Invite-only social audio application Clubhouse is getting into the direct message game with Wednesday’s introduction of Backchannel for Android and iOS users worldwide.

Clubhouse said the ability to DM has been one of the most requested features by its community.

Backchannel offers both one-on-one and group chat, along with an optional second inbox for message requests.

Clubhouse said in a blog post that potential uses for Backchannel include:

  • Discussing rooms in real-time: Speakers can chat with co-hosts to plan which question to ask next or who to bring up from the audience, while listeners can chat about the discussion with friends in the audience by tapping the airplane icon or swiping left.
