We're excited to announce our newest functionality: Hallow Family Groups. See below for a step by step guide on how to get started.

1 - Make sure your app is up to date by visiting either the Apple App Store or Android Google Play Store and clicking Update if it's an option. If not, it means it was automatically updated for you.

2 - Open up the App and navigate to the third tab labeled Community.

3 - Make sure the top right "Family" is selected by either tapping it or swiping right. To get back to the community Meditations just swipe left.

4 - Click Get Started

5 - Select a name for your group

6 - Select an emoji to represent your group

7 - Invite the members to your group. You can invite as many people as you want. Either click the Group Share Link to bring up the default options for sharing, or click Text or Email to share it. Your group members will receive a link to join your group. If they don't already have the app then they'll be first prompted to download the app and create an account. Then they'll have to return to the link you sent them and click it again to join the group.

8 - Congratulations! You've now created your first group. You can create as many more groups as you like by clicking the Add Group button. Or you can click into your Group to see your Group feed.

9 - Here you can add intentions simply by clicking the plus button at the bottom right.

10 - Or you can click details in the top right of the feed to edit the group name, mute notifications, edit your display name, delete the group, or add new members.

11 - You are also able to share prayers and journal reflections after you complete a prayer. After you complete a prayer, on the journal prompt, you can adjust your default sharing settings by clicking the "Private" button on the left above the keyboard. Your setting will be saved for future sessions, but you can adjust it at any time.

12 - After you click "Private" to change the sharing settings simply choose whichever groups (select as many as you'd like) to share your session and journal with.

13 - After you share your reflection your group will be notified via a push notification and the reflection & prayer will be posted to the group.

14 - Your group members will be able to click on the play button from within the feed and it will take them to the same session.

There you have it! Please please let us know what feedback you have. We are still hard at work to make sure we're building something that you love. Please email me at alex@hallow.app with any feedback.

Best,
Alex J
