The Clubhouse Android app is now available for download in India and worldwide
Clubhouse, the invitation-only social audio app, is now available for download on Android devices in India and worldwide. The Android version of the app began testing in the United States a few weeks ago, with the aim of strengthening its potential growth in the market. Previously, Clubhouse was exclusive to Apple’s iOS since its initial release in March 2020. The audio app gained popularity in the tech world shortly after being used by people like the CEOs of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, and Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg.
The Clubhouse Android app is available for download through Google Play Store and is compatible with devices running Android 8.0 or later. Although the Android version is now available, Clubhouse is still based on the waiting list and invitation system. This means that users will need an invitation from an existing user to register.
Dear everyone, everywhere: @Android is officially online worldwide!

The invitation-only model is designed to keep growth measured, the Clubhouse founders wrote in a blog post earlier this month. However, the company plans to open up more and attract “millions more from the iOS waitlist, expand language support, and add more accessibility features” to the application over time.
Clubhouse has attracted a large number of users after Elon Musk and other celebrities hosted audio chats on the platform earlier this year. However, after hitting the 9.6 million download milestone in February, the app’s downloads fell 72% to 2.7 million in March, according to mobile app analytics company Sensor Tower. The number fell further to 900,000 in April.
The growth triggered in early 2021 has attracted companies such as Facebook, Discord, and Twitter to enter the social audio space and bring their Clubhouse competitors. The app’s sudden popularity also helped its Indian replacement Lehar gain momentum.
If you want to experience the Clubhouse, you can either join the waitlist on the app or ask an existing user for an invitation.
