We’re really excited to announce the launch of Highlight, available for free in the App Store. Highlight is a simple, passive app that helps you learn more about the people around you.
If someone standing near you also has Highlight, their profile will show up on your phone. You can see their name, photos of them, mutual friends, and anything else they have chosen to share. When you meet someone, Highlight helps you see what you have in common with them. And when you forget their name at a party a week later, Highlight helps you remember it.
As you go about your day, Highlight runs quietly in the background, surfacing information about the people around you. If your friends are nearby, it will notify you. If someone interesting crosses your path, it will tell you more about them.
We are just getting started with Highlight and there is so much that we are still figuring out, but the experience we’ve had with our beta has been really exciting. Knowing more about the people around you makes life more fun. People talk more, they see more hidden connections, bump into friends more often, and remember more details about each other. It’s like having a sixth sense that you didn’t have before.
We’re thrilled to be opening Highlight up more broadly today and we’d love for you to let us know what you think. You can reach us anytime via email
