish, and Yoruba.
