Finally, after months and months of waiting, Clubhouse has finally released the beta version of its Android app. Earlier the app was only available for iOS users but because of the fact that more and more Android users have been showing interest in the app in recent months, Clubhouse has finally launched its Android beta version.
Clubhouse started working on the Android app back in January. At the time, the company announced plans to use the funds to create an Android app, scale its technology and infrastructure, and launch a new Creator Grant Program, thanks to the second round of funding led by Andreessen Horowitz. So far, the company seems to be sticking to its strategy, as it has begun beta testing the Clubhouse app for Android.
This news comes from Clubhouse’s latest blog post, highlighting some of the changes introduced on the iOS app. Furthermore, the post also revealed that the Android app is not live yet, but they have started rolling out a rough beta version to a handful of friendly testers.
Here are the all the changes introduced in the iOS app:
Clubhouse has gained a really good amount of popularity in such less time. Because of the app’s success, several competitors have developed their own Clubhouse alternatives, including Facebook, Telegram, Twitter, and Instagram.
As a response, Clubhouse must release its Android app as soon as possible or risk losing a large portion of its potential user base to Reddit Talk or Telegram’s Voice Chat 2.0, both of which are already available for Android users.
Clubhouse is yet to announce a release date for its Android version. However, because it’s already available in the beta channel for some users, we foresee a broader release in the coming weeks.
