JAKARTA - In recent weeks, cross-platform netizens and media have been busy discussing the Clubhouse application. The level of popularity of the audi0-chat platform increased when SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk was invited as a speaker during one of the sessions.

In the one-and-a-half hour conversation, it was clear how Musk held discussion sessions with other users via the Clubhouse app. It is known that Musk was not the only one who was invited. This application even invited the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg.

So, what is the Clubhouse application? Then why is this application so busy being discussed by netizens and is considered the next generation of social media platforms?

Get acquainted with the Clubhouse Application

Starting to open its services in 2020, the Clubhouse app has been fast building a reputation as the best platform for people to meet, chat and share ideas.

Clubhouse is a platform that provides discussion services virtually on specific topics. Other users can also participate in the discussion event. The difference is, the content is presented not in the form of videos, but videos. No chat rooms, or pictures.

Like attending a Ted Talk event, users can share with other users who are also listening to the ongoing discussion. Users can also add other users as friends. However, there is no information regarding the functions or features that the account owner can use.

The more topics that are followed, the more discussion program recommendations have been adjusted according to preferences.

In terms of design, the appearance of the discussion room on the Clubhouse application is actually simple. Only consists of the user's profile photo and the name of the account.

It's just that, the advantages of this application compared to other virtual rooms, especially video conferencing platforms, Clubhouse can accommodate up to 5,000 participants. The number is fantastic.

When the discussion session is over, the moderator ends it, then the discussion room will be closed automatically. Unfortunately, users cannot access recorded discussions. As a result, each discussion session seems exclusive, because it can only be accessed once.

In addition, Clubhouse also does not provide editing tools such as sound effects, transition filters, to placing ad snippets. This means that this application does not yet provide a monetation scheme for any content offered.

Who Uses the Clubhouse?

Until now, Clubhouse has invited various international celebrities. Starting from Oprah, Kevin Hart, Drake, Chris Rock, to Ashton Kutcher. Apart from being a filler in the discussion, celebrities are also free to open their own discussion sessions.

Meeting and a forum with celebrities and popular figures is one of the bargaining power of this application. And according to Refinery29 data, the new Clubhouse app is used by 3,500 people from all over the world!

How to Join the Clubhouse?

Unfortunately, until now the Clubhouse application membership is still limited. In fact, when you ask the question above, chances are the answer is "can't".

This is because the Clubhouse application is only available for invitees only. If someone wants to join, he must get an invitation from other people who have already registered as members.

Indeed, you can download this application via the App Store. However, if you don't have a recommendation, the app will put you on a 'Waiting List'. Keep in mind, there is no guarantee if you will get an account listed on the waiting list.

Because of the popularity and difficulty of accessing this application, invitations to become Clubhouse users are even being sold!

Indeed, the CEO of Clubhouse, Paul Davidson, once stated that he would open access to applications for everyone - including Android phone users. However, for the time being, there has been no official statement that has been obtained by the VOI team.
