Clubhouse has finally launched its long awaited Android app on the Play Store. It’s currently available only in the United States, however, will be gradually launched in the other markets soon.
‘’Today, we are thrilled to share that Clubhouse for Android will start rolling out in beta immediately. We will begin gradually, with the U.S. today, followed by other English-speaking countries and then the rest of the world.’’ said the company in its latest blog post.
Clubhouse launched its iPhone-only app in April last year which attracted great attention during the pandemic, especially after Elon Musk used the platform to chat with Robinhood CEO about GameStop shares.
The company, which recently closed a Series C funding round at reportedly $4 billion valuation, began developing its Android app earlier this year and started beta testing it last week.
The company will use the data it will collect from the users in the United States to address any possible issues and get the app ready for a broader roll out.
“Our plan over the next few weeks is to collect feedback from the community, fix any issues we see and work to add a few final features like payments and club creation before rolling it out more broadly.’’
After the quick success Clubhouse has managed to catch, social media giants including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit, Telegram, Discord, ByteDance and Spotify have launched / announced their Clubhouse-rival products.
Meanwhile, top three audio chat apps hit 20 million downloads globally so far in 2021, according to Sensor Tower.
