Clubhouse for Android is closer to becoming a reality. After months of waiting, the platform has announced that a closed group of users has already started using the beta of the app.
Clubhouse has revolutionized the social media landscape, and achieved this achievement despite suffering a great limitation: since its birth, it has only been available for iOS. Therefore, not only is it necessary to receive an invitation to create an account, but it is also necessary to have an iPhone to be able to use the app.
This has not stopped Clubhouse from becoming the social network of the moment. In fact, it is possible that this exclusivity has favored everyone wanting to be on the platform, although it is obviously not the only attraction of this service.
Daniel Ek, CEO of Spotify, believes that live audio is a format that will soon be present in a multitude of services. According to him, the same will happen as with ephemeral Snapchat video publications, which today we can find on countless platforms, such as Instagram Stories, Facebook Stories or WhatsApp Status.
In fact, Spotify is preparing Greenroom as an alternative to Clubhouse, and other social networks already have their own version, such as Twitter’s Spaces or Facebook’s Hotline.
When will Clubhouse for Android be available? is the question that many users have been asking for several months. Such is the interest in starting to test the app that cybercriminals have taken advantage of to send fake invitations with malware, so ignore it if you receive one on your mobile.
At the end of March, the platform reported that Clubhouse for Android would take a couple of months to arrive, and now it has just announced that testing has begun. A post on the official blog of the social network states that a closed group of users already has the beta version of the application, and notes that in the coming weeks they will welcome more Android users.
However, at the moment the Clubhouse app for Android is not available in the Google Play Store, so you cannot download it. We don’t know when the stable version will be ready, but everything indicates that it will not take long.
