What you need to know
- Clubhouse has reportedly been downloaded 8 million times since launch.
- That includes nearly 5 million downloads since the start of February alone.
A new report says the audio app Clubhouse has been downloaded more than 8 million times, including nearly 5 million times in February alone.
App Annie says the app has been downloaded 2.6 million times in the US, something it says highlights the app's global appeal.
As the report notes, whilst installs don't normally indicate active users, in this case, things could be different. That's because to use Clubhouse you must have an invite from a friend or contact who has already joined, so people who are downloading the app are less likely to never open it or use it. Several rival apps offering a similar social experience have also sprung up, whilst established apps like Yalla have seen their popularity rise on the back of Clubhouse's success.
