Clubhouse currently doesn’t offer any in-app recording capabilities.
While this might be a deliberate move by its creators to both increase the FOMO when it comes to conversations, and give participants the freedom to speak freely, it can be a bugbear for both hosts and participants alike — especially those that would rather tap into a larger audience than the 5,000 users that rooms are currently capped to.
But just because Clubhouse doesn’t record conversations, it doesn’t mean that you can’t.
But wait, before you run off to record and re-post your event’s conversations, make sure that participants are aware of this. Typically, you can signal this by appending a ‘🔴 recording’ note to your room or event’s title.
Once you’ve done that, simply use the iPhone’s built-in sound recorder.
Step 1: Add Screen Recording in the Control Center
Step 2: Slide up to access the Control Center and tap the Screen Recording button
Step 3: Make sure your microphone is off
Unless you want to capture your contributions to a Clubhouse conversation, swipe up, hold down the Screen Recording button for about 2 to 3 seconds, and toggle the microphone off.
Step 4: Once you’re done recording, the file will be saved to your Photos for exporting.
