LIVE

Discovering smaller accounts

Carousel in hallway shows lots of large account from other platforms. See lots posting on other platforms. Will we keep seeing people we can ONLY discover on Clubhouse?  

  • Try to show accounts you will like based on things you already follow and interact with – clubs, rooms, and connections
  • If we don’t have enough signals – we backfill with generally well received suggestions 
  • More personalised suggestions
    • Hallway > Go to explore & Search for keywords interesting to you & active club search too!
    • iOS can use category / topics too 
    • Sparkle when you follow suggests other people like the one you followed 

Multiple feeds

Feed – Would you consider different feeds for different types of clubs? 

  • App is going to evolve a lot 
  • Core functionality shouldn’t change 
  • UI WILL CHANGE 
  • Multiple feeds sounds good and very interesting 
  •  

Pinning rooms

Would. you make it possible to PIN people or room to top of my feed

  • Curious why you would want to? 
    • Find room I’m in now
    • Want to find again as were in it 
    • Maybe to see what the room looks like when in the room
  • Specific implementation is different based on problem we are solving 
  • Maybe we need a history area to review where you were
  • No changes in next few weeks on this 
  • Next month or two 

App customisation

Like 1-2-1 private room & sidebar. Is there way to customise how I access this? Love to see bits I use most? 

  • Paul’s bias – Should get right Ui for everyone 
  • If lots of people want to access more – we should update or works better for power users only 
  • Don’t think we would customise modules any time soon 

Profile events

Every profile – nice to see swipe to see more, can only see next upcoming event

  • On the roadmap 
  • Should be soon as already on clubs 
  • Compact wrap on profiles not on clubs so maybe update this? 

Clubs update

please recap clubs update? How are shows different? How are members and followers different?

  • Clubs are powerful. but confusing, but generally
    • Members – Private conversations & can start rooms etc
    • Followers – Just notified of public rooms
  • Hard to process difference between Members / Followers 
  • We updated the size off community by combining these numbers, to save having to invite. all followers to be members 
  • Change we considered – simplify the whole thing to be only members
    • Choose anyone can join for broadcast show
    • Choose people have to apply to join – you approve – for communities and private organisations 
    • How do we help people convert member / follow list – all or some to convert ?
    • Is there admin level not owner of the club who can run rooms?
    • What does applying to join club look like? 
    • What about paying to join club? 
    • Need. to consider smooth transition & avoid legacy issues
    • Feedback for us form on  : support.clubhouse.com

Welcome rooms

If we want to run welcome rooms – how can we make sure new users can find them? Or do they have to stumble across them? 

  • Wrote and let us know so we can help you be successful
    • INTERNATIONAL : international@clubhouse.com 
    • US USERS : Feedback form 

Speaker queuing

Could you create moderator tool to stop in and out privileges? TO stop people jumping. out while they wait. to speak on stage

  • We could change order – if you leave. you join end of the queues
    • Got to consider connectivity issues / taking call
  • Hand raise queue does this not stage 
  •  

Track room admin activities

Add feature to track moderator actions after room ends and make available to room admins? 

  • Should this be public
  • Mods should feel comfortable to take actions they feel right
  • Don’t make people mods!!
    • DOES NOT increase reach of room 
    • Does pin people to top of room
    • Has become show of respect 
    • They can end room / remove you

Own rooms upcoming for me

Upcoming today in hallway – Next 3 events I have RSVPed. but can’t see my own rooms there? Could. you add this? 

  • Seems crazy 

Geolocation connectivity

How about business features in location to connect and negotiate? 

  • What would we need to do to support that? 
  • Could do city name in title now & invite other users
  • Geolocation seems to be missing part of this 
  • Please let us know more 

Larger mod/speaker mic button

When mod in large room – straining. to mute. /unmute. could mic be larger 

  • Never considered
  • Good for accessibility

Audio in stereo

Updates for roadmap on audio – stereo is needed for musicians like me. 

  • Justin built WebRTC – Deep into audio 
  • We are actively working on it 
  • More updates soon
  • High quality audio will help in this case – improves your audio for others

Clubhouse coins or currency

Adding any coins or currency coming. forClubhouse natively? 

  • Build so we grow as creators are 
    • In room tipping
    • Subscriptions 
    • Paid events
  • Economy favours the creator

Membership only event

Using clubs & club only events and sorting sign up membership. Any tools to build membership subscriptions? 

  • Yes we are 
  • Looking forward to this

Brand integrations

What are most effective ways brands used Clubhouse & who should we reach out to?

  • Reach out partnerships@clubhouse.com
  • Time Magazine / Bloomberg – showing humans behind brands 
  • Brands tapping creators to host rooms / host their rooms? 
  • Bumble created Bumble Hive – Community members who are relationship experts on hand 
  • Pedigree did doghouse room to adopt pets 
  • Product / Book Launches / Movie Launches  etc

Sign in methods

Any ways to lo.  in using other methods with password coming? 

  • Imagine so in future
  • Right now – enforces real identity
  • Prevents as much spam and quicker setting up lots of accounts 

Search by mobile number

Would. you allow search user by mobile number ?

  • Privacy first
  • Got to be thoughtful and done well 
  • Opt in not opt out 
  • Ask their username / share link

Sleep timer

Can you add sleep timer for Clubhouse please? 

  • Sleep timer doesn’t work on Clubhouse 
  • ‘tucking them in’ – remove a sleeper from stage to audience
  • Understand why you would want it
