Clubhouse for Android managed to get 1 million users in 1 week.
The social voice app Clubhouse reached 1 million downloads on the Google Play Store just days after its global launch on the Android platform. The application first appeared on the platform as a beta on May 10, but was only accessible to users residing in the United States.
Clubhouse was first launched in March 2020 as an invite-only social media app for iOS, where users communicate in voice chat rooms with groups of up to 5,000 people. After major names such as Elon Musk, Oprah, and Mark Zuckerberg hit the platform, Clubhouse quickly gained popularity, reaching over 10 million users in just one year.
Despite its wider availability, the Clubhouse requests an invitation from an existing member for access. According to the company, this is because its team wants to ensure that it can manage the growth of its user base and continue to develop the app to support a wider audience.
The success of the application has attracted a large number of established competitors to the rapidly growing live sound field. Facebook has also announced that it is developing its own Clubhouse-like voice chat service. In addition, the Instagram Live Rooms feature has also been released. In December last year, Twitter launched an experimental voice-based chatroom called Spaces on iOS before expanding to Android in March. Also, other companies such as Discord, Slack, and Reddit have announced similar features.
