Clubhouse is not just an app with which you can attend conversations by famous people. It has different types of rooms that you can use, including rooms where you can have intimate, private conversations with friends – and in the future, you can invite friends to chat by “waving” at them. Jane Manchun Wong, known for reverse engineering programs for finding hidden experimental features, has discovered that Clubhouse is working on a new way of inviting contacts to conduct an audio call.
If the feature gets a wide version, Clubhouse will add a “Wave” button to user profiles similar to the Wave button you see when you first connect with someone on Messenger. By tapping on it, a friend will let you know you want to chat, and the app will only open a room for you if they respond.
Clubhouse started out as an all-in-one audio app for iOS in which you have to join a waiting list to get in. Over the past few months, however, it has released an app for Android and opened its doors to everyone. Celebrities like Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg used to use it as a venue to hold conversations in open rooms where users could have public conversations with listeners. However, this feature can make it more compelling for more casual use and can convince users not to jump on another app when it’s time to talk to family and friends.
