The audio social media platform Clubhouse, which was launched as an iOS-exclusive audio-chat platform back in September 2020; is now available for Android users in India and other parts of the world.
That being said, according to Mashable, those who want to sign up, still need an invite; either from an iOS user or a fellow user of the Android version.
Once invited, the sign-up process thereon will be smooth sailing.
However, Android users who’ve tried to sign up have reported that; the verification process hasn’t been working as advertised and people aren’t happy about it.
A lot of disappointed users have made their unhappiness known on the Play Store review section.
A number of them reported in the reviews section claiming that they haven’t been receiving verification codes and when they try re-entering their phone numbers; they’re either told that the number entered is incorrect or not supported.
To be fair to Clubhouse, this is a public beta and not quite the stable release of the app on Android; but the company should get working to fixing these elements within the app quickly before they lose more users.
As a platform, Clubhouse has been a super popular social media space in 2021; as more people are gradually let into what has traditionally been a fairly exclusive marketplace of ideas.
Though, it seems Clubhouse’s popularity has diminished over the past few months. As per Mashable; Clubhouse had 2 million downloads in January, and while it went up to more than 9.5 million in February.
Downloads have since dipped, with downloads in March dropping to 2.7 million followed by a further dip in April; when downloads dropped to below a million.
