Definition: Clubhouse

An audio-chat social network app which launched in 2020. Users of Clubhouse can listen to and/or join in with conversations, interviews, and discussions on different subjects in virtual rooms or ‘clubs’.

Unlike most social networks, content on Clubhouse is not permanent as conversations are not saved when they end. People can, of course, still record the conversation outside of the app.

The experience has been likened to a live podcast or a conference call with a small set of people talking while everyone else listens. The app has been used by many celebrities, which has contributed to its cult-like status.

It is currently only available on iOS and by invite. The creators have reportedly said they will open the app out to everyone eventually.


Not to be confused with

The Clubhouse project management tool.
