Why you should install CarPlay Clubhouse App
Clubhouse is one of the most famous social networking platforms which is based on audio.
Currently, Clubhouse allows you the following features:
- Host rooms of your own and create sessions on anything you want.
- To follow your favorite speakers
- Talk with amazing people all over the world
- Brush up knowledge by joining public sessions
- The ability of just listening without talking
- Explore and join thousands of rooms which suits you
Considering these features, I thoroughly recommend Clubhouse as an Apple CarPlay app.
Reasons to suggest Clubhouse as a CarPlay app
- There are options to just listen to the sessions without talking. This is rather similar to listening to a radio channel. And Apple has not restricted radio channels for CarPlay.
- Also talking via Clubhouse does not demand visuals and there is a very low possibility of distracting the user. So, you can simply speak in Clubhouse while paying 100%of your eye on the roads.
- As there is a feature to leave rooms quietly, you can leave ongoing rooms without disturbing others. So if you feel a particular Clubhouse session disturbs you you can simply leave it.
- Moreover, joining the rooms and speaking is really easy as it takes only a single tap.
- Furthermore, Clubhouse sends you notifications once a person you follow is talking and when a session is started from a room you are following. So you do not need to worry about finding the matching sessions while driving.
As Clubhouse is basically a Social Networking app which can distract the driver at a minimal level, Apple does not allow it on CarPlay by default. But I noticed that there are situations in which we can use Clubhouse on CarPlay without any risk.
