During the lockdown, she was seen by many as a high-flyer: Now, after more than a year, the Clubhouse talk app has opened for everyone.

Previously, you had to be invited by a user.

In a blog post, the company announced that the waiting list system had been abolished.

Clubhouse is an audio app where you can listen to live conversations and also actively participate in discussions. In the pandemic, hype developed around the application, which according to market researchers has subsided. Clubhouse opposed the lifting of the entry restrictions, since the start of the Android version in May ten million users have been added. Before that, the app was only available on Apple's iPhones.

In the past few months, Facebook and Twitter launched their talk apps with similar concepts.

Clubhouse is convinced that it can hold its own against the overwhelming competition.

"We suspect that there will be many ups and downs in our development and that the competition with the large networks will be enormous," says the blog post.

"But we believe that the future will be shaped by optimists, and we look forward to building something new on the Internet."
