Clubhouse app – what is it and how do I get an invite?

IT'S the exclusive new social media platform everyone's talking about, intended to open up discussions around the world.

But access to Clubhouse is harder than you think – and during its beta phase of testing, it's strictly invite only.

What is Clubhouse?

Clubhouse is an audio-only social media app allowing casual drop-in talks between people from all over the world.

Those who can get inside will find a variety of topics being discussed in chat rooms, with people from all over hosting talks on subjects like music, film, culture, race, tech, and beauty.

According to its creators, “it’s a place to meet with friends and with new people around the world—to tell stories, ask questions, debate, learn, and have impromptu conversations on thousands of different topics.” 

How do I get an invite?

Each new member is granted one invite, so your invitation is likely to come from a friend already on the app.

If you’re an iPhone user, you can download the app and reserve a username.

But Clubhouse insists “it’s not intended to be exclusive” saying it is working to make the app available to all.

A notice on the app store currently states: "We're working hard to add people to Clubhouse as fast as we can, but right now you need an invite to sign up.

"Anyone can get one by joining the waitlist, or by asking an existing user for one."

Who is on Clubhouse?

Celebrities are already enjoying the exclusive benefits of Clubhouse.

Current known users include Kanye West, Drake, Oprah, Ashton Kutcher and Kevin Hart.

Tiffany Haddish and Jared Leto are also said to have joined.
