Clubhouse today announced the addition of 13 new languages to make it more accessible to people who want to see the platform available in their native languages. The 13 languages are – Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, French, German, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Portuguese (Brazilian) and Spanish.
In addition to the multiple languages, Clubhouse also announced a brand-new app icon, featuring musician, singer and songwriter Anirudh Deshmukh.
In the year or so since Clubhouse hit the App Store, we’ve seen millions of people meet, make friends, have deep talks, share ideas, hang out and even get married on the app. The variety of conversations is increasing each day — from Steve telling people how to load their dishwashers to entire rooms dedicated to debating cousin Greg’s true intentions in Succession. It has honestly amazed us that people in so many countries have managed to come together to do this on an app that only supports English.
Today, all of that is changing, as Clubhouse are rolling out their first wave of local language support. They are starting on Android with thirteen new languages launching immediately — including French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kannada, Korean, Malayalam, Portuguese (Brazilian), Spanish, Tamil, and Telugu. They will be adding support for iOS and additional languages soon, so that people from Mumbai and Paris to Sao Pãulo and Jakarta can experience Clubhouse in a way that feels a bit more native to them.
Of course, the platform couldn’t take such a momentous step without ushering in a new app icon, as well — Anirudh Deshmukh!
Anirudh is a part of an incredible corner of Clubhouse where hundreds of different languages are spoken. And just like his predecessor Mandiie Martinez, founder of the Chingona AF club, Anirudh is a multi-hyphenate human of many talents. He’s an architect turned singer, songwriter, composer, and more. Based in Mumbai, Anirudh joined Clubhouse at the start of the year and by the spring, had launched his now 72K member club, Anirudh, where he hosts his nightly show ‘Late Night Jam.’ Budding artists from around the world have come to love Anirudh for the authenticity and genuine support he shares, as he encourages them each night to take the stage and share their music, poetry, and life experiences.
