Clubhouse App Updates – August 2021


Clubhouse update release date – Tues, Aug 17

Clubhouse Update News:

Hi all — Happy Tuesday!

Here’s what’s new in this week’s clubhouse update release: ♣️

We’re making some one-time changes to clubs — to simplify how they work and make them easier for you to manage.

We’ve been talking about this for a while at Town Hall and on our blog, so hopefully you know the details, but if not, here is a reminder! We’re simplifying things by eliminating club “Followers,” so there is a single relationship you can have to a club: “Membership.”If you’re the Admin of a club, you can choose to make your membership “Open” (meaning anyone can join as a Member) or “By Approval” (meaning you individually approve all Members).

We’re creating a new role called “Leaders” to help club Admins make their clubs successful. Leaders can start rooms and schedule events that all club members can see, but can’t edit club settings, edit the club name, or add/remove members. Admins can choose which trusted club members to designate as Leaders.When people visit your profile, they’ll see the clubs in which you’re an Admin, Leader, or Member. We’re committed to making this a smooth transition for all of the club Admins out there, so we put together an FAQ to answer your questions and help you get migrated!

🟢 See who’s online — and start a room with them — directly from the Backchannel. Now you can see a green dot when people you’re chatting with are online, and a new button you can tap to start an audio room with them, without leaving your message threads. This feature is available in both 1:1 and group chats.

📥 Archive messages. This has been one of our most requested features ever since we launched the Backchannel. From your inbox, just swipe left on any message to archive it! This works in both your main Chats tabs and your Requests tab. You can access your archived messages anytime by tapping the “…” at the top of the full-screen inbox view

🔔 Fewer, better notifications. We rolled out some improvements that will result in us sending you 18% fewer notifications, without impacting room visits for creators. This mean 44% fewer notifications than a month ago, with more improvements to come. 🙂

That’s all for this week. As always, thank you for being part of Clubhouse! 🙏🏽
