Why DM on a social audio app?
Apparently the business has decided to introduce the direct messaging feature to allow the participants or moderators of an on line occasion to converse with the participants along with enabling persons to connect amongst themselves even following the conclusion of the audio occasion. To place it more succinctly, the business does not want the participants of the audio events to look for a further medium to connect with other participants of the occasion as soon as the occasion is more than. This way the business is aiming at offering each services from its platform namely- social audio occasion as properly as direct messaging feature.
Clubhouse had accidentally leaked the new feature back in June. The new feature will be a critical development for the Clubhouse app as its rival social audio applications which includes Twitter Spaces and Facebook Live Audio Rooms currently have enabled the messaging feature on its platform. The application has been downloaded about 8 million instances on the Android devices.
