Clubhouse to soon allow users to filter out explicit rooms

Clubhouse is facing growing competition from a number of rivals such as Twitter, Facebook, Spotify, Discord and Telegram.

Social audio platform Clubhouse will soon allow users to filter out explicit rooms from its home feed, cofounder Paul Davison said on December 5.

The firm is rolling out a NSFW (Not Safe For Work) toggle on the app later this week that will remove these rooms from the app's homescreen (or hallway as the company calls it). This feature will be available to users through the app's account settings and they will be able to toggle it on or off, Davison said during the company's weekly Townhall on December 5.

While Davison noted that "there aren't a lot of these rooms", the platform has witnessed a significant increase in the explicit content/rooms on the platform, especially after it became available on Android earlier this year.

A Moneycontrol investigation, published on December 4, reported that the platform faces a deluge of 18+ rooms, adult content, and bullying it is unable to keep a lid on.
