Clubhouse has launched a suite of new features and among them is the ability to finally record conversations. One of them is called “Clips”, a new button that will allow anyone in the room to record the last 30 seconds of the conversation.
The feature has to be enabled by the creators of the room and can be disabled at any time. It’s only available for open/public rooms, meaning private, social, and club rooms will remain private. For now though, Clips will only be rolled out to select creators as it’s still beta.
When Clips is enabled, both the creators and the audience can tap on the scissor-shaped (✄) button at any point during the conversation to get a shareable and editable clip of the last 30 seconds. Don’t worry if you’re not included in Clips’ beta, as there’s a new feature coming this month that will let every user save and distribute their conversations. “Replays” will let you save your entire room’s conversation, download it, and make the room publicly discoverable for as long as you want.

There’s also Universal Search that lets people search for specific rooms, clubs, people, and future events. As a bonus, Android users are also getting support for Spatial Audio. These new updates seem to be focused on expanding the reach of its creators, addressing the issue of a lack in shareability.
