It has been a year since the app was launched for iOS and finally the app rolls out a version for Android. The reason behind that the app only became available for iOS was because they wanted to see how they could scale and make the app grow. And now, Clubhouse has become very popular worldwide with over 10 million active users every week. Users in the US were the first to test the beta version of Clubhouse for Android, followed by other English-speaking countries and then the remaining countries became official for all Android user on May 21, 2021 on Twitter.
The audio format has escalated since Clubhouse was officially launched in April 2020 and many other social platforms have hooked on to the audio trend. Read more about this in our previous post “The audio trend is accelerating: Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn are fighting for the podium”.
It remains to be seen if Android users will enter the Clubhouse app when Twitter launched “Spaces” as a competitor to the app for both Android and iOS globally in April. Android users are believed to have gone there immediately after patiently waiting to test the trending audio app. Is the android version of Clubhouse rolling out too late?
In a statement, Paul Davidson, founder of Clubhouse, said:
“With Android, we believe that Clubhouse will feel more complete. We are so grateful to all of the Android users out there for their patience. Whether you are a creator, a club organizer, or someone who just wants to explore, we are so excited to welcome you to the community.”
