During its first year, Clubhouse was only available on iOS devices. Despite its limited access, 10 million users joined in its inaugural year, and its value reached $ 4 billion. The app launched a beta version in the United States on May 9 for those who wanted to try it on Android, maintaining its structure of entry by invitation.
However, probably after this first year, the application will have to implement new features if it wants to remain a leader in its field, since other companies have started to develop audio applications such as Spaces de Twitter o Discord Stage.
Even so, Clubhouse has been widely criticized for not providing automatic subtitles for the deaf or hard of hearing, being an application dedicated 100 percent to audio, something that other applications have done. We will see how Clubhouse is embraced by the global public and how it adapts to Android users to determine its success.
