Clubhouse has reached 2 million downloads on Google Play Store. According to sources, Clubhouse will probably ditch the invite-only system and throw open the app to all users. The company pushed the audio-only app for Indian users on May 21 and tech-savvy enthusiasts accepted the app with great enthusiasm. Hence, the company is considering to abolish the invite-only system. If Clubhouse is available for all users, then you can easily register on the platform and upload your creations. As of this writing, there are over 10 million active users across the world.
Commenting on the development, Clubhouse tweeted that they are getting closer to feature parity to attain 2 million Android users every day. They are on the way for the general release in Summer. The upcoming builds will focus on the discovery, notifications, and improvements including bug fixes.
The company announced that it will continue with the current invite system to enable community members to bring their close contacts to the system. With Clubhouse, you can create groups with up to 5000 members, which is sufficient for an average user. We don’t think any user will make use of the whole 5000 members unless it’s part of a large group.
The company added that they have grown faster than expected. The main reason behind this is attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the popularity of the app has grown several times after the launch in India via the invite system. The company faced severe stress due to widespread server outages and notification failures. The load surpassed the limits of the early discovery algorithms developed by the company.
