Final Verdicts – Clubhouse vs Discord
|RAM Required||N/A||4 GB|
|UI||Smooth||Becomes laggy as server grows|
|Multi-platform Support||Android & iOS||All Platform (Android, Apple, Linux)|
Clubhouse looks more organized and scheduled with rooms and clubs, providing flexibility of room scheduling as per required time by the moderator. The moderator picks speakers and listeners.
If you are looking to join a group of people sharing the same thoughts and interests then go for it. But that too comes when you get an invitation.
Discord on the other hand is a real-time meet and greet with a discussion mode of audio, video, text at a time. It provides channel flexibility and allows you to share your screen.
The condition is that your listener should be active at that time and you are on the same channel of that server.
Is Clubhouse really hyped?
If we see Clubhouse it is unique in its category of audio conservation with an invitation-only basis targeting selected audiences, thus providing an overall best audio along with room schedule feature.
With this context, it is hyped and gaining a large user base too.
