Some of the things you can do in the Kin app, and how to do them.


How to create a group, add and invite a friend


Groups are the heart of the Kin app. 

Being with other people is good for our emotional wellbeing. They make happy times more memorable and hard times more bearable. Usually, this is a state we naturally gravitate to.

And when it comes to human endeavour, 1+1=3. We can achieve collectively what we can’t alone. We complement each other’s skills and amplify each other’s ideas. Two imaginations and ideas are better than one.

Here's how to create your first Kin group 


  1. On your home screen, you will see a pink round icon at the top.
