Clubhouse Adds 1 Million Users On Android In A Week

The audio-based social media startup Clubhouse said on Sunday it has doubled its subscriber base to more than two million new users on the Alphabet Inc-owned GOOGL GOOG Android mobile operating system, weeks after expanding the services to users outside the iOS ecosystem.

What Happened: The San Francisco-based startup that lets participants host or listen to live conference-call-style conversations started rolling out the services to Android users from May 9 after being an iPhone-only service for nearly a year.

Why It Matters: The buzzy app has stirred rival social media companies such as Facebook Inc FB, Microsoft Corp-owned MSFT LinkedIn, Twitter Inc TWTR in rushing to build their own versions of audio social media apps.

The startup, barely a year old, shot to prominence after securing endorsements and appearances earlier this year from celebrities such as Tesla Inc TSLA CEO Elon Musk and Facebook's Mark Zuckerburg.
