NEW YORK (AP) – Clubhouse, an invitation-only audio chat app launched less than a year ago, has caught the attention of tech industry bigshots like Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg — not to mention the Chinese government, which has already blocked it in the country.

The iPhone-only app, once you’re in, lets you start or listen into conversations on a whole host of topics, from tech to pro sports, parenting, Black literature and so on.

There are no posts, photos or videos — only people’s profile pictures and their voices. Conversations can be intimate, like a phone call, or enormously public, like a conference or stage interview.
