Clubhouse now available on the Android OS

Clubhouse today released its beta version on Alphabet Inc’s Android app, allowing users to sign up and start using the chat room.

Until now, Clubhouse had only been available for iPhone users and by invitation.

In a blog post, the company said the app would roll out to other English-speaking markets and the rest of the world in the days and weeks ahead.

Users outside the U.S. will be able to pre-register for access via the Clubhouse page in the Google Play store to be notified when the Android app is available in their area.

Clubhouse says the platform will remain invite-only for now, meaning it’s still not open to just anyone, “as part of the effort to keep the growth measured,” the company said in a statement.

According to Sensor Tower, an app analytics company, downloads of the app have significantly fallen.

In February, it got 9.6 million downloads. In March, it fell to 2.7 million and then 900,000 downloads in April.

Clubhouse’s Android version launch comes at a time when companies like Facebook, Twitter, Discord, Spotify, Reddit and Microsoft Corporation’s LinkedIn, have either launched similar audio-only features or have announced plans to do so.

The app gained popularity last year after attracting people like Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and several high-profile celebrities, politicians, investors and entrepreneurs.

Clubhouse was valued at about $4 billion in its recent fundraise.
