Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder, was called in his first meeting on Clubhouse, the now-famous invite-only conversation app. Gates was asked several questions ranging from the environment to technology.
In the past, Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared their thoughts about bitcoin and many other topics. This time around, journalists Andrew Ross Sorkin and Bill Gates came around to the topic of comparing iOS and Android. The
Clubhouse app is only available on the iPhone. But, since its popularity continues to grow, it might be available on other platforms in the future. The company may introduce it on Android but currently, users can find it exclusively on the App Store.
Since Gates was using an iPhone, he was asked whether he prefers iOS over Android. The Microsoft co-founder publicly said that he prefers Android over iOS due to some of the pre-installed software that functions better with this operating system. Gates said:
“I actually use an Android phone. Because I want to keep track of everything, I’ll often play around with iPhones, but the one I carry around happens to be Android.”
Sorkin then asked whether Apple vs Android is a religious thing to which Gates replied:
“Some of the Android manufacturers pre-install Microsoft software in a way that makes it easy for me. They’re more flexible about how the software connects up with the operating system. So that’s what I ended up getting used to. You know, a lot of my friends have iPhones, so there’s no purity.”
After Gates’ response, Clubhouse co-founder Paul Davison, who joined the room for a short time, said that an Android version of the Clubhouse app is the ‘top priority’ that the company is working on currently.
In that meeting, Bill Gates also said that he had an uneasy relationship with Steve Jobs but also quickly said that he was ‘unique.’ He also commented on several other topics that surround the climate change, global health crisis, and much more.
Most of the crypto investors and traders may prefer Android since some of the phones with this operating system come with in-built crypto wallets that are ideal for quick investments and trading activities. What are your preferences? Do you use iPhone or Android?
