Clubhouse Crosses 1 Million Downloads on Play Store
Now, Android users can install Clubhouse from Play Store officially. The clubhouse team has made the much-talked software available globally on iOS and Android platforms. The live audio chat platform is receiving a grand opening on Play Store. Up to now, it has crossed 1 million downloads within four days of its launch.
Users are still running here and there to receive the invitations from the existing subscribers. That is demotivating few users.
Before launching the android version globally, the Clubhouse team launched an Android beta program in the US to check all its operations. Once the team got satisfactory results, they made it available for all.
If you are using an android mobile having Android 8.0 or above, you can install Clubhouse. The company is also bringing a payment feature in its popular app very soon.
It was March 2020, when Clubhouse was launched for iOS users. The app has crossed 15 million downloads on App Store.
The social audio app saw a surge in its user base due to the business giant Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg. They both joined the app within few days of its launch.
Elon Musk also conducted a session on Clubhouse with other known CEOs. On the other hand, Mark Zuckerberg observed the Clubhouse features and started building audio-based products secretly.
Competitors of Clubhouse
Recently, Facebook has announced different audio-based products including Tiktok like a short audio platform, the audio player in Facebook to listen to podcasts, and an audio room feature for Facebook and Messenger.
Not only Facebook, but Twitter has also launched Spaces, an audio-based chat feature on the Twitter platform.
