Clubhouse has been making slow and gradual strides in making its platform available to users across the globe. At the time of its debut back in 2020, Clubhouse was available only to iOS users on an invite-only basis. Then last year, the company rolled out its Android app. It also made its platform openly available to all users across the globe. Now, the company is taking a step further by making its platform available on the web. Also Read - Delhi Police sends notice to Clubhouse, Google over targeting Muslim women in a group chat
Clubhouse has announced that it is rolling out support for web listening on its platform. With this update, Clubhouse users will be able to listen to the Clubhouse rooms by their favourite creators on the web via their phones and laptops. What’s interesting is that Clubhouse users don’t need to download an app or log into their accounts to listen to a room. They can simply go to Clubhouse’s web-based platform to join in a conversation. Creators, however, will still have to go to the Clubhouse app to start a new room.

Improvements to Share button
In addition to rolling out support for web listening, Clubhouse is also rolling out improvements to its Share button. Clubhouse said that it is rolling out the ability to tap Share on Clubhouse. With this feature, followers of a user will get to know about a room that the user is listening to. The company said that now when the users tap the ‘Share’ button at the bottom of a live room or a Replay, they will see three options – Share via a social network, copy the link to share via a messaging app and Share on Clubhouse. Tapping the third button will let them share the room with their followers. Users will also be able to add their comments while sharing a room with their followers. The followers, on the other hand, will see the shared room in their Hallway and join it if the room is live.
