The clubhouse is now open for everyone on iOS and Android, the developer has announced. The audio-only app has been an invite-only platform ever since it launched in beta last year. Initially, it was only available on iOS, but beta testing on Android started in May this year. Now, the developer Alpha Exploration has announced Clubhouse is out of beta and will not require an invite to join. The company has got a new logo and website as well.
Clubhouse released in April last year as an iOS, invite-only app in beta. It started gaining momentum and a lot of users joined in subsequent months to the point where celebrities were getting involved.
Earlier this year, billionaire CEO of Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk appeared on the app after which it blew up. Other platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, and Telegram, others started working on their own versions of a Clubhouse-like social audio platform. Now, Clubhouse is finally leaving beta and opening its gates to everyone who want to join on both Android and iOS.
"We know there will be many more ups and downs as we scale, and competition from the large networks will be fierce," the company wrote in its post.
Clubhouse said it had added 10 million people since launching on Android in May. Estimates from analytics firm Sensor Tower found the app had reached about 7.8 million global installs in June, up from 3.7 million the previous month.
