Clubhouse News – Clubhouse update for November 2021

iOS Release Notes👋🏽 Thank you so much for being part of the Clubhouse community!

Below is a list of what we shipped in each recent release. Weds, 11/17

Hey, happy Wednesday! We have some new stuff for you to play with today. Closed CaptioningWe want Clubhouse to be a welcoming place where everyone can enjoy the magic that happens when people get together and talk with one another. Closed Captioning mode within Live rooms makes that possible for more people. It starts rolling out today with support for English. We’re also releasing Captions in beta for Cantonese, Mandarin Chinese, Yue Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Arabic, Russian and Turkish.

To enable Closed Captioning, click on the “…” button within a live room and select “Show Captions”. Check it out and please send us any feedback!

Better Discovery for Replays

There’s nothing like experiencing the moment in real time, but replays have helped creators of all types build a catalog of their best rooms for people to enjoy as if they were live, but later. Now we’re also making it easier to find these replays as a user. Yay!

Replays in Search

Replay rooms now show up as a result when you search! If you heard about a great room that you missed, just search for the title, kick back and listen in.

Replay Carousels

We love the hallway because it’s so much more than a feed — at its best, it really feels like walking through the world and seeing all kinds of people around you having wildly diverse conversations.

Today, a new crowd is arriving at the party: carousels featuring replays from the best rooms in your network!

It’s also really good exercise for your finger to swipe sideways instead of just downwards, scientifically, this is a known fact. Enjoy!

Clubhouse News – Clubhouse App Updates

iOS Release Notes

👋🏽 Thank you so much for being part of the Clubhouse community!

Below is a list of what we shipped in each recent release

Mon, 11/8👋 Heads up! We recently updated our ToS, Privacy Policy and Community Guidelines to explain how some of our new features (like Replays) work!

By continuing to use Clubhouse, you are acknowledging the new policies and agreeing to abide by them. Thank you!

Hi all – Happy Monday! We have a huge release for you today. Here is what’s new! Replays!A Clubhouse room is much more than a live podcast. It’s a shared space where people gather and community happens. Creators take questions from the room. They share links to the things that the group is discussing. New people discover the room from the hallway and join midway through. Friends talk for hours about all sorts of topics, and the final room looks nothing like it did when it started. When we set out to build Replays, we wanted to create something that captures the magic and energy of a live Clubhouse room, in ways that non-interactive audio streams alone cannot. Today, we’re starting to roll out Replays on both iOS and Android. Think of it as live, but later — and available to everyone.

Replays are an optional feature that creators can choose to toggle on or off for any public room. When Replays are enabled, anyone on Clubhouse can replay the entire experience whenever they like. They’ll get to see the same elements of a live room like Leave Quietly, and watch the dynamic of the stage and audience shift and evolve throughout the discussion, including PTRs, mic taps, and all the special moments that only happen here. Here are some of the special features you’ll find: Pin links to any segment A few weeks ago we launched Pinned Links, which let room mods pin a link to the top of the room, and update them whenever they like to reflect the changing conversation. This lets them play games, shout out their sponsors, link to polls and surveys, share products, host fundraisers, sell tickets to a real-life event, and gain subscribers for their podcasts or newsletters. With Replays, Pinned Links remain fully interactive, so they update throughout the course of the room, allowing creators to share relevant content and realize value long after the room has ended. Skip to the next speaker In other apps you can skip forward 30 seconds if you’d like to speed things up. This is great, but Clubhouse is about people, and sometimes it’s nice to have more control. With Replays, you can skip to the next speaker. This lets you tap through to your favorite people and focus the room on the parts that matter most to you. You can also pause, play, scrub, clip and listen at 1.5x or 2x. See who’s joining With podcasts, it’s hard to know your audience. With Clubhouse, the live experience is defined by the people in the room. There is something special about seeing the friends around you and caring about who is listening. With Replays it’s no different. As a creator, you can see the people in the room, share that experience with them, and connect with them — even if they listened after the fact. If you ever want to hide yourself from the audience, you can do that by tapping the “…”. Download the source fileRoom creators will have the ability to download the audio so they can edit it and use it wherever they want — as a podcast, a clip on YouTube, an Instagram story, a TikTok video, an embed in their article or newsletter, or anywhere else. The replay will also be discoverable within Clubhouse — from club pages, speakers’ profiles (unless they choose to hide it), search (starting next week), and more. Total Attendee CountA final thing that we’re excited about with Replays is the rollout of Total Attendee Count. You know what’s almost as much fun as saying you had 20 or 200 or 2,000 people in a room at the same time? Being able to share that 20,000 people joined your room over the course of the day! Beginning today, room creators will be able to see (and share) cumulative counts of all the people who came through a room. It’s the first of many new analytics features that we’ll be adding for room creators in the months ahead. Replays will start going live today on iOS and Android. In the meantime, you may already see a few Replays out in the wild. A special thanks to all the amazing Clubhouse creators who helped us test the feature! That’s it for now! As always, thank you for being part of Clubhouse! 🙏🏽

iOS – Tues, 11/2

Clubhouse Update / Clubhouse News

Wed, Oct 27

Hi all!

Today we have a little big feature that we are so excited to share with you…📌🔗

Introducing Pinned Links!

Pinned Links allow you to pin a link to the top of your room. If you’re the room moderator, just tap the “…” menu in the upper right, then tap “Pin a Link.” Any moderator can change or remove the link anytime. We suspect that people will use Pinned Links in all sorts of fun ways — like playing games, running polls, and sharing links to YouTube videos.

Just as importantly, we’re excited to see Pinned Links help room creators drive people to subscribe to their Substack, download their podcast, read their book, go see them at The Laugh Factory, discover their new single, buy their product, or support their Patreon or GoFundMe page.

You can learn more on our Pinned Links blog post, or just start a room and try it out! We can’t wait to see how you use it.That’s it for now. As always, thank you for being part of Clubhouse! 🙏🏽

Trump to launch new social media platform TRUTH Social – BBC News

Former US President Donald Trump has announced plans to launch a new social media network, called TRUTH Social.
He said the platform would “stand up to the tyranny of big tech”, accusing them of silencing opposing voices in the US.
Social media played a pivotal role in Mr Trump’s bid for the White House and was his favourite means of communication as president.
But Mr Trump was banned from Twitter and suspended from Facebook after his supporters stormed the US Capitol.
Social media firms were under pressure throughout Mr Trump’s presidency to ban him, with his posts criticised as insulting, inflammatory or peddling outright falsehoods.
Last year Twitter and Facebook began deleting some of his posts or labelling them as misleading, such as one in which he said Covid was “less lethal” than the flu.
They took the decision to ban or suspend Mr Trump after the January riots, which followed a speech in which he made baseless claims of electoral fraud.
Responding to the riots, Mr Trump called those at the Capitol “patriots” and showed no sign of accepting the result of the election, prompting Twitter and Facebook to rule that it was too risky to allow him to continue to use their sites.
‘Your favourite president has been silenced’
Since then he and his advisers have hinted that they were planning to create a rival social media site.
Earlier this year, he launched From the Desk of Donald J Trump, which was often referred to as a blog.
The website was permanently shut down less than a month after it launched after attracting only a fraction of the audience he would have expected through established sites.
His senior aide Jason Miller said it was “just auxiliary to the broader efforts we have and are working on”.
An early version of his latest venture, TRUTH Social, will be open to invited guests next month, and will have a “nationwide rollout” within the first three months of 2022, according to a statement by Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG).
“We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favourite American President has been silenced,” wrote Mr Trump.
“Everyone asks me why doesn’t someone stand up to Big Tech? Well, we will be soon!” he added.

Donald Trump’s team is making a big deal of this. Yet there’s no indication that the new company has a working platform yet. The new site is just a registration page.
He wants to create a platform that rivals Twitter or Facebook, but that simply won’t happen.
By its very nature the platform is overtly politicised. It is not going to be a talking shop of ideas like Twitter, or a place the whole family is on like Facebook.
What it could be is a more successful version of other ‘free speech’ social media platforms like Parler or Gab.
Donald Trump clearly wants his megaphone back. He thinks this might be his ticket. But if he’s really going to be heard, he needs the Big Tech platforms to let him back on – and that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

Clubhouse Latest Update News – Changes to Clubhouse Clubs

Clubhouse update release date – Tues, Aug 17

Clubhouse Update News:

Hi all — Happy Tuesday!

Here’s what’s new in this week’s clubhouse update release: ♣️

We’re making some one-time changes to clubs — to simplify how they work and make them easier for you to manage.

We’ve been talking about this for a while at Town Hall and on our blog, so hopefully you know the details, but if not, here is a reminder! We’re simplifying things by eliminating club “Followers,” so there is a single relationship you can have to a club: “Membership.”If you’re the Admin of a club, you can choose to make your membership “Open” (meaning anyone can join as a Member) or “By Approval” (meaning you individually approve all Members).

We’re creating a new role called “Leaders” to help club Admins make their clubs successful. Leaders can start rooms and schedule events that all club members can see, but can’t edit club settings, edit the club name, or add/remove members. Admins can choose which trusted club members to designate as Leaders.When people visit your profile, they’ll see the clubs in which you’re an Admin, Leader, or Member. We’re committed to making this a smooth transition for all of the club Admins out there, so we put together an FAQ to answer your questions and help you get migrated!

🟢 See who’s online — and start a room with them — directly from the Backchannel. Now you can see a green dot when people you’re chatting with are online, and a new button you can tap to start an audio room with them, without leaving your message threads. This feature is available in both 1:1 and group chats.

📥 Archive messages. This has been one of our most requested features ever since we launched the Backchannel. From your inbox, just swipe left on any message to archive it! This works in both your main Chats tabs and your Requests tab. You can access your archived messages anytime by tapping the “…” at the top of the full-screen inbox view

🔔 Fewer, better notifications. We rolled out some improvements that will result in us sending you 18% fewer notifications, without impacting room visits for creators. This mean 44% fewer notifications than a month ago, with more improvements to come. 🙂

That’s all for this week. As always, thank you for being part of Clubhouse! 🙏🏽

Facebook’s New ‘Community Help’ Lets Neighbors Assist Each Other Amid COVID-19

Image via Facebook

Facebook has unveiled a new feature called ‘Community Help’, which allows US residents to volunteer to get groceries on their neighbors’ behalves, or have someone else within their vicinity to run errands when they are not able to. It also lets users donate to fundraisers amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The feature displays posts within a 50-mile radius of the users’ location. The concept is alike social network Nextdoor, which unifies neighbors to help each other out by picking up medical supplies for others, get quick updates on the virus and exchange items including toilet paper and disinfecting agents.

Facebook noticed that people were communicating with each other and asking for help on its platform. Therefore, the new tool was created to bridge those who need assistance and those who wish to offer help.
