Clubhouse launched a pair of updates this week that make it easier to join and share rooms – no login required.
The audio-only chat app is a web-based listening experience, which allows anyone (in the US) to connect to a Clubhouse room from their phone, tablet, or computer without downloading an app or even connect.
For starters, the feature works with replays and live rooms with replays enabled, and includes support for “most” major browsers. Users are encouraged to report any bugs during this first try. If people find web listening useful, Clubhouse said it would expand its support to cover “more room types, more countries and more parts of the full Clubhouse experience over time.”
The social network is also rolling out improvements to its share button, adding the option Share on Clubhouse with a comment. Subscribers will see the room in their hallway; if it’s still online, they’ll get a notification of your sharing so they can join.
“Sharing on Clubhouse will be one of the best ways to let your friends know about the great venues,” a company blog said. “In an NBA Fan Club room and an athlete just took the stage? In a room about a new NFT project and the artist made a surprise appearance? Share it so your followers can come on. see.”

Creators can monitor room performance by tapping the number of shares and clips, or by visiting their Room Insights page. The first edition of both features is now available on iOS and Android.
The move comes just days after TikTok announced its own Repost-to-Retweet button that allows users to share videos on the platform with their own followers.
