Just last week it was announced that the platform was conducting tests to implement the app on Android devices. “Today, we are delighted to share that Clubhouse for Android will begin rolling out in beta immediately,” they announced.
Until now, Clubhouse was only available by invitation on the Apple AppStore for iOS , that is, for iPhone and iPad devices . Its growing popularity and user demands made the creators of the app rush to jump to the cross-platform.
So you can download Clubhouse
In its initial phase, Clubhouse for Android will be officially available only for the United States from Google Play, although you can also install it from its APK . It will then spread to “other English-speaking countries” and finally to the rest of the world, the company noted.
“Our plan for the next few weeks is to gather feedback from the community, fix any issues we see, and work to add some final features like payments and club creation before rolling it out more broadly,” Clubhouse said in the statement.

You still need to be invited
However, “as part of the effort to maintain moderate growth” the platform will not yet democratize and will continue with the invitation system, “ensuring that each new member of the community can bring some close friends ,” they explained.
That is, even if you download it successfully, you will still need an invitation to sign up and start chatting. If you don’t have an ‘invite’, all you can do for now is download it or sign up for Google Play to send you a notification when it’s available to install. In any case, you can reserve your username at once; maybe it is not much, but it is already something.
