Clubhouse, the popular audio chat app, has been growing at a rapid pace and major companies are taking notice. Currently, Slack, LinkedIn, Discord, Spotify, Twitter, and Facebook are all working on adding features that allow people to host audio events.ย 

Yesterday, Discord announced that they will be launching new Clubhouse-like channels for audio events. Discord says it can be used for voice-based AMAs and interviews, book clubs, and even karaoke.


Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield also indicated that his company has plans to build Clubhouse features into the app. Interestingly enough, Stewart made this announcement at a Clubhouse event.

LinkedIn also confirmed that it is testing a social audio experience that would allow creators on its network to connect with their community.ย 

Twitter Spaces is already live in beta testing for a limited amount of people and is set to launch in the coming months.

Spotify recently acquired Locker Room, a clubhouse competitor. Spotify says that it would offer sports, music, and cultural programming as well as live discussions with musicians, and other personalities.

In your opinion, which platform will be the most successful with the audio feature?

    As Discord's entire product is geared towards offering a great audio experience, I think their users will benefit a lot from this. Eager to see how this plays out

      And since they have the lead on audio, I think they'll lead this new market as well in a couple of years. But CH will still be at the top. They have the badge for being the first to create an audio-only social network, and there seems to be place for everyone in this newly emerged market.

        Definitely excited for Clubhouse as well. Can't wait to see it on Android.ย

        Agree. I think Discord already had set a foot for audio experiences (actually most of my experiences with Discord have been audio only for a while). I'm not then how the new clubhouse like feature will play out.ย

        My friend and I built something similar for small teams. Launched it last week. Still very new of course and weย  could use some feedback. Check it out : https://plutohq.inย
