For the very first year, Clubhouse was just available on iOS gadgets. Despite its early limited gain access to Clubhouse grew to 10 million users in its inaugural year, and was just recently valued at $4 billion after a new funding round. Whether it can keep up that momentum remains to be seen, as competitors– Twitters Spaces, Discords Stage Channels, and other better-known social media platforms– enter the audio market.
Clubhouse remains invite-only and has been criticized for not offering automatic captions for Deaf and hard-of-hearing users. The platform has lately concentrated on developers, and just recently revealed the results of an accelerator program which will fund 50 audio Clubhouse shows. CEO Paul Davison said throughout the weekly Clubhouse city center that next on the companys roadmap are in-room tipping for developers, paid events, and memberships.
After introducing its Android app a week back, social audio platform Clubhouse said Sunday it will present to more countries in the coming week. The Android app will be available in Brazil, Japan, and Russia on Tuesday, India and Nigeria by Friday, and the “remainder of the world” throughout the week.
