ClubHouse, the new trendy social network that’s captured the attention of high profile influencers and celebrities has announced the launch of it’s Android version which could come as early as May. From the moment its co-founder Paul Davison announced that the network were working on a new version, speculation and leaks in the company’s public profiles have been continuously published. Most recently, Mopewa Ogundipe, an Android developer at ClubHouse shared a screenshot on her profile of what the application would look like on Android. Later on, Morgan Evett, another Clubhouse developer announced a few days ago that the launch was expected during May.
Clubhouse, an app released just last year, is a social network in which users can share content only with their own voice. Users on the app can create presentations, join and contribute to those of followers, or simply attend as a listener. Other content on the app has revolved around round tables, private concerts, press conferences, events … The possibilities are endless, as for example, a popular event by Elon Musk, co-founder of PayPal, recently gathered more than 5,000 participants.
The reason for its popularity may be due to its “exclusive invite” model or that public figures such as Drake, Elon Musk, Ashton Kutcher or Mark Zuckerberg have an active profile in Clubhouse. Despite being only available on iPhone devices and only being accessible by invitation, last month the platform had already exceeded 10 million users worldwide.
This is good news for brands and professional profiles already thinking about including monetization options in their marketing strategy. Clubhouse has said they are testing this system with users in the United States and it is expected that it will soon be a reality for all users. If this functionality is launched, it would put the platform one step ahead of competitors such as Twitter Spaces, its main rival.
