The Android version of the popular audio social network Clubhouse was developed in just 24 hours by Grigory Klyushnikov, a programmer from St. Petersburg, and published on GitHub on Feb. 20.
The audio social network is officially only accessible on iOS. On his Twitter account, Klyushnikov wrote that he had grown tired of waiting for the Android version and made one himself. The programmer called his unofficial application HouseClub.
You just need to download the APK file from your smartphone via this link in order to install the application on your Android smartphone.
Registration “should work,” according to the Russian developer, but to avoid errors, he suggests that you use an iOS device to register and then log in to an existing Android app account.
You can search and join rooms in the app, “raise your hand” (the feature that allows you to be invited to talk in someone else’s room), view and subscribe to people’s profiles, and edit your profile.
However, notifications and functions for creating and moderating rooms are lacking in the Android version. Klyushnikov can also not guarantee that the official management of the Clubhouse will not block users who use his app.
Klyushnikov claims that he doesn’t want to monetize the app or become famous, but instead says he “just wants to make the world better”.
