Clubhouse is always on the lookout for upgrading new features. This time, after rolling out Spatial Audio and Wave, the drop-in audio app introduced Universal Search, Clips, and Replay.
Now, let’s get into details about the three new features. Shall we?
Previously, Clubhouse didn’t have the option for searching rooms. But with Universal Search, now you can easily search for people, live rooms, and upcoming events! Available on iOS and Android, this feature will enable you to “find your friends more quickly, discover amazing clubs and events related to any breaking news or nerdy interest, and find rooms about specific things happening in the world right now”, states Clubhouse Blog. For now, Universal Search will remain in the Explore tab but later on, it will be shifted to the hallway.
With the aim to help creators easily share their moments and grow their audience, Clubhouse launched Clips. For the time being, it’s rolled out to a small group of creators in the form of the beta version. They will be able to share thirty seconds clips of public rooms, enabling more users to notice their club. It’s available on iOs for now and will be soon launched on Android.
Clubhouse Blog mentions its working format:
- “When you start a room, you can choose whether you want clips enabled. They’ll be on by default for open/public rooms, and you can toggle them off anytime. They are not available for private, social or club rooms.
- If you’ve enabled Clips, people will see a new icon (✄), which they can tap anytime to grab a Clip of the past 30 seconds. This lets them share a preview of your room with others, or capture an incredible moment that just happened.
- People can share Clips of your show to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, iMessage, or WhatsApp — and even save them to their camera rolls for quick editing first.”
Clubhouse is soon going to roll out Replays to make it easier for the creators to grow. It will ensure the audience have a new way to experience live rooms on the app. You will have the option to enable it or not during the starting of a room. If you choose to keep it on, not only will your room be discoverable on Clubhouse for as long as you like, but will also be available for you to download and share anywhere.
As per Clubhouse Blog, “Replays make it trivially easy to create great audio content, get discovered by others, and grow your audience over time. There are a lot of details we want to get right here, so we are going to be testing and continuing to develop this feature in the wild for a few more weeks, and plan to roll out access to creators and community members beginning in October.”
