Introducing an easier way to invite people to your conversations

If you’ve updated your app recently, you may have noticed we’ve added a new way to connect with people on Orion: now, you can invite anyone to a conversation on Orion with a link.

Each group has a unique link, which means you can easily invite people who aren’t in your contacts nor on Orion. Now you can share links to conversations via text message, email, or copy and paste the URL anywhere, like in a calendar invite or on social media.

If the person you’ve sent the link to is already on Orion, clicking the link will take them directly to the group you’ve invited them to. If they are not on Orion yet, they will be taken to the app listing on the App Store or Google Play store to download the app.
