This is why Clubhouse records all user conversations
Clubhouse is an app that is based on audio. A social network quite different from everything that surrounds us and that is because here there is no multimedia content, nor do we allow ourselves to be carried away by physical appearances, but by voice, conversation topics and so on.
Inside the Clubhouse there are different rooms, or rooms, in which we can enter to be participants of the conversation or listeners. The operation is very simple and intuitive. In addition, he plays with two tricks in his favor: exclusivity and innovation.
A Clubhouse is only accessed by invitation, and getting one is somewhat complicated, but not impossible as we explained in detail a few days ago. And the other aspect that plays in Clubhouse’s favor is that it is only available on iOS, where it already exceeds 8 million downloads, although it is expected to soon reach Android.
“For the sole purpose of to support incident investigations, we temporarily record audio in a room while the room is active. If a user reports a violation while the room is active, we retain the audio for the purpose of investigating the incident and it is removed when the investigation is complete. “
Clubhouse adds that if there has been no incident, the recordings are deleted when the room ends. He also comments that all recordings are encrypted.
So that conversations can be recorded, the social network asks permission to access the microphone. This is nothing new, and has always been related to the appearance of personalized advertising, as indicated VozPópuli.
