How do I invite my friends?

Airtime is all about getting together with family and friends in real time. Invite your squad directly to a Room or add people to your friends list so you can hang out later.

Inviting Friends to Rooms

Rooms are where the party happens. Adding your friends means you can group video chat, text message and even watch videos and listen to music together. Go on, invite your besties and family.

To invite someone to an existing Room:

  • Open the Room from the Rooms list view.
  • Tap the members list icon in the upper right of the Room.
  • Tap Add at the bottom of the members list.
  • Tap "invite” next to the name of the friends you’d like to add to the current Room.
  • Done! Have fun hanging out!

 

To create a new Room and invite someone to the Room at the same time:

  • From the Rooms list view, tap “Create” in the top right on iOS. On Android, tap the plus sign icon in the bottom right.
  • Give your Room a name (optional, but probably a good idea!).
  • Add all of the friends that you'd like to be in the new Room.
  • Tap Continue at the bottom on iOS. On Android, tap "Done" in the upper right.
  • You've just created a new Room with you and your pals--that’s great!

 

Inviting Your Friends to Use Airtime

To invite a friend to download the app via text message (SMS):

  • Tap the People icon at the bottom from the Rooms list view.
  • Tap “Add Friends” in the upper right of the People tab.
  • Tap “Add from Address Book.”
  • Tap “Invite” next to the contacts you’d like to invite to download Airtime.
  • Edit the automatically generated text message (SMS) as you see fit and send away! (With this option you will still need to add them to your friends list after they have downloaded the app.)

To invite by sharing your username: 

  • Tap on the profile icon in the bottom right of the Rooms list view on iOS. On Android, tap on the menu in the upper left. 
  • Tap on the share icon to share your username link anywhere, or simply copy your username link.
  • That's it! Your username will look like this: http://air.me/<yourusername>

 

Adding Another Airtime User as a Friend

To add by username:

  • Tap the People icon at the bottom from the Rooms list view on iOS. On Android, select the People tab.
  • Tap “Add Friends” in the upper right of the People tab on iOS. On Android, tap on the plus sign in the bottom right.
  • Tap “Add by username.”
  • Enter the username of your friend to find them on Airtime in the search bar.
  • Tap “Add” next to their username to add them as a friend on Airtime!

To add someone who is physically nearby (iOS only):

TIPS: This feature is currently only for iOS. Turn on Bluetooth on your device or join a Wi-Fi network that your friends who are physically nearby are also on.

  • Open Airtime and ask all of your pals who have Airtime already installed to do the same. 
  • Tap the People icon in the bottom right.
  • Tap “Add Friends” in the upper right of the People tab.
  • Tap “Add Nearby.” Then you’ll see a list of nearby people who have Airtime!
  • Tap “Add” next to each name to add them.
  • Now you’re friends on Airtime!
