Ready to start a Room?
There are three types of rooms you can create or participate in on Clubhouse:
Welcome Rooms are created when new users sign up. If someone in your friend group joins Clubhouse, you may get a notification to join a Welcome Room—a private room where you and 2-3 other friends of the new user can help orient them to Clubhouse. You can also open the room to the public. If you see welcome rooms in your feed, feel free to jump in and say hi!
Anyone can join an Open Room. They're popular for hosting public conversations, shows, or meeting lots of new people. This is the default setting for rooms on Clubhouse.
It's nice to have an audience, but sometimes you might prefer to have more intimate conversations with your social circle. Social Rooms are only for the people in your Clubhouse circle. So that's your followers and the followers of any of the speakers. To expand the list of people who can be invited, add one of your followers as a moderator, and they'll be able to invite the people in their circles to the room. It's like throwing a Clubhouse party!
Club rooms (NEW!).
You can open a room within a Club so that Club members can join you to discuss relevant topics. You can always open the room to anyone on Clubhouse, which is a great way to expand club membership.
Closed (or private) Rooms are only for people you invite. We hope that Closed Rooms will be helpful when you are looking to have more private conversations, or want to talk with a smaller group but haven't yet set up a club for it. When you start a Closed Room, you can always ping in more people or open it up to either a Social or Open Room - it's a good way to get a conversation started!
