Tips for joining the app by invitation only
What there is to know
- Find someone who is part of the clubhouse community with an invitation to save. A user receives two invitations after registering.
- Or, join the clubhouse waitlist, which can take a while as there is no confirmed launch date. You can also ask questions on social media.
- The Clubhouse app is currently iOS only. You need an iOS device to accept a clubhouse invitation.
This article explains three ways to get an invite to the Clubhouse audio social networking app. These methods include knowing someone with an available invite, joining the clubhouse waitlist, and asking on social media.
You must know someone
The new and exclusive Clubhouse social media app calls itself a “space for casual, walk-in audio chats”. But the reality is not anyone can ‘drop-in. At least not yet. Clubhouse is still in beta and, for now, is only available to those who receive an invite.
The easiest way to get a clubhouse invitation is to know a clubhouse member who can invite you. New users can send two invitations. When they invite you, you will have access to the service.
To send an invitation, the clubhouse user selects envelope icon on the app, then enter your phone number in the Invite phone box # .
Alternatively, if the clubhouse user has enabled clubhouse to access their phone’s contacts, they can type invite to next to your name in the contacts list.
After the clubhouse user invites someone, the app generates a text inviting that person to join the service. Once the guest accepts the clubhouse invitation, they can start using the app and are automatically a follower of the user who invited them.
Join the waiting list
The second option, joining the Clubhouse waiting list, is less about knowing the right people, but it takes more time. Even without an invitation from a friend, you can download the Clubhouse app and join the waitlist. Clubhouse won’t tell you what location you are in or how long you can expect to wait. In addition to saving you a spot, this option reserves your username for when you get an invitation.
Ask a friend (or a stranger)
If you don’t know anyone with an invitation to save and don’t want to wait, ask around. While some people sell invitations (something that may or may not be against Clubhouse community guidelines), others have additional invitations to spare.
Go to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or another social platform, and compose a message asking if anyone has an invite available. Add the hashtag #Clubhouse. This method isn’t guaranteed to work, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.
After the invitation
After receiving an elusive clubhouse invite, the next step is to register and login so you can create your profile, follow the topics that interest you, and create and join rooms.
