How to use the Clubhouse on your first login

Currently, the Clubhouse can only be accessed by people who receive an invitation from users of the platform. If you don’t have an invitation, what you can do initially is reserve a username and wait for the application to authorize your entry. To do this, enter your phone number, a code that will be sent by SMS, full name and the sign you want to use on the social network:

Then, when your account is accepted or a friend sends you an invitation, the first action the app will ask for is that you select your interests. There are dozens of themes to choose from. The choices will directly impact the rooms (or clubs, as in-app calls) that the Clubhouse will suggest to you.

Remember that you can change your interests at any time. For that, just access your profileby clicking on your photo in the upper right corner of the home screen. Then go to gear icon top right and then select Interests (Interests) in the list of settings:

How to navigate the Clubhouse

On the Clubhouse home screen, you will see room suggestions happening right now and others that are already scheduled to happen (more on that later). At the top of the interface, you have a set of buttons available:

At the magnifying glass icon, you can search for users and rooms to find what you want and start following friends and influencers. At the letter icon, the user can invite others to the social network. Already in bell icon notifications received are stored.

Finally, the calendar icon displays scheduled events. If you’re interested in any of the suggestions, touch the bell icon next to the conversation’s name to receive a notification at the time of the event. Confirm your intention by touching Follow (Follow) in the window that appears:

How to Follow a Person in the Clubhouse

The procedure for following someone in the Clubhouse is very similar to that of other social networks. On the home screen, touch the magnifying glass icon in the upper left corner and, in the next window, type the name of the user you want to follow. Access your profile and tap the button Follow (Follow):

How to Open a Clubhouse Room

Clubhouse conversations always take place inside rooms, which you can create or access. In all, there are three types of rooms, as explained in the Clubhouse article: everything about the new social network:

  • Open: rooms open to any type of person interested in a subject. The creator of the room (and whoever else he designates) acts as a moderator and you need to ask permission from that user to intervene in the conversation.

  • Social: this type of room is visible and accessible to all users who follow the creator of the space;

  • Closed: entirely closed and private rooms; you can only view and access them with an invitation from the creator of the room or someone else who is already inside the room.

To create a room in the Clubhouse, tap the green button Start a room (Start a room) at the bottom of the main application screen. Then, select the type of room that will be created by tapping the corresponding icon and then Let’s go (Come on). It is important to give a name to the room in the field Add a topic (Add a theme):

You will be the moderator of the room and will be able to appoint other people to act in that same role. Now just wait for people to enter the room for the chat to begin.

How to join a room at the Clubhouse

Based on your interests, the Clubhouse home screen always displays rooms that are currently open that can attract you. Enough touch on one of them to access and start listening to what is being discussed.

In doing so, you always enter the room as a listener. To ask to speak, tap the raised hand icon. You can also use the + icon (plus sign) to call other people into the room. To exit, select Leave quietly (leave silently):

Notice in the image above that some participants in the room have a green icon next to your name. This indicates that you are a moderator.
