Clubhouse released the Android app when the download numbers started to drop.
Live audio app Clubhouse said it will begin offering a test version of its app to Android users in the US on Sunday to reach a wider audience.
The app, which increased in popularity earlier this year after the famous billionaire Elon Musk and others took part in voice chats, began to be copied by startups in addition to major competitors such as Facebook and Twitter.
The application was only available to Apple users and by invitation. In some markets, such as China, invitations were highly sought-after auctions on online markets, but the app’s downloads dropped significantly, which is also a measure of its popularity.
Falling in Popularity
According to Sensor Tower, this number peaked at 9.6 million downloads in February, dropped to 2.7 million downloads in March and then to 900,000 downloads in April. The decline sparked questions about whether the app’s long-term viability and success owes in part to people spending more time at home during the pandemic.
With the long-awaited Android launch, Clubhouse is expected to reach more new users around the world. The Android version will reach other English-speaking markets and then the rest of the world days and weeks after the US market beta launch. The Category Clubhouse faces competitors like Facebook, where its CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced a range of audio products, including Clubhouse-style live sound rooms and a way for users to find and play podcasts in April.
In January, Twitter said it will introduce the “Spaces” feature, where users can log into live voice chat rooms for a fee to attract more creators. This feature of Twitter has been available to Android users since March.
