The Monzo Current Account Preview comes to Android!

I’m an Android user and registered my interest a while ago - the ‘register interest’ form always allowed you to select Android so is it worth re-registering?


Good to know and if I was eligible would register interest but not had my account long enough.

In the end, it was turned around in 3 weeks. Good work! :raised_hands:

Down in London tomorrow to Thursday. Hopefully I’ll be able to get one.

(Tristan Thomas) #6

Nope, all good :slight_smile: You’ll still be registered in the form!

I’ve been a beta tester of the Android App for several months now and flagged the odd thing during this time, just wondering is the selection process for Android current accounts random or will people who’ve been on the beta testing for a while get the opportunity to come on board first?

I dont want to hear about being at the top of list again :slight_smile:

Out if the 676 helping so far, how many of these are investors? I had hoped that being an investor would give early access, but this does not appear to be the case. Being in the far north of Scotland, it’s not that easy to pop into London!

Being an investor should put you at the top of the queue (followed by pledgers) when the full current account is released. This is just a preview of the current account which has some significant caveats.

Dammmn @tristan :smiley: That’s super exiting news!! :slight_smile:

Fingers crossed for an invite :crossed_fingers: I wonder how much a train ticket will cost… :thinking: Yay for not being located outside of London :sweat_smile:

Out of interest, how is the app going to be distributed on Android? A private beta app on the Play Store? Or a manually installed APK? :slight_smile:

(Tommy Long) #13

They asked for my Play email address earlier when completing the EventBrite invite, so I’m guessing the former.

(Marcus Nailor, Hot Coral Detective) #14

Cheers! :slight_smile:

(Marcus Nailor, Hot Coral Detective) #15

Train tickets aren’t too expensive thankfully! :smiley:

I do wonder what happens if one wasn’t able to attend after being invited? Would one be re-scheduled? Or put back into the pool of users? :slight_smile:

(Richard Drinkwater) #16

Received an invite but unable to attend as I’m out of the country, can I still get the current account without attending, I am also an Investor, how long until I would receive the account if I have to wait?

You need to physically appear in the office, I’m afraid. Blog says it quite clearly:

For now, that means you’ll need to be in London or able to travel to London if you’re invited to an event.

Monzo didn’t set any real dates yet. Not too long though, because investors are in first round once preview period is completed. :slight_smile:

(Hugh) #18

Can’t wait! Good news that Android is keeping up with IOS :wink:

(Richard Drinkwater) #19

Great, thanks for the quick reply!!!

Guess I will just have to be patient :blush:

(Adam Heath) #20

Yep, I have to say I’m impressed. Despite being initially disgruntled that Android users were left feeling neglected for the CA preview this has been a super quick turnaround, this certainly restores any lost faith :flushed: :relaxed:


Thanks very much for the hard work!
