A big part of the reason for the success of Clubhouse and the reason that so many other similar products and platforms, like Twitter Spaces, are emerging at this time is that we’ve been missing the serendipity that happens in a live voice conversation.
Sure, the human connection aspect is a big part of it too.
But I believe that over recent years with the rise of the short messaging platforms, we have lost much of the serendipity that we would otherwise have if we were using just talking to each other.
You never know exactly where a live voice conversation will end up or what twists and turns you will take to get there.
Yes, the COVID-19 pandemic has helped ensure these voice platforms get traction.
But it is the Serendipity of Conversation that will ensure they continue beyond that.
