Clubhouse will now let users have one-on-one or group chat via direct messages. Since its explosive growth, this will be the first time the social audio app will bring on a text-based communication system.
All iOS and Android users can now use the Backchannel messaging feature for sending text and links. No images or videos are supported in this system yet. The function will help users connect within the invite-only app without any third-party app or other social media platforms, as well as for moderators to have private discussions during a live room. You can simply press the airplane icon to start a conversation with any of your followers and messages to non-followers will go to the optional inbox that houses all your message requests.
My hat? Tipped
My mic? Flashed
My messaging? Direct.
