Time is the most valuable resource on earth because no matter what happens we can’t make more time, unless of course we figure out time machines, until then how we spend our time is how we spend our life.
At IRL we are dedicated to building a social product that helps you spend more time together with friends and family, not more time on app. In the longest study ever done on happiness, the unequivocal take-away is that there is indeed a key to happiness: the quality of your relationships.
Today, and especially in this time of COVID-19, it’s easier than ever to spend time alone, and harder than ever to spend time together. Think of how much time we spend consuming content on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tiktok, YouTube, Netflix, and more. At IRL, we believe you can spend more of that time sharing with others. On a call in remote life, watching something together, playing together, or being together in real life when safe. Time Together is Time Together – whether virtually or in person.
Since we have launched IRL we have helped people plan over 300M hours of Time Together, now averaging about 1M hours a day. This is a very exciting start and we have learned a lot over the last year on how to help you make the most out of your time.
We are dedicated to providing the best ways to help you get the most out of life. Today we are excited to announce two great new features we hope will help you all spend more time together:
- Groups– We have all been a part of group chats and suggested events always get lost in the fray of memes and conversations. We are launching group calendars. An easy way to connect any upcoming events to any group you are already a part of. Just create the group on IRL and share the link in any group chat. It is viewable on web and easy to engage with on iOS and Android.
- College Event Network - It’s hard enough to keep up with everything happening on campus without a pandemic, with group chats and flyer boards dominating how we keep in touch with whats going on, it has gotten even harder without being able to be on campus. Today, we are announcing a college event network. Just sign in with your .edu and you get access to all calendars, events, and active groups on your campus. You can even make your own group and see who wants to join!
We are listening and learning about how to best serve you and this is just the beginning. So much more to come!
