The global rollout of Clubhouse for Android is imminent. Expanding what a few days ago we commented, there are already definitive dates to obtain the application from Google Play.
A limited selection of countries will receive access to the official download of the application in the first days, and then gradually extend the scope, until reaching global coverage at the end of the week.
Clubhouse for Android and its definitive expansion week
The following days are very important for Clubhouse plans in the near future. Through its Twitter account, the social audio messaging platform confirmed its final schedule for the official release of its Android app.
Android rollout continues!
🇯🇵🇧🇷 🇷🇺 Japan, Brazil & Russia coming Tuesday
🇳🇬🇮🇳 Nigeria & India on Friday AM
🌐 Rest of world throughout the week, and available worldwide by Friday afternoon

Clubhouse for Android will be available in Brazil, Japan and Russia starting this Tuesday, May 18. On Friday the 21st it will be the turn of India and Nigeria for Friday. The remaining days of the weekend should be the corresponding ones for the rest of the countries.
Despite the expansion of this app to a new market, it should be remembered that Clubhouse keeps the user registration limited only for those people who arrive with an invitation.
This openness to an audience that would eventually be broader, would be accompanied by the implementation of new tools for content creators, such as exclusive rooms for creators, paid events and subscriptions.
With this move, the leap to Clubhouse Android would be sealed. This situation reminds us of the beginnings of Instagram, which after two years of exclusivity for iPhone, launched an Android version of its app in 2012.
In this case, the expansion has been considerably faster. The interesting thing will be to observe from now on what direction this network takes to establish itself in a medium in which more social networks have expressed interest in this same communication format.
Clubhouse has some weak points yet. For example, in terms of accessibility, there is no access to tools such as automatic captions or other guidance for the hearing impaired. As the application is still evolving and consolidating, it could make a difference if you implement solutions of this kind in the future.
Meanwhile, we can wait for the official arrival of the app registering in advance on Google Play.
