The clubhouse has lots of competition of large companies that want to own a live audio space, but can get ahead in a certain way. The company is launching a new music space that could make it a better place to play and listen to live music before then. An entry reported by Amazon to that space and to twitter the introduction of “flag states” has begun where musicians could also host performances. Spotify also has its own live audio app.
If you are a musician in the Clubhouse or you love to listen to live music in the application, the new music mode “optimizes the Clubhouse to transmit your music with high quality and excellent stereo sound”, company blog post. The clubhouse doesn’t tell you what high quality means, but it also mentions that you can now plug in professional devices like a USB microphone or mixing console and use them while streaming. The clubhouse added surround sound in late August., making conversations sound more like a crowded room than a constant voice call.
To easily activate music mode, tap the three dots in the upper right corner of the room, select Sound quality, and then tap Music. However, if you just want to listen to the show, you don’t have to do anything about it, just sit back and enjoy the stereo sound from your headphones, speakers, or phone.
The clubhouse also noted that its recently introduced Clips feature: allowing you to take a 30 second recording – stereo sound is also supported, so if you choose to record a portion of the presentation in music mode, the sound quality will remain the same. Music mode will initially only be available on iOS, but Clubhouse says the Android launch will follow soon.
In addition to the music room, the Clubhouse has also updated its search functions. The platform now displays the search bar in a more convenient location at the top of the hall. And add a plus, you can also greet your friends Directly from the search bar, the feature allows you to quickly invite friends to a live sound room.
Amazon is far from being Clubhouse’s only live audio competition. The clubhouse probably learned last year when Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and even Spotify just created their own versions of voice chat rooms. All of this came at a time when the Clubhouse was still only in guest status, making it difficult for the app to grow. But now that the app is booming, Clubhouse wants to keep as many benefits as possible.
