Social audio app Clubhouse has introduced a new feature on the platform that will allow people to listen to a room using their phone, tablet or laptop’s web browser. The web listening feature does not require the listener to download the app or log in.

The experimental feature is being rolled out in the U.S., with support for “most major browsers”, according to Clubhouse. “If you find it useful, we’ll plan to expand support to cover more room types, more countries, and more parts of the full Clubhouse experience over time,”

the audio platform noted in a blog post.

Separately, Clubhouse also updated the share button, making it easier for the users to share on Clubhouse, via a social network or a messaging app. Those who want to share information about a room using the ‘share on Clubhouse’ option, will be able to add a comment before sharing it with their followers. A version of the feature has started rolling out to iOS and Android users.

Sharing on Clubhouse will allow users to add a comment and share a card with their followers, allowing them to join the room if it is life when they see it. Along with this, the audio-only social platform is also launching tools for creators that will help them understand how their rooms are performing by displaying Share and Clip counts at the bottom of the room. Additionally, there will also be a new Room Insights page. 

Several other companies have either entered or plan to enter into the social audio space, which takes interactions and conversations back to their origins.
