Clubhouse, one of the fastest-growing social media platforms, is working on a new “Waves” feature, according to The Verge. The new invite feature will be focused more on the casual side of the app, than on the content creation. Screenshots released by researcher Jane Manchum Wong show that the feature will enable users to wave at each other, and might be intended for Clubhouse’s social rooms. However, no official statement has yet been released.
The latest addition to live audio apps is Spotify’s Greenroom. The app has been downloaded a total of 141,000 on iOS and 100,000 on android. It will be competing with the giants like Clubhouse, Airtime, Yalla etc. Any comments on third-party download estimates have been declined by Spotify. It acquired Locker Room maker Betty Labs to display content on music, culture, and sports. Spotify also launched a Creator Fund to help fuel the app content.
The recently popular audio chatting app, Clubhouse, will introduce payment features in India. This will enable users to pay creators who host shows. They are also working to comply with the new IT rules. The clubhouse has been downloaded over 1mn times in India and over 2.6mn globally. The company is also looking to launch tips and subscriptions in India with no fixed timeline mentioned. The new feature will help creators monetise their content.
