Can You Send A Private Message?

As of now, there's not a private message feature on Clubhouse. But, setting up your profile to be connected to your other social media (like Facebook and Instagram) lets other users easily find you if you want to start a conversation off the app.

How Do You Start A Closed Room On Clubhouse?

Choose Start A Room and then select the lock icon that says Closed, which will prompt you to add a topic and select who amongst your friends to invite. Others won't be able to find your room unless you switch to public during the call.

Are Clubhouse Conversations Permanent?

While conversations are recorded by Clubhouse to monitor any potential claims of misconduct, users are not permitted to record conversations. In fact, screen recording will prompt a notification to remind you to think twice.
