Clubhouse is an exclusive audio chat app that works on an invite basis. Once you are invited to Clubhouse, you can join various groups and rooms based on your interests. This allows you to converse with like-minded individuals interested in the same topics as you from around the world.
Clubhouse also allows you to create groups of individuals based on various factors. This gives you the ability to create private groups on different topics with your friends and family. You can then easily connect on Clubhouse using the group you have created. Let’s take a look at how you can create groups within Clubhouse.
Clubhouse is currently still scaling for the numerous users joining the platform daily. Additionally, to moderate users and groups to a certain extent, the groups feature in Clubhouse is still in its early beta stages. Due to this, the devs are only accepting manual requests to create a group.
Moreover, you have to have hosted a minimum of 3 successful group sessions within Clubhouse to be eligible to submit a group creation request. If you meet these criteria, then you can submit a request to create a new group in Clubhouse using the guide below.
How to start a group on Clubhouse
Open the Clubhouse app and tap on your profile picture in the top right corner.
Now tap on the ‘Gear’ icon to access ‘Settings’.
Tap on ‘FAQ/Contact Us’.

Read through the terms and rules of creating a club.
Once done, tap on the link ‘here’ at the bottom.

Be sure to provide details regarding how your group would really be a good addition to the app. Or how it will help you and your peers. When done, submit the form.
And that’s it! You now simply need to wait for a reply from the moderation team and hopefully, your request for a new group will be approved by them.
Clubhouse group members
There are three main statuses for each group member in Clubhouse. Let’s take a look at them.
- Founder/Admin: The person submitting the request to create a group will be considered the admin/founder of the group. They will have full access to all the group settings including moderation of members.
- Member role: Members’ roles can be assigned to selected individuals within your group. These individuals will be able to submit requests for adding new followers to the group. Members will also be able to view and host private rooms within a certain group.
- Follower role: Followers will be able to view and join public rooms hosted by your group. They won’t be able to host their own private rooms nor will they be able to view or join private rooms within your group.
Uses of groups in Clubhouse
Groups are a great way of building and moderating your own community within Clubhouse. Once you have created a group, you can host public and private rooms on different topics within your groups. This allows for numerous possibilities and uses, the most popular of which have been mentioned below.
Create a Family/Friends group
Using a Clubhouse group, you and your family members can connect whenever you like. Not only this, moms and aunts can have their own private rooms and so can the kids. The founder can easily manage and moderate these rooms on the fly creating the perfect closed virtual environment for you and your family members to connect remotely.
Create an interest-based group
You can create a group for a specific niche or topic where like-minded individuals can converse with each other. You can then host multiple private or public rooms catering to different users like beginners or pros on certain topics.
You can even assign member roles to active members that fit the bill so that they can host their own specific rooms for conversations on certain aspects of the niche chosen by you.
The possibilities with Clubhouse groups are endless, and if you are looking to create your own virtual community, then this might be the next best option for you.
