Clubhouse is a fully audio-based social media platform. It provides users with the opportunity to discuss various topics with other users around the world. Usually, a user creates a room and decides the topic to discuss in that room. You can browse the different rooms and join one that’s discussing your subject of interest.
But, before you join any room, you must be a Clubhouse community member, and, currently, the app is an invitation-only platform. So, how do you nominate someone to a Clubhouse? Let’s find out.
How to join Clubhouse
There’re two ways to join Clubhouse. First, you must find a user and ask them to nominate or invite you. Second, download the app and join a waiting list. After you’ve been admitted, you can proceed to invite more than one person to Clubhouse.
How to invite someone to Clubhouse
- Launch the Clubhouse app on your device.
- Tap on the mail icon in the top navigation bar.
- Grant the app the necessary permissions if you’re prompted to.
- You’ll see the number of invites available. Usually, a new user gets two invites at first and adds more when participating in Clubhouse events and conversations.
- Next, you’ll be shown a list of all the contacts on your device.
- Scroll through the contact list until you find the one you want to invite, or simply enter their name in the search bar at the top.
- Tap on the invite icon next to the contact.
If the contact had already downloaded the app and was on the waiting list, they can accept your invitation and sign up. If they haven’t downloaded the app, you’ll be prompted to send the invitation through a messaging platform.
Immediately after the person accepts your invitation, you’ll receive a notification in your Clubhouse app. You will be shown their profile as the user who nominated them to join Clubhouse.
To see your pending invitations:
- Tap on the mail icon
- Select “See Pending Invites.”
