After more than one year of being an iOS exclusive app, social audio platform Clubhouse is now releasing its Android app.

The app which will be available in beta on Google’s mobile OS today is still only allowing people from the US to sign up and participate in its audio-only chat rooms. The exclusive to a particular group of people definitely worked well the first time.

Clubhouse says the platform will also still remain invite-only, meaning it’s still not open to just anyone, “as part of the effort to keep the growth measured,” the company said in a statement.

“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,” the company said in a blog post.

If you live outside the US, you can pre-register for access via the Clubhouse page in the Google Play store, to be notified when the Android app is available in their area.

The move comes a tad bit too late, in my opinion, the excitement created by the app and the lack of availability prompted big tech firms to launch audio features of their own which means people get clubhouse features without having to switch apps and will find it hard to switch over, I know I will.

Twitter has already rolled out its own Spaces feature, Telegram has Voice Chats 2.0  and Facebook, and Reddit also now have similar audio-only features to their services.
