Audio social network Clubhouse canceled special invitations for registration of new users. Previously, those who wish had to receive an invite from existing community members or wait for their turn on the waiting list. The decision to cancel the previous rules was explained by the completion of beta testing and the willingness to proceed with the further development of the social network.
The innovations were announced by the founders of the voice social network Paul Davison and Rohan Seth on the Clubhouse blog. They noted that they eliminated the waiting list system and allowed everyone to join the community. The new rules apply to owners of all devices – both iOS and Android.
According to the founders of Clubhouse, the invite system “was an important part” of the app's early history. They explained the need for invitations and waiting lists by the importance of the gradual promotion of the social network. At the same time, Davison and Seth emphasized that they have always wanted the Clubhouse to be an open community so that everyone can have access to meaningful conversations.
A representative of the Clubhouse, in an interview with The Verge, clarified that there are now about 10 million people on the waiting list. Over time, they will gradually gain access to the application.
Clubhouse noted that since the beginning of 2021, the Clubhouse team has increased from eight to 58 people, the number of daily working rooms has grown from 50,000 to 500,000. After the launch of the Android version of the application in May 2021, the number of social network users increased by 10 million people. On average, each listener spends more than an hour a day at the Clubhouse.
As of April 2021, Clubhouse was estimated at $ 4 billion. This figure was achieved by the company after another round of financing, in which the fund of Russian businessman Yuri Milner took part.
