We all know how difficult it can get sometimes when we try to find someone to share an activity with. This task becomes practically impossible, if you make a spontaneous decision to go to the movies, museum or art exhibition. Luckily, Who’s Down was specifically designed for such scenarios. This messaging app lets you know what your friends have scheduled and helps you find companions for events.
This Google-developed app bears resemblance to such apps as Swarm, Find My Friends and the earlier version of WhatsApp. A user indicates what activity he/she wants to undertake and sets a deadline on the offer. Moreover, the communication client is equipped with a special switch that changes user statuses as soon as they have some free time. Once your friends get notifications, they can offer you to hang out together or you can just chat in groups or in private. In addition to your existing contacts, users have the opportunity to find new friends, based on their interests or the selected event.
iOS and Android versions of Who’s Down are already available for free on the app stores. There is a catch, however: you can get your hands on the new app only if you’ve received an invite. Since the app is currently being beta-tested, you need to send an e-request to register for the software. What’s unusual in the registration process is that Who’s Down asks you to specify your alma mater. This is due to the fact that Google’s new product has a greater focus on college and university students, because they are the most active demographic in terms of event attendance.
Therefore, we can only hope that with the arrival of Who’s Down many users will find someone to attend an event with, and, if they are lucky, lifelong friends with similar interests.
