All Clubhouse Competitors (so far)

Twitter Spaces

Users could share tweets in a Space and turn on live voice transcription.

Discord Stage Channels

Discord already offers voice channels, which allow everyone to talk freely. A Stage Channel, a Clubhouse clone, is designed for more structured events like community town halls or AMAs. As of now, only Community servers, which have some more powerful community management tools, can create the new Stage Channels.

Reddit Talks

Reddit Talk will live within subreddits, which are individual forums focused on a given topic or theme. Those community moderators will be the only ones able to start a talk for the time being. Redditors can also change their avatar’s appearance to fit the talk as well.

Spotify Greenroom

This is Spotify’s first attempt at creating a social media platform. Greenroom is built on top of Locker Room (created by Betty Labs) which Spotify acquired this year. Locker Room was solely focused on sports content so currently, the rooms & conversations aren’t as diverse as on rival platforms. Greenroom features native recording, which will allow users to save their shows and distribute them as podcasts. Spotify owns Anchor, so one could easily imagine shows eventually being natively moved to the creation software for further editing and publishing.

Facebook Live Audio Room

Facebook just launched its social audio features in the US. As a sign of just how important the feature is to Facebook, the app will promote the conversations at the top of News Feed above Stories. Anyone can be invited up as a speaker with up to 50 people able to speak at once. There’s no cap on the number of listeners allowed in. The new format also comes with creator-friendly features, like the ability to buy “stars,” the in-app gifts that help influencers make money from their streams. Facebook seems to be taking a somewhat cautious approach with content moderation, as only verified public figures and creators in the US with accounts in “good standing” are able to create a room.

Others

LinkedIn, Slack, Mark Cuban’s Fireside, Telegram and many more.
