The popular Clubhouse audio-based social networking app has been limited to iOS users since its inception. It was launched in May of last year and has integrated over 600,000 users, also through an invitation-only system. It shows how popular the platform has become in a short period of time. Today, Clubhouse responds to one of its biggest user demands and brings Clubhouse to Android devices.

Yeah, Clubhouse is finally ready to end its iOS exclusive and has started working on an android app. Confirmation of this astonishing news comes from an official blog post, which reveals that the company has secured a new Series A investment. The funding round was led by Andrew Chen at a16z, the venture capital firm of Andreessen Horowitz.

The first course of action is the development of an Android application and it is coming soon. “From the very beginning, we wanted to build a Clubhouse for everyone. With this in mind, we are delighted to start working on our Android application soon ”, says the official blog.

The company will also begin work on additional features, including accessibility and location, which are high on the priority list. This will make Clubhouse accessible to more users. In addition, these funds will help evolve technology and infrastructure, develop support and security teams, and more.

The company plans to “Invest in advanced tools to detect and prevent abuse, and increase the functionality and training resources available to moderators”. The app is also looking to improve the ranking and discovery features to make it easier for new users to search and access the audio channels that interest them.

Clubhouse, for those who don’t know, is an audio social networking app. It is actively used by journalists, musicians and many others to hold discussions and discuss their topics of interest. There was even a Lion King musical staged at the Clubhouse in December. The application is developing rapidly and will welcome Android users very soon. It will compete with Twitter’s Spaces feature, which works in much the same way.

In addition, the company also plans to establish a Creator Grants program to support emerging audio creators. While this gives some creators a first boost, Clubhouse plans to monetize the platform soon. “We plan to launch our first tests to allow creators to be paid directly – via features such as tips, tickets or memberships” says the blog post. The app doesn’t support ads which is great.
