Hey! We’re working hard to add people to Clubhouse as fast as we can, but right now you need an invite to sign up. Anyone can get one by joining the waitlist, or by asking an existing user for one.
We really appreciate your patience and can’t wait to welcome you. Thank you!
ABOUT ClubHouz (Unofficial Clubhouse):
ClubHouz (Unofficial Clubhouse) is a space for casual, drop-in audio conversations—with friends and other interesting people around the world.
Go online anytime to chat with the people you follow, or hop in as a listener and hear what others are talking about.
Okay, so what is it?
Here’s the gist: Imagine you have an app on your phone that lets you listen in on other people’s live conversations. But not in a creepy way; these people want to be heard. They may even be famous, or at least interesting or knowledgeable (no guarantee, however). And you may be given the opportunity to join the chat. Think of it as an audio-chat social network. Or as PCMag’s Jordan Minor says in our review, “What if Twitter was a podcast you lived inside of?”
So there are no pictures or video?
No. Only profile pics for each user.
Where can I get the Clubhouse app?
Clubhouse is currently available on iOS and Android. Any iPhone and android users can download the app, which is where you listen to conversations and how you participate.
Cool, so I can just sign up, right?
Nope. At the time of this writing,you need an invitation from an existing Clubhouse user to get access. Every new user gets two invites, and they earn more as they use the app. Ask your friends if they have one. You could buy an invite on eBay or try a “pay-it-forward” invite chains, but be wary of invite scams. It might be best to wait for Clubhouse to open to the world.
