So what are you listening to? Or you haven’t got an invite to the most happening thing on social media yet?

Clubhouse is the buzz right now, and no, it is not another alternative to Twitter or WhatsApp after all the brouhaha over privacy and nationalism. According to Rohan Seth and Paul Davison, the founders of the app, 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,” says the intro for the app on iOS App Store. And yes, as of now, access is only by invite, and sorry, Android fans, for the time being Clubhouse is an only-iPhone affair. The developers, Alpha Exploration Co., say they are ‘working hard’ to add people as fast as they can.

Here’s what we can tell you about Clubhouse right now:

  • What is Clubhouse? A space for casual, drop-in audio conversations – with friends and other interesting people around the world. You can go online anytime to chat with the people you follow, or hop in as a listener and hear what others are talking about, on a variety of topics.
  • Founded by: Rohan Seth and Paul Davison
  • Developed by: Alpha Exploration Co.
  • Download from: iOS App Store
  • Sign up: Only by invite (You can download without an invite as well, and reserve an username till you get the invite)
  • What is different: Listen to the buzz is the catchword. Entirely audio-based, one-to-one, one-to-many, whichever you like.

It is all about CONVERSATIONS:

  • You can find conversations about: Hustle (Stocks, Pitch Practice, Entrepreneurship etc.,) Entertainment, Languages, Arts, Tech, Life, Identity, Hanging Out, Sports, Knowledge, Wellness, Places, Faith, World Affairs and so on.
  • How it started, in the words of the founders: “The two of us met back in 2011 through a mutual friend, and we connected over a shared love of social products. Back then, Rohan had been working on ways to help friends find each other in cities, and Paul was building an app called Highlight to help people form friendships with others around them. Over the next ten years we both kept working on social products—experimenting with new apps, failing, and starting again… After a lot of iteration in the audio space, we launched Clubhouse in March of last year. Our goal was to build a social experience that felt more human—where instead of posting, you could gather with other people and talk. Our north star was to create something where you could close the app at the end of the session feeling better than you did when you opened it, because you had deepened friendships, met new people and learned.”
