Conversations in Clubhouse take place in rooms, and this is where all the magic happens. Within each room, you can be a moderator, a speaker, or a listener.
- Moderators. When you start a room in Clubhouse, you are the moderator. This means you are a speaker with the special power to add, mute, and remove other speakers. You can access these tools by tapping on the photo of any user in the room. The best moderators tend to thoughtfully curate the speaker group, actively manage the conversation, and consider the audience experience.
- Speakers. Speakers are the people in a room who have the ability to talk. By default, the person who starts the room is a speaker, and so is the first person to join them on stage. Everyone else joins in the audience as a listener, and must be invited up if they wish to speak, or listeners can raise their hand to ask to speak. Move yourself off the stage by tapping on your own photo.
- Listeners. When you tap to join an existing conversation, you enter in the audience on mute. This means you are a listener! As a listener on Clubhouse, you should relax and enjoy the conversation.
