After a year of no film premieres or in-person awards shows, Hollywood is turning to a new venue to have the kind of spontaneous conversations with strangers that they once had in line at the bar. Clubhouse, an app for audio-only conversations, has over the past few months become a popular hangout spot for several top filmmakers, actors, and influencers.
Less than a year old, Clubhouse was founded by a pair of Silicon Valley veterans, Paul Davison, and Rohan Seth. Though it's still in a testing, invite-only phase, Clubhouse has attracted around 2 million weekly active users — and a waitlist of people desperate to gain entry.
Early Clubhouse users say the free app — which adds audio to the early-internet concept of the chat room — is appealing in how it mimics an IRL conversation. Any user can start a room and determine who can speak. Others can listen in and tap the & raise your hand& icon to request speaking capabilities. Clubhouse doesn’t record the
conversations, which encourages off-the-cuff interactions.
Hollywood and members of the music community, always eager to jump onto a buzzy new app, have clamored for invites, and Oprah Winfrey, Kevin Hart, Terry Crews, Questlove, 21 Savage and Gayle King have been spotted in the app. **
