Clubhouse seems to be engaged on a brand new option to invite individuals to audio rooms in its app, based on screenshots shared by researcher Jane Manchum Wong. The invite function, referred to as “Waves,” is targeted on the extra informal, social facet of Clubhouse, somewhat than the creator-focused reside exhibits which have had the corporate’s consideration.
Primarily based off the screenshots Wong shared, Waves enables you to wave at pals —with a button similar to the hand in Clubhouse’s brand — to ask them to talk. In the event that they reply, they mechanically get added to an audio room so you possibly can discuss. A spokesperson declined to touch upon Wong’s discovery, however it appears probably that the function is meant for Clubhouse’s social rooms (considered one of several audio room types the corporate provides).
