Clubhouse is a live audio platform that allows users to connect with people and join groups based on their interests. The app which was initially available only for iOS users was made available for Android users in May. The company also ended the invite-only system recently and made the app available for all users. The Android app currently has more than 10 million downloads on the Google Play Store.

On Clubhouse, a ‘Room’ is where the conversation take place. An Open room is one where anyone can join the conversation, while in a closed room users can limit it to their select friends or followers. Here’s how you can start your own room on the platform. Keep in mind that by default all rooms are set to open on the platform, and you have to change the setting when starting the room.
