Having gained a sizable iOS user base, Clubhouse began work on its Android app earlier this year. At the time, the company secured a second round of funding and shared plans to use the funds to develop an Android app, scale its technology and infrastructure, and implement a new author grants program.
It looks like the company is still sticking to its plan as it has already started testing the Clubhouse Android app on the beta channel.
Clubhouse recently shared details of their latest blog post, highlighting some of the changes they made to the iOS app. The post also said the company has begun rolling out a beta version of its Android app to multiple testers with plans to “welcome more Android users in the coming weeks.”
For those who don’t know, the Clubhouse app is currently only available on iOS. The app’s popularity has prompted several competing platforms, including Facebook, Telegram, Twitter, and Instagram, to develop their own Clubhouse alternatives.
Therefore, it makes sense for Clubhouse to release its Android app as soon as possible, otherwise, the company could lose a significant chunk of its potential user base, which might opt for Twitter Spaces or Telegram Voice Chat 2.0 already available on Android.
The clubhouse has not released a release schedule for its Android app at this time. But since it is already available to users on the beta channel, it is expected to be released to all users soon.
