Jam is the cross-platform, self-hosted and open source alternative to Clubhouse



Club House She has been giving people talk for months, especially in the last few weeks. We have already dealt with the phenomenon, the reason for being of this fashionable social network and now we have to talk about an alternative, at least, curious: Jam. It is open source, with the possibility of self-hosting and a good number of additional features, in addition to being multiplatform since access is via the web.



Using this web application is as simple as accessing its website, writing the theme of the audio room you are going to create, a description of it and starting it by inviting your friends to join it. No registration is needed, much less an invitation to use it as it happens with Clubhouse. Jam seeks speed, practicality and reach everyone.

In the same way as the application it takes as its inspiration, this open source project allows the silence of the room, of oneself, the sharing of the conversation via link and practically everything. Although the differences and similarities go beyond.



Jam vs. Clubhouse: how they differ

As we can see on Jam's page on GitLab, the web app goes further especially in customization. Jam allows you to set a logo and colors to the rooms, includes animated reactions like the ones we can find in Slack or Facebook Messenger, includes support for monetization tools such as PayPal.me and allows self-hosting, to use it as we wish.



In the against we have to Jam only allows about fifteen active participants in the roomwhile Clubhouse can reach around a hundred. As for the number of listeners, despite the fact that they are working to expand the number, it stands at around thirty. In the case of the fashion app, it seemed to be around 5,000 a few weeks ago, although the limit is currently at 8,000.




Despite certain limitations in the number of participants, Jam is an interesting alternative to Clubhouse and other similar applications

Another important point is that while in Clubhouse one of the pillars is the discovery of rooms through the application itself, which encourages attendance and streamlines its use, this does not exist in Jam. The rooms must be promoted by oneself and the active ones can only be found by their link.



Otherwise, Jam can be an interesting alternative to create audio rooms that can be used for round tables, jam sessions, talks, debates and everything we can think of.
