Through their pop-up voice or audio messages, we can join different rooms to deal with all kinds of topics. Its success has been so great that the app already has more than a million users spread all over the world. In fact, its growth rate will increase in the coming months, as it will soon be available for all devices Android. If you don’t know exactly what Clubhouse is about and how it works, we’ll tell you all about it below.
Why couldn’t you use this social chat network (officially)
The application was officially launched in May 2020, although it was only available for devices ios. In addition, Clubhouse is not available to all audiences, since it can only be accessed through a invitation. Faced with this problem, a Russian programmer named Gregory Klushnikov, had an idea to be able to access it on all Android devices. Is about Houseclub, and it is nothing more than an unofficial version of the original for those of us who do not have a device Manzana.
You should know that to have access to Houseclub, you have to receive an invitation, just like in Clubhouse. This is done so that the original application is protected from third parties and not taken advantage of. Thus, if we use this non-original app, we may be expelled from the service and not be able to access the official one later. The decision depends entirely on each one, although it is not recommended to gamble, since this app has many disadvantages. For starters, we can’t create chat rooms, we don’t have access to different topics or categories, and we can’t add or follow other users.
But not everything is going to be bad news. Among the advantages it includes, the app offers the basic functions of the official version. To begin with, we can access the rooms to interact and listen to other users through the links they send us, put the podcasts in the background to listen to it with other open applications and we can know if the members leave or join each room in real time.
There is an application called Clubhouse on Google Play
If in the search bar of Google Play we start to look if Clubhouse is available, we find an application with the same name. A priori everything suggests that it is the original social network, but the truth is that It has nothing to do with it one with the other. It is a kind of project manager to optimize the organization of tasks and the monitoring of a job, so it is completely antagonistic to the original app. In fact, it has received a lot of criticism on Google Play, as according to users it is a way of cheating.
Steps to create a Clubhouse account on Android
As we said, we must wait until the next May 21th so that it reaches all Android devices around the world. Although it has been available in the United States for a few weeks, in this short time it has received a great reception from the American public. But if you don’t want to wait until the official launch day, you can anticipate events and download the application on your mobile through APK Mirror.
