Sharing the location is a trend and people are more and more willing to share their location privately with their friends whenever they are meeting in crowded places. Recently, the biggest social networks have launched timid features of location, but have forgotten a very important issue: people usually hang out in groups!
Wave application was born to precisely offer something that nobody had seen before: the option to open groups with friends to share their location with them in real time. This helps them to spot each other in crowded places, festivals or even on the mountains.
Wave Application has built a complete communication tool with navigation features, a chat and a map in with to share places with friends and see their whereabouts.
Sharing the location in a group is one more way to be connected with whoever you want and only when you want. So far, we have facilitated millions of sessions between friends, family members or work colleagues. That is why we have not stopped growing to reach more than 11 millions of users.
GROUP MAP WITH FRIENDS
To see how group location works, we can go to the menu and select “create a group”, then add directly all members we want and select the period of time for the session. Our most common wave lasts 15 minutes. However, we can set it up for more time or get the unlimited one that stops only when we want to. The latest one is very useful for those traveling together, going on a hiking tour or driving.
Once the group is created a request will be sent automatically to each contact and we are all set up! When the requests are accepted the group map opens showing all contacts at the same time. Then we can chat, share our suggestions to the meeting point and set one place on the map, take directions to get there or call an Uber.
When the time selected expires nobody will be able to share their location anymore. Privacy is our core value. We believe location is something personal that should be shared only when needed and not at all times. As users we know that we should be the ones to control tech to make our life easier and avoid being controlled by tech and third parties.
MEET PEOPLE THROUGH GROUPS
Groups are created to fulfil daily situations in which people meet up with friends or more people, change the place to stay, meet in crowded places or simply don´t know the city and how to get there.
Here at Wave we firmly believe that our millions of sessions opened are a sign that we are revolutionising the way people interact with others. Our technology is built specifically to provide the best design and solution for people’s lives and with the passion of doing it better and more precise than any other location service.
