The social media app announced the long-awaited availability for Android users during its weekly Town Hall last Sunday.

Since the 9th of May 2021 Android users in the U.S. will be able to download the app. Users around the world will be able to pre-register via the Clubhouse page in the Google Play Store to be notified as soon as the app is available in their area.

Clubhouse will continue to apply its invitation-only system — which allows existing community members to invite a handful of contacts — for Android users “as part of the effort to keep the growth measured,” according to a statement on the Android launch.

With Android, we believe that Clubhouse will feel more complete. We are so grateful to all of the Android users out there for their patience. 

The announcement comes a week after Clubhouse announced beta testing had begun for a “handful of friendly testers.”

In a statement Clubhouse said:

“Today, we are thrilled to share that Clubhouse for Android will start rolling out in beta immediately. We will begin gradually, with the U.S. today, followed by other English-speaking countries and then the rest of the world. Our plan over the next few weeks is to collect feedback from the community, fix any issues we see and work to add a few final features like payments and club creation before rolling it out more broadly.”
