What does it do?

It brings spontaneous and serendipitous conversations back to remote and hybrid working. In doing so, it helps cross-company communication, it helps with productivity, and it helps with mental health.

Why do we need it?

Working remotely can make you feel isolated. If you’re having a bad day, it’s very hard to talk to an old friend at the water cooler to lift your mood. When remote, you don’t bump into people anymore, and those chance encounters are lost.

Who is it for?

Anyone who works remotely at least some of the time. But it can work in other scenarios too: keeping in touch with a lonely relative, or a child who’s gone off to university: talk when convenient, without needing to schedule anything.

What makes it stand out from the crowd?

We focus on small groups in a conversation, and it’s audio only: removing the pressure to stare at a screen. We can randomly add you to existing groups of your friends, colleagues, or family, to help cultivate new connections.

What’s next?

Understanding how Walk Together can meet needs beyond remote working. Keeping extended families in touch without the fear of interrupting whenever you pick up the phone. Advanced features around notification schedules.
