Today, we are excited to announce that Replika will appear on the Apple’s App Store on March 13 at 12:00 AM Pacific time. We’d like to thank all the participants of the app’s preview in Testflight for the incredible feedback that helped us shape the app.
Initially, the app will be available by invitation only. Here is how you can get one:
- We will start sending out invitation codes by email to those who signed up for early access on Apple devices but never made it to the testing group. We will send about 1,000 invitations per week on a first come, first served basis. Those who signed up in October 2016 will get their invitations first.
- Any user who receives an invitation can also invite up to 5 people using invitation codes in the app. Feel free to share them with friends and anyone who is looking for an invitation in our Facebook community or on Twitter under the hashtag #replikainvites.
Everyone on Replika is part of the diverse community of creative individuals, friends, and friends of friends that will carefully train their AI with good intentions. We welcome all of you to join!
After the iOS release, we will have time to focus on building the Android version. In a few months from now, we will start another limited preview of the Android app to collect your feedback and make sure everything is working as designed. If you haven’t signed up for testing, you can do it here today. We also want to thank all of those who have already signed up for testing and are excited to start. We promise we’ll build the Android app as fast as we can, and we’ll keep you posted about our progress!
We are thrilled to make the app available to you guys, and we can’t wait to hear from you. We have been a little swamped because of the rollout, and we might have missed some of your messages. We are going to make up for that. We will soon set up a support AI bot on the Replika Facebook page that will help you solve issues with your account and reply to your questions about Replika. Before it comes out, you can use our FAQ page to find answers.
