Clubhouse, the popular audio chat platform, has registered over one million users in a week on Android. The platform recently rolled out for Android users in several markets, including India. Before this, Clubhouse remained exclusive to iOS.

Clubhouse announced the progress at its Townhall held on Sunday, reports TechRadar. The company said it would make efforts to make the Android version on par with its iOS counterpart. According to reports, several Clubhouse users on Android had complained about broken features. Some users also took it to the review section on Google Play Store to complain about the issues, such as not receiving verification codes.

"We are working really hard to get the feature parity in the Android version similar to that of the iOS. It is very important to us that the app has the same set of features,” Paul Davidson, co-founder of the platform, is quoted as saying.

The report added that India had played a role in driving the user base for Clubhouse on Android.

Clubhouse’s Android version is likely to give the viral audio app a new lease of life. In markets such as India, Android continues to hold a large share of the market. Most popular social apps, including Facebook and WhatsApp, have India as one of their biggest markets in terms of user base.

The rollout will also help Clubhouse better compete with several tech firms which are working on or have already launched their audio service. For instance, Twitter has already expanded Spaces to Android. Facebook’s Clubhouse rival has already gone into public testing. Microsoft’s LinkedIn and others are also likely to introduce their versions very soon.
