Clubhouse App Is Now Available For Android Users World-wide


Finally, it's here! The invite-only social audio app, Clubhouse, is now available for Android users all around the world on the Google Play Store

The clubhouse app was exclusive to Apple's iOS since its launch in March 2020. The app gained popularity shortly after it was used by SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Facebook Co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, and a host of other celebrities.

However, after the app reached a milestone of 9.6 million downloads in February this year, the app began to see a decline in download that fell 72% to 2.7 million in March. The number even dropped further to 900,000 in April.

To bolster its growth, the Android version of the Clubhouse app was rolled out for testing in the US market. 

The Clubhouse app is compatible with devices running Android 8.0 or later. However, the app is still based on the waitlist and invite system, meaning that anyone that wants to signup will need an invite from an existing user to signup.

According to the founders of Clubhouse, the invite-only model is designed to keep the growth measured.

"We've always taken a measured approach to growth, keeping the team small, building in public, and getting feedback from the community along the way," Clubhouse blog post read. "When you scale communities too quickly, things can break. So we started Clubhouse on a single platform and have expanded gradually through an invite model."

Clubhouse's growth has attracted companies such as Facebook, Discord, Telegram, and Twitter to enter the audio space and compete with Clubhouse.
