The news came from developer Mopewa Ogundipe, who said he visited the Clubhouse office. The developer said in a post he shared on his Twitter account: “If you know me, you probably only know my thoughts on iOS apps. So I’m excited to join the team dealing with importing the social network to Android.”

Today was my first day at @joinClubhouse
If you know me, you probably know I have *opinions* about iOS only apps 😆 so I'm v. excited to be joining the team to bring the party to Android ✨
There was a data leak
The development phase and size of the team are not specified, but the service is likely to appear on the Android platform in the near future. The Clubhouse social network launched in March 2020, but there was a very rapid growth in service at the beginning of 2021. Over the course of 16 days in February, the social network’s audience doubled and increased from 3.5 to 8 million users.
Despite this, some users started to worry about the privacy of data on the service. On February 22, it turned out that an unknown user was able to broadcast conversations from “many rooms” on a third-party site. A Clubhouse spokesperson said the social network permanently blocked the perpetrator and introduced new safety rules. Some researchers believe the platform cannot provide data protection.
