🗣️ Text-to-speech is now available globally!

This new feature makes it easier for you to check and reply to your chats anytime — even if you’re somewhere where you can’t talk. (Note: The ability to create a custom voice that sounds like you is still limited to the U.S. If you’re outside the U.S., text-to-speech will use a generic but friendly voice. :)

🌟 Testing a new tab: Talk more with your friends

We've expanded the test of the new center tab to the next wave of people, after seeing good usage of it in our beta group! The new tab gives you topics to talk about and makes it easy to start conversations with a swipe. Conversations are always private but you can tap the 🔍 to see the latest chats your friends are having, like being at a party where you can bump into people, wave hi, and start talking together. We hope this tab helps you get conversations started, wax philosophical, joke around, and just say hi to your favorite people more often.

🌟 Testing a new tab: Talk more with your friends

We're testing a new center tab on both iOS and Android that helps you stay close with friends on Clubhouse. It gives you topics to talk about and lets you start them with a swipe.

When you start a chat, your other friends can see the topic and who you’re chatting with, but they can never see the contents of the chat itself. The Explore 🔍 tab shows you the latest chats your friends are having. Our goal is to make it feel like a party, where you can always discover great conversations, bump into friends talking and join in.

We hope this tab helps you get conversations started, wax philosophical, joke around and just say hi to your favorite people more often. It’s currently live to a subset of people in the U.S. and we’re hoping to expand soon!

We’ve found it to be much easier to use and hope you do too!
