Clubhouse makes it easier for users to connect with people with similar interests around the world through audio. It combines the ease of discovering friends on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram, with the drop in audio connectivity of Discord. If you’re new to Clubhouse then you might have found it difficult to connect with individuals as there is no apparent DM icon. So how do you DM someone on Clubhouse?
Can you DM someone on Clubhouse?
Sadly Clubhouse does not allow you to DM anyone within the app. The app has gained its popularity on exclusivity by giving access to popular celebrities and musicians. To avoid unwanted solicitation and messages, Clubhouse never intended to include the ability to DM on the platform. Hence, you can not send a DM on Clubhouse.
But wait, you can still DM a Clubhouse user. Here’s how
If you can’t send DMs on Clubhouse then it doesn’t really mean that you can’t get in touch with them. Clubhouse uses different social media handles to verify your identity.
Additionally, you can link your existing social media profiles to your Clubhouse account for ease of contact. This feature can also be used to promote your profiles on other platforms like Twitter and Instagram.
Most users have either one of these platforms linked to their profile. You can use this information to get in touch with virtually anyone on Clubhouse. Let’s take a look at how you can find a person’s social media handles to get in touch with them.
Open Clubhouse and tap on the ‘Search’ icon in the top left corner.
Now use the search bar above to search for the person that you wish to contact.
Tap on their profile in the search results to open it up.
Once you are on their profile, you will be able to spot all their social media handles linked to their profile on Clubhouse below the ‘Personal information’ section. Simply tap on any one of them and you will be redirected to their profile on the concerned social media platform.
You can now send them a DM.
Well, in that case, there is not much you can do other than to get in touch with the contact itself. We recommend simply joining a common room and getting in touch with them one on one. But make sure you are not invading someone’s privacy or causing any sort of inconvenience.
Once you both are comfortable, you can easily create a closed room in Clubhouse to exchange your ID or later’s say Twitter or Instagram so that you can send and receive DMs there. This will reduce awkwardness while taking away the surprise of a DM from a random stranger on the internet.
