A brand new Google app for your iPhone, currently available on an invite-only basis in the App Store, wants to take the pain out of finding people who are free to hang out.

Aptly named Who’s Down, the 16.2-megabyte download comes with an easy to use user interface featuring a slider that, when toggled, tells the app to let others know you’re down to meet up, allowing you to see which of your friends are free to hang out.

You can customize what you’re down for (i.e. hanging out, movies, grab tacos, study, anything and so forth). And when you find friends who are free to hang out when you are, a built-in chat feature lets you discuss the specifics.

As a privacy precaution, toggling the slider shall make you available to others for no longer than three hours. Unfortunately, while the app provides a built-in list of popular activities to choose from, you cannot define custom things you’re down for.


As mentioned before, Who’s Down currently requires an invite to use.

The app requires an iPhone or iPod touch with iOS 7.0 or later and is localized in English, Arabic, Bokmål, Norwegian, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.

Grab Who’s Down at no charge in the App Store.
