New Houses feature is being tested by Clubhouse for curated interactions

San Francisco: Intending to encourage curated interactions, popular social audio platform Clubhouse is testing a new feature that allows any user, group, or community to create their own curated "House" within the platform.

Users can sign up to create Houses now, but the platform said it will gradually accept new Houses to gather feedback and make necessary changes to the product.

"Think of Houses as private hallways just for your favourite people. You can drop in anytime, hop from room to room, catch up with friends, and meet their friends," the platform said in a blog post.

In a series of tweets, Co-founder Paul Davison said that "the best social experiences are not open to everyone. They are small and curated. This is what creates intimacy, trust and friendship".

"The new graph structure will allow any person, group, or community to create its own House -- with its own personality, culture and content moderation rules -- where members can meet up regularly, talk, and hop from room to room.

"House member lists will be public because it's more fun that way. Many rooms in the clubhouse will still be public too, and everyone will be able to explore the public hallways, discovering new people and cultures from around the world. Only the House rooms will be private," he added.

In April, Clubhouse confirmed that it is testing a new in-room gaming feature on both iOS and Android platforms.

As part of the initial launch, the app rolled out a game called "Wild Cards", which presents a series of questions designed to spur conversation and help people get to know each other better.
