Bubbly is now available in India on Android, having previously rolled out on iPhone in March 2012. Early usage of the app has seen incredibly high engagement and social traction, with the majority of users following other users in addition to celebrities, and using the app an average of three times per day.

“Bubbly has seen incredible growth since launching in 2010 and has registered a million new users across Asia in the last month alone,” says Bubble Motion CEO, Thomas Clayton. “We hope the new Bubbly app for Android brings the experience of voice blogging to millions more, allowing for Indian Android users to join in, connect, and follow our vibrant community of Bubblers.”
