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. The platform witnessed explosive growth in the initial days of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic but now faces competition from social media networks, especially from Twitter Spaces.Twelve never-boring months later, were 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.
