Clubhouse quickly ended up being a substantial success earlier this year, reaching over 8 million downloads in the iOS App Store in February. However, as the competitors grows, things are not working out for the audio-based social media network. A new report claims that the app registered around 900,000 downloads in April, dropping from a peak of 9.6 million downloads three months earlier.
According to a Sensor Tower research shown Business Insider, Clubhouse had 922,000 downloads worldwide in April 2021. This represents a 66% drop from the 2.7 million downloads in March– and ends up being even more significant when compared to the 9.6 million downloads Clubhouse had since February.
Sensor Tower information suggests that user retention of Clubhouse is still strong, which implies that the bulk of users who downloaded it still have the app installed. The considerable drop in the number of downloads is worrying for the company, as this indicates that fewer possible users are interested in its social network.
The company has attempted to stay pertinent by introducing a new feature to monetize live chats and even a program to help material developers, however that does not seem to be enough versus the competition. In current months, business like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Telegram, and even Spotify have actually presented their own live audio platforms that do essentially the same thing that Clubhouse does.
Twitter, particularly, has been succeeding with its audio platform called Twitter Spaces– which lastly became extensively available today to users on both iOS and Android. On the other hand, Clubhouse stays a practically iPhone-only app, as an Android beta version was only announced earlier today.
In spite of the business being valued at around $1 billion in January and trying to find new investors, the future of Clubhouse is now unclear.
