Clubhouse has added support for 13 new languages on the Android version of the app.
Clubhouse has also added a new tool called ‘Topics’.
Clubhouse has announced the inclusion of 13 new languages, after the addition of support for 13 local languages earlier this year. Clubhouse has launched a new tool called ‘Topics’ to go along with its second phase of language localization.
Clubhouse has extended support for 13 new languages to the Android version of the app in an effort to make the platform more accessible to users and break down linguistic barriers. Arabic, Bengali, Farsi/Persian, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Marathi, Nepali, Somali, Thai, Turkish, Hausa, Igbo, and Yoruba are just a few of the languages available.
These 13 languages join French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kannada, Korean, Malayalam, Portuguese (Brazilian), Spanish, Tamil, and Telugu, which Clubhouse added to its platform earlier this year.
“We’ve heard from many of you that language localisation has helped you grow as creators and we’re excited to continue seeing new party hats from different corners of the world joining your rooms,” Clubhouse said in a statement.
The platform has also released an upgrade to the feature that was formerly known as ‘Interests.’ This feature will now be known as ‘Topics,’ and will cover a broader, more comprehensive list of topics that will “make it easier to discover rooms and clubs, as well as the option to display topics you follow on your profile so people can quickly see what you’re all about,” according to the company.
Topics, as defined by Clubhouse, will assist users identify rooms, groups, and individuals with similar interests or experience. Many users have found Clubhouse’s discoverability algorithm to be very confusing thus far, with rooms and topics being automatically suggested when one fired up the app, and which were not matched to the users’ interests.
