Clubhouse, which made a sudden debut last year and became one of the popular social media platforms, announced that it has begun testing for its Android version. However, the decrease in the number of downloads of the platform has raised questions of “is it too late”.
The expected move from Clubhose has finally arrived and announced that it is testing the Android version. The app is currently in closed beta; Therefore, tests are expected to take place in the coming weeks, involving more users.
In March last year, the app, which only came to the iOS app and received users through an invitation system, received unexpected attention.
Since then, almost every app for instant voice communication, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Spotify, Reddit, Discord, Telegram and Instagram, has started to work.
Due to this attack of real-time voice speech products, the charm of the Clubhouse has decreased slightly. The latest data from analytics firm Sensor Tower shows clubhouse downloads fell in March from the previous month. The app was downloaded only 900,000 times in April, after a record 9.6 million downloads in February.
In a statement shared with Insider, a Sensor Tower spokesperson said: “We are pleased to be able to use the “Clubhouse was down 66% from 2.7 million downloads in March, with nearly 922,000 downloads globally in April. According to Sensor Tower data, it was downloaded nearly 10 million times in February, a 300% increase from January, when 2.4 million people installed it.
The clubhouse also became a haven for Silicon Valley culture, with Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg joining conversations on the app.
IT’S GOING TO OPEN UP TO EVERYONE
The platform allows users to host their own voice calls and rooms or join others. You can still attend the Clubhouse only if someone invites you, but the company’s CEO Paul Davidson said the plan is to eventually open the app to everyone.
In April, the platform teamed up with payments company Stripe to allow users to send money to creators at the Clubhouse. The company said the tool is the first of many features that allow creators to receive direct payments.
Clubhouse was worth about $1 billion in January and was recently looking for financing that would give the app $4 billion.
