This invite-only, audio-based iPhone app is like listening in on someone else's phone call, legally. Here's what you need to know about Clubhouse, including how Elon Musk figures into its recent surge.
Here's the gist: Imagine you have an app on your phone that lets you listen in on other people's live conversations. But not in a creepy way; these people want to be heard. They may even be famous, or at least interesting or knowledgeable (no guarantee, however). And you may be given the opportunity to join the chat. Think of it as an audio-chat social network. Or as PCMag's Jordan Minor says in our review, "What if Twitter was a podcast you lived inside of?"
Anyone use it yet? Getting pretty popular. It’s invite only for now but the app will be open to the public soon.
