Got it? Good! To use the app is simple- all you have to do is create a hotspot with the people around you (home, work, school, etc.), invite them to join the app, and then start sending messages. Already formed hotspots include:

  • The Venice Film Festival
  • Los Angeles County Museum of Art
  • The New Museum
  • Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
  • Portland Institute for Contemporary Art
  • The Walker Art Center
  • Boston Museum of Fine Arts
  • Museo Jumex

What are you waiting for? Start sending messages today and meet new people around you. (And maybe get one or two laughs with it!)

Side note: Somebody was created in partnership with fashion house Miu Miu as a “far-reaching public art project” that allows strangers to connect and let their inner actor/actress shine. The app and film debuted on August 28th and will continue to roll-out in museums around the world.
