Clubhouse became a craze, globally and in the UAE. Meeting people, discussing topics and entertainment for hours, users of this app were not disappointed. That is until the audio quality has been deteriorating.
Switching to data instead of WiFi did not resolve the issue, so what could be causing the poor audio quality in the UAE? Users believe it’s blocked, taking to the socials to investigate further.
A UAE Clubhouse user reached out to The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) to find out if the app is banned, resulting in the poor audio quality

TRA replied and stated that it is not banned in the UAE
If the TRA reported the app is not banned, the reason for the bad audio quality is still unknown.

A number of users said that using VPN helps in poor audio quality situations. You need an invite from an already existing user to start using the app. Someone in Marina was selling a Clubhouse entry for AED3,000 on Dubizzle!
