How does the ClubHouse app work?
The most important factor that makes the Clubhouse app special is its audio-only format. Users don’t need to think about eye-contact, what they are wearing and the emotions are conveyed with a voice. You can have a healthy discussion with other users and all participants get to give their opinion.
To join a room in Clubhouse, just select any room that you like by looking at the topic of the group. Once you are in the room you can select “Raise your hand” option given at the bottom right to let the admins know that you would like to contribute your thoughts in audio format with the viewers. And once you are done you can leave the room by selecting the “Leave room quietly” to exit the room.
Clubhouse is a fun-to-use app and you can express your thoughts on any subject of your choice without worrying about the way you look and everyone will respect your opinion here. Do give it a try.
