Amid growing competition in audio chat services, Live audio app Clubhouse has done away with the invite-only system for letting people join the platform. Clubhouse previously required either an invite from an existing user to join the platform or the users had to request to join a waitlist.

“Twelve never-boring months later, we’re thrilled to share that Clubhouse is now out of beta, open to everyone, and ready to begin its next chapter. This means we have removed our waitlist system so that anyone can join,” Clubhouse said in a blog post.

The company said the earlier limitation was aimed at being able to grow in a “measured way” and keeping things from “breaking” as the platform scaled, adding that they always wanted to be open. The app was initially available only for iOS and in mid-May this year, Clubhouse was launched on Android.

“We know there will be many more ups and downs as we scale, and competition from the large networks will be fierce. But we believe the future is created by optimists — and we’re excited to keep working to build a different kind of social network,” the company added. Last week, Clubhouse introduced the ‘Backchannel’ feature which allows users to send direct messages on the platform. The company said around 90 million direct messages were sent since the launch of Backchannel. Apart from messaging friends on the platform, the feature is aimed at helping speakers coordinate with co-hosts or exchange questions from the audience.Clubhouse said it had added 10 million people since its Android launch.(Reuters)
