Clubhouse is presently a sensation for social media operators. This app has over 8 million downloads globally. Well, its downloads may be reduced soon as many larger and more popular apps are copying its operation. The likes of Twitter, Mi Talk (Xiaomi), TikTok, and Instagram, Telegram, and others already have or are working on their version of Clubhouse. Back in January, Clubhouse announced that it will commence work on Clubhouse for Android. However, it did not give any time frame for the release of the app.
Nevertheless, the company has always stated the importance of having an Android version. Finally, Clubhouse has now given a vague time frame for the arrival of Clubhouse for Android. Recently, Clubhouse co-founder, Paul Davison, stated that it is working really hard on its Android version. According to him, it will take a “couple of months” for the app to arrive. It appears that this app will be available sometime in the late spring or summer of 2021.
