Clubhouse on Thursday announced an update to its iOS app that finally allows live subtitles for audio rooms. This is one of the most anticipated features for users since the launch of Clubhouse, as the social network is entirely sound-based. As a result, deaf or hard of hearing people have not been able to use the app so far.
The clubhouse shared the news on its official Twitter account. How it transmits TechCrunch, the live subtitle function currently supports 13 different languages, namely English, Cantonese, Mandarin Chinese, Yue Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Arabic, Russian and Turkish.
However, according to Clubhouse engineers, the app may have difficulty understanding non-English languages because the feature is still in beta.
Clubhouse has quickly become extremely popular this year, but the app is losing appeal among users with other platforms like Twitter Spaces is also growing significantly. Even so, it seems that Clubhouse still wants to add more features to its app to compete with other social networks that also offer live audio platforms.
Last month, Clubhouse announced an update to its iOS app with the new “Music Mode,” which adjusts the sound when someone sings or plays an instrument in a live audio room. The social network has also added support for Spatial Audio and a way to share short clips from Clubhouse conversations on other social networks.
You can get Clubhouse for free on the iOS App Store.
