Clubhouse rolls out new features in bid to juice growth

Social audio chat app Clubhouse is rolling out new features to help content creators expand their audience. 

The new features include the ability to record and replay conservations and the ability to download 30-second clips from other social media sites. 

The social app is also rolling out an improved search function to help find live and scheduled audio rooms for users with clubs and certain interests, the company said in its statement on Thursday.

"Right now it's too hard for (creators) to grow," Clubhouse's co-creator and chief executive Paul Davison said in an interview, according to Reuters"Anytime you help create a great moment or there's a good quote, you can share that out far and wide, alongside a link that tells people where to go to join that club."

This comes as Clubhouse is competing with other social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, which have introduced social audio features this year, Reuters reported. 

Some of the new features will be available for users within the next few weeks, the company said.
