Last week we learned that Clubhouse was finally in testing for Android and now it has made its appearance on Google Play: it is available for download in the United States and as a pre-registration in the rest of the world.
The social network based on audio rooms is, therefore, one step closer to making the multiplatform leap, because since it rose to fame a couple of months ago on Google Play the only thing some many clones and copies have made apps like Instagram, Telegram, LinkedIn or Facebook.
Clubhouse comes to Android, and beta under invitation
If you wanted to try Clubhouse but have an Android phone, you are now closer to getting it. The application is finally available on Google Play, although officially its download only seems to be active in the United States. However, you can download and install it from its APK.
The Android version of Clubhouse appears to be identical to the iOS version, and included in that kinship is the concept that you still need an invitation to sign up. Without one, at the moment all you can do is reserve a username.
As mentioned before, its official availability begins in the United States, followed by “other English-speaking countries” and, later, the rest of the world. In those places where the application is not yet available for download from Google Play, it is possible to sign up for pre-registration.
Pre-registration will cause Google Play to send you a notification when it is available for download, but should not be confused with Clubhouse’s own invitation to participate in chats.
