The invite-only, audio-only, iPhone-exclusive social media app, Clubhouse has announced that it is working on an Android app. Meaning Android users will get to use the Clubhouse app very soon.
Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, various social media apps have positively gained from it. One of such apps is the Clubhouse app. It is a one-of-a-kind audio-only social media app that has seen tremendous growth over the last few months.
It is an invitation-only service, which means only invited members on the Clubhouse app can interact with each other, and that too by voice. No stories, no fleets, no snaps, and no photos.
In fact, you can see Clubhouse as an app that is more natural, as you have to share your emotions or feelings via the most powerful expressing tool, your voice. You cannot hide your emotions behind those fake smiles in your photos.
Exciting as it may sound, the Clubhouse app is currently available on iPhone. It is a highly popular social media app that has garnered over 600,000 registered users. Soon Android users will also be able to use it.
In an official blog post, Clubhouse announced that it has successfully secured a second round of funding led by Andreessen Horowitz through the firm’s partner, Andrew Chen.
Using this new fund, Clubhouse wants to introduce new products, one of which is an Android app
Clubhouse says that it will use the new fund to introduce new products. This includes an Android app to bring its unique service to the Android user base.
This is a nice move by Clubhouse as the Android user base is far more widespread as compared to iPhone’s. The company has a great opportunity to become even more popular.
Besides, Clubhouse is also excited to use the new funds to scale its technology and provide faster support to its users. In the future, the app will improve ranking and discovery.
The company is also planning a new Creator Grant Program to support creators on the platform. We all know a creator’s importance on a social media platform.
The new grant will not only reward creators to join Clubhouse and help popularize the app, but it will also help the platform make some money in the process. So nice move Clubhouse.
The clubhouse does not support ads and is currently available for free. Twitter is also not far behind, and it recently started testing a Clubhouse-like feature called Spaces.
Sure, Twitter has a large audience, but Clubhouse users are Clubhouse users. It is similar to iPhone users being iPhone users, you cannot compare them with Android users.
