Last month, Clubhouse Co-founder and CEO Paul Davison had confirmed that the company plans to create a Android The app’s app for users in May and now keeping its promise, the company has started testing it Clubhouse App for Android on the beta channel.
In its blog post, the company announced that it has started rolling out a rough beta version of its Android app to some testers, with the goal of “welcoming more Android users in the coming weeks.”
Clubhouse, an invite-only app that offers audio chat rooms, has been the talk of the town for some time, and various big players in the social media domain have been working on their portals or have already rolled out similar functionality.
There are currently no details on how Android users can sign up for a beta test of the app or until when the Android Clubhouse app will be publicly launched. The demand for the Clubhouse app among Android users seems to be increasing, however, as the Google Play Store was already flooded with clone apps from Clubhouse in March.
These apps have been identified by WeLiveSecurity as a platform through which “Cyber criminals are attempting to take advantage of Clubhouse’s popularity to deliver malware that aims to steal user credentials for a variety of online services.”
The report detailed that the malicious package delivered by ThreatFabric containing a Trojan horse nicknamed “BlackRock” is being served by a website that has the look and feel of the authentic app. Once the victim is looped into downloading and installing BlackRock, the Trojan attempts to steal their credentials using an overlay attack.
