Live audio app is pushing towards a new record for monthly downloads, despite increased competition
Clubhouse’s hot start to June comes after rolling out its Android app midway through last month. And so far, the Android app has clearly helped Clubhouse get in front of more users; Clubhouse’s 3.8 million downloads in May represented a 312% increase from April, when the app was downloaded less than a million times. And out of the app’s 5.3 million downloads so far this month, 4.8 million are attributed to Android phones by Sensor Tower.
The spike in downloads is a welcome sight for the Bay Area-based app, which was co-founded last year by Paul Davison and Rohan Seth. After a strong start to the year, Clubhouse’s momentum stalled between March and April. And compounding matters, tech giants like Facebook and Twitter have looked to jump into the live audio space with their own Clubhouse clones in recent months — forcing Clubhouse to deal with new rivals at the same time it was working to finish its Android app.
India has been the primary market driving Clubhouse’s recent turnaround. The app has been downloaded 4.2 million times so far this month in India, which counts for 79% of its total downloads so far in June. Clubhouse has been downloaded nearly 26 million times overall since its debut, and the company recently reported it has 10 million weekly users.
