Clubhouse Release Notes & Town Hall Updates
The latest release took place on Thursday, October 14. It introduced Music Mode, a new setting that helps you sound your best when performing on Clubhouse. No matter what you're doing, Clubhouse will optimize for music instead of voice capture and support stereo audio when Music Mode is turned on. It also included searching right from the Hallway which makes it even easier for you to find creators that you've interacted with. Read the full release notes here.
During Sunday's town hall, Clubhouse co-founders answered many user questions and announced Music Mode and Hallway Search. They also held a surprise town hall with creators to test out Music Mode.
