Users can install it via PPA or as Snap. So anyone can install it on all the Linux distros which support Snap. There are lots of ways to install this app on Ubuntu or other Linux distros. Here I will be trying to give all those. You just need to choose the right one for your system.

How to Install Corebird Snap on Ubuntu and Other Linux Distros

Open the Terminal and run the following command to install this app as Snap on Ubuntu or any snap supported Linux distros:

Finally, my suggestion is to avoid Snap installation if your internet connection is slow because it requires more than 122 MB of data. In this case, follow the traditional one – install Corebird via PPA, which will take only 2.2 MB of data.
