Clubhouse is a new social network that has been available for a while now, but it has received a lot of attention in recent weeks – something that has even made Twitter and Facebook work with competitors for the app. A new report indicates that Clubhouse, which is so far exclusive to iOS, has already been downloaded 8 million times on the App Store.
Based on data from the research company App Annie (via TechCrunch) the Clubhouse app reached 8.1 million global downloads on the iOS App Store on February 16, 2021. By comparison alone, the app had registered 3.5 million downloads by February 1, 2021. Research reveals that the app has become extremely popular in the UK, Germany, Japan, Brazil and Turkey.
The high numbers may be related to several influencers and high-profile people who interact with other users on the social network. As an example, Tesla founder Elon Musk and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg have already set up a clubhouse account and interacted with other users there. Other celebrities and high-profile people have also used the new app.
These numbers become even more impressive when you consider that Clubhouse is an iPhone-only app, and it requires an invitation – which may also be one of the reasons why the app has become so popular, since people are curious about it. Meanwhile, Twitter has expanded the Spaces audio feature to more users, and Facebook is reportedly working on a clubhouse competitor.
If you are interested in trying Clubhouse, you can download the app for free on the App Store and reserve your username until you receive an invitation from a friend.
