They note that adding users in waves integrating new users into the app’s community through town halls and oriented sessions helped Clubhouse grow at a healthy rate without breaking but we have always wanted Clubhouse to be open. You can create social, closed, and private audio chats in the clubhouse app. If you are a regular and an active user you can create and manage clubs. The idea of audio was so unique that the app created an entirely different space out of it. The application fantastic rise came as a surprise to the team after making it available for everyone.
