After an earlier private beta last week, Clubhouse today announced it would make its debut on Android following an earlier announcement this year. The app had taken off in the heyday of the pandemic and had spawned many followers, but had neglected the Android market for a while. There are a few caveats. This is still a beta, it’s still invitation-only and you have to be in the US to use it (although an expansion to other English-speaking markets has been promised.) Writing on the Clubhouse blog, the team said: Our plan for the coming weeks is to gather community feedback, resolve any issues we see and work to add a few final features, such as payments and club creation, before rolling it out more widely. […] As part of the effort to keep growth measured, we will continue the waiting list and invitation system so that every new member of the community can bring some good friends.

During the pandemic, Microsoft proactively worked to ensure that student education is not affected and that learning opportunities are maximized. This ranged from providing vouchers for certification exams to optimizing Microsoft Teams as the go-to platform for all respective educational purposes.

Microsoft has added several new features to its Teams platform in recent months. The company has now come up with a new feature that lets you cast to a Teams Room device from the Teams app on an iOS or Android device.
