What is the clubhouse app?
Clubhouse App, now available in the Apple store and Google Play Store, is described as a “drop-in audio chat” where conversations moderate the room. The Clubhouse app has a logo & website. According to the latest statistics, Clubhouse sign-in now has over 10 million users according to the most recent data. This is where people hang out based on alpha exploration.

Live-streaming and podcasting
Sound quality is an important factor for communication, even to play music on the app, as an audio-only platform heavily based on content by creators, also known as moderators. Understanding the music industry, it is well known that good sound output results to a great time as an in-app experience, which is an ongoing form of communication within rooms and in a matter of time, you get to connect with the real people in the room.
Every room is topic-driven so it's easy to gather like-minded people around similar passions, hobbies or interests. Artists can find virtual communities and connect with other artists within different clubs, including yours.
Knowing that content rules the day on the app, the Founder(s) Paul & Rohan starting from Silicon Valley, have mastered the concept of building communities by having weekly town-hall meetings every Sunday in the Clubhouse HQ club.
On the app, you can join virtual clubs around specific topics that host their own rooms and events for their members. They've already introduced a feature called “Music Mode,” which offers your room improved better sound when it detects your phone is connected to an iRig (video below). In the most recent update on 3/5/21, you can change audio quality if you're on stage as a speaker. This only affects how others hear you and not how you hear yourself.
Pro Tip: Tap “…” to switch your audio quality settings. Set it to ‘high' if you're performing or set it ‘low' if you have bad internet connection.
Imagine being able to perform as a band or host jam sessions, remotely, while fans can tune in like a live radio station. From experiences, there are people who have participated in jam sessions, LIVE! DJ spins, auto-tune mixes, and more with musicians in different parts of the world which works!
I've been on the app since November 2020 and I have learned a lot about various LIVE! streaming apps other than Zoom & StreamYard (which are still top favorites). I have also learned about Riverside.fm and Ecamm Live which are also great streaming platforms to extend your social media accounts and cross-pollinate as you build real-time connections.

How to Create a Seamless Flow: The best practice to focus on when listening or speaking in a room is to always contribute and serve your community while you sustain authority in your expertise. You will always need to PTR real quick, which also means Pull-To-Refresh to bring the room back to order, both on the app and in conversations.

How the app works for user experience
This is what happens when new users download the app. As an invitation-only community app, there is power in social media and rooms are ran daily to build these connections. Personal experiences are highly individual based on the calendar icon taps you schedule for an initial impression of the room in the audio-only social-media venues. As an only-audio form of communication, your voice is the best way to build authentic relationships.

The End-to-End User Experience
Looking at competitors like Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, and more with their own clone app, it becomes unpredictable for the end user to decide on what to focus on, but it looks like Clubhouse is still winning with a community developing a social experiment like a Clubhouse social graph that includes a new community with an adaptive culture.

How to get audio from the computer to Clubhouse
Think of an image of a human face and match it up with a voice; that's a room that is defined by who's currently speaking. You have the selection to play music on Clubhouse like this YouTube video with support through your computer with an iRig2 connection securely.
With an iRig 2 connection, you can make music on your Windows PC or Apple Mac to feed audio from your computer into the social media platform and get audio from other devices into Clubhouse.
