Last month, Clubhouse co-founder and CEO Paul Davison had confirmed that the company plans to launch an Android app of the app to users in May and now keeping up with its promise, the company has started testing the Clubhouse app for Android on the beta channel.
On its blog post, the company revealed that it has started rolling out a rough beta version of its Android app to a few testers, with plans to “welcome more Android users…over the coming weeks.”
Clubhouse, which is an invite-only app that offers audio chat rooms has been the talk of the town for a while now and various big players of the social media domain have been working or already rolled out a similar functionality on their portals.
As of now, there is no detail on how Android users can sign up to become a beta test of the app or by when the Android Clubhouse app will be publicly rolled out. However, the demand of the Clubhouse app among Android users seems to rife as back in March Google Play Store was being flooded with clone apps of Clubhouse.
These apps were flagged by WeLiveSecurity as a platform via which, “cybercriminals are trying to take advantage of the popularity of Clubhouse to deliver malware that aims to steal users’ login information for a variety of online services.”
The report had detailed that the malicious package, which comes with a trojan nicknamed “BlackRock” by ThreatFabric, is served from a website that has the look and feel of the authentic app. Once the victim is looped into downloading and installing BlackRock, the trojan tries to steal their credentials using an overlay attack.
