The very recent increase in the Clubhouse app’s popularity has now shown that voice-based interactions are slowly becoming the future of social networking.
Clubhouse, as of the moment, is still limited to iOS and is only accessible when a certain user invites another user. Seeing the whole platform as a really big potential opportunity, social media giants just like Facebook as well as Twitter are now working on their very own adaptations to reach a wider audience.
Twitter Spaces and Instagram Live Rooms
While the upcoming Twitter Spaces is now already being tested and a number of people have now learned about Facebook’s plans to also make a live audio rooms inspired Instagram app, Instagram is also working on enabling end-to-end encryption in chats. Instagram live is now already quite popular for creators to be able to interact along with their followers. It’s also important to add that the recent addition of Instagram Live Rooms would allow anyone to go live and add about three or even more users.
According to the story by XDA-Developers, Instagram now also appears to be working on its very own live audio rooms where the host will be able to add a number of users during every single live audio session. The App Researcher known as Alessandro Paluzzi shared certain screenshots of the said under-development Instagram feature to Twitter.
Paluzzi, however, did not actually share additional details regarding the functions included in Instagram’s live audio rooms. However, the replacement of the app’s microphone icon located near the camera icon would suggest Instagram could possibly integrate video and audio live rooms.
The intentions of Facebook to clone Clubhouse was initially reported last month. This was during the announcement of Live Rooms, Instagram has now also confirmed that it is still exploring even more interactive tools just like offering certain moderator controls as well as audio features that will be rolling out in the coming months.
While the whole functionality of the audio room is now still relatively new, the app is now also set to get a brand new feature that was reportedly commissioned first at least two years ago. With other apps rushing in to copy and roll out the popular feature that made Clubhouse famous, it is interesting to see which particular company would succeed with the best app or probably even better.
For those that aren’t acquainted with Clubhouse, the only setback that this app has as of the moment is that it is iOS exclusive. The Apple iPhone 11 Pro is a good phone to start with for those that want to try out Apple exclusive apps like Clubhouse. While this might be too expensive for some, the Apple iPhone 6 could be a more budget-friendly option.
