How to Mute Yourself on Clubhouse?
The clubhouse is an entirely audio-based application. While you can create rooms or be a part of the room to talk about different topics you can also mute yourself on clubhouse if you just want to passively listen to the conversation. Since it is a platform where people debate on various subjects, the feature of limiting users to speak is useful, especially in times of conflict.
Within a clubhouse room, there are generally three different roles: Moderator, Speaker,, and Audience. In terms of speaking authority, a moderator has full control over everyone who is present in the room. As a moderator, you can mute yourself on clubhouse but also mute and unmute someone else. On the other hand, speakers can only mute and unmute themselves and have no control over other speakers or audiences.
Lastly, the audience has their mic muted from the very start and can only speak if the moderator unmutes their mic. The role-based hierarchy really helps establish authority and peace and also avoids arguments. In this article, we will show you ways to mute yourself on clubhouse as well as with others.
