Hi all โ€” Happy Wednesday! Today is a big day for Clubhouse...

๐Ÿ‘‹ Weโ€™re thrilled to share that Clubhouse is now open to everyone! This means we have removed our waitlist system so that anyone can join and you can invite as many people as you want! If you have a club, you can post your link far and wide. If you are a creator with an audience, you can bring them all on. If youโ€™re hosting a public event, anyone can attend. You can bring close friends, classmates, family members, coworkers, and anyone else you like โ€” on iOS or Android. Read more on our blog.

๐Ÿ“ธ We have a new app icon! After a wonderful run with Dandara, we are thrilled to announce that the one and only Justin โ€œMeezyโ€ Williams will be representing the Clubhouse community as our new app icon. As many of you know, Meezy is an entrepreneur, the manager of 21 Savage, and one of the most prominent operators in the Atlanta music scene. His Clubhouse club, The Meez-O Estates, describes itself lovingly as a place to "talk about fun, music, business, & all ratchet activity possible." The club is often a first stop for new faces on Clubhouse and a staple for musicians and Atlanta cool kids. Since joining the app in September of 2020, Meezy has been prolific โ€” hosting a weekly R&B show, conversations about fatherhood, NBA celebration cookouts, and rooms debating the latest in music streaming tech. You can read more about Meezy on our blog!

๐Ÿ’ป We have a logo now! ๐Ÿ˜… And a new website! After 16 months, we figured it was time. Check out the new Clubhouse.com that Molly and Aaron designed last week, along with our new blog.

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต Support your country in the Olympics! We're Olympics-crazy here at Clubhouse and wanted to help the Clubhouse community show their country pride! Just add your country's flag emoji anywhere in your bio and during the Olympics it will show up as a badge on your profile photo whenever you're in a room. If you have multiple flags, we'll show the one that appears first.

That's it for now. We're so excited to welcome everyone to the community... And as always, thank you for being part of Clubhouse! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

๐Ÿ‘‹ Heads up! We updated our Privacy Policy on July 14 to make sure it's clear how your data is collected and used when you send messages on Clubhouse. By continuing to use Clubhouse, you are acknowledging the new policy. Thank you!

Hi all โ€” Happy Wednesday! Today we're incredibly excited to share something that we've been working hard on for more than a month...

๐Ÿ’ฌ Introducing the Backchannelโ€”the new direct messaging service for Clubhouse! This one has been a long time coming, and we're so excited to share it with you.

Backchannel has both 1:1 and group chat, and an optional second inbox for message requests. This means you can use it to discuss your rooms in real-time, take questions from the audience, say thank you to people, plan your events, or just chat with your Clubhouse friends.

This is just a v1 and we'll be adding more features to Backchannel in the coming weeks, but we can't wait to hear what you think. You can read more about it here. :)
