Clubhouse just released a public beta for its Android device in the United States. According to a statement by apps analytics specialist Sensor Tower, the change came after its iOS app noticed a drop in the volume of downloads on the App Store. The apparent decline raised concerns about the app’s viability, as well as if its success is tied to individuals spending more time at home as a result of the pandemic.

India has never made it into the top 20 countries and has never been a key market for Clubhouse. With India leading the Android market, it’ll be interesting to watch if India figures into Clubhouse’s major strategy in the next weeks. Its most important markets to date have been the United States, Japan, and Europe, which account for a major portion of global downloads.
