Honk is the new way to make friends and chat in real-time, with messages shown live as you type!

Meet new friends who share your interests and see every message typed in real time, with all the typos, awkward pauses, and emotions you’d normally miss. There's no chat history or send button, so it's all 100% live and in the moment.

And if you need a break from typing, just jump into instant audio calls with new people from around the world and answer fun icebreaker questions in real time!

Happy Honking!

What’s New

Version 1.5.7

It's now possible to set custom reactions & quick reactions for each friend, instead of just across the whole app! This means you can customize your set of reactions for each chat, instead of using the same set for every single friend. This helps you keep every friendship and chat totally unique.

To start creating personalized reactions for each friend, just tap someone's profile picture in a chat to open up the chat settings, and edit things directly from there.

Happy Honking!

This app is great!!!

this app is so fun and i love using it ive made like 5 friends already. yeah i love i had it for abt a day now 😁😁. i love the pronoun thing because i don’t have to ask anymore AND I LOVE THE ZODIAC THING😍😍. cause i hate geminis (nothing personal y’all are just idk) and when i see a capricorn i get so excited because i love capricorn’s 💯💯💯.ANYWAYS i love the people on there super cool supa rad 😫 i do wish there was a way to have like custom colors not just the templates but that’s just a small change it doesn’t really matter. also it would be nice to see the people you recently talked to (not just friends) so like you could request them because i’ve lost like 3 besties i made😃😃🤌🏽. BUT YES I LOVE THIS and the honk button is amazing 🏃‍♀️🌟

I love the app its such a fun way to talk to people but there are a few issues. When I leave a chat for someone to see and leave and come back later I see that the last few letters of the chat were deleted, this has happened a lot. Also notifications in the app glitch sometimes to where it wont go away, not a huge deal since exiting and opening the app again fixes the issue. Other than the issues I think theres a few things that would make the app more enjoyable. Group chats would be a really great add since only having be able to talk to one person at a time can be limiting. This one might be a stretch but I think adding a little time somewhere on someones message profile when you click them showing their timezone and what time it is for them currently would be a great add since the honk feature can be annoying for someone if its late at night. The person would see that it is late at night for them and not bother them. Adding to this another idea would be to add an ability to create an online status, i.e. "online" "sleeping" "busy" etc. etc. to show if they are busy or not. This being able to be changed by the person.

Thank you for the detailed review! We're so glad you're having fun. We totally hear you on the issues you've mentioned though. We're looking into fixing the bug surrounding the last few letters of chats, as well as improving the notifications. Please keep an eye out for those improvements!

Aside from that, your suggestions are great and super creative. Group chats would definitely be cool, and the idea around timezone is incredibly unique and something we'll be sure to pass onto the team. Statuses are also a great idea, and something we know quite a few people want. We'll continue to improve the app and appreciate all of your feedback, and thanks again for the kind words!

Like a real conversation!

It’s all real time, which is such a cool concept for a texting app. I hate calling people, but if I want a conversation that feels more genuine and personal than normal texting, this is it! I love how easy it is to type something and then just press the button in the bottom right to clear it. I was a bit worried since this is a new app that they wouldn’t have such conveniences, but I was mistaken. I’m also a big fan of magic words! You type something and a flurry of emojis appear. Also love how cute the symbols are for when you honk, and that the sound isn’t annoying! I hate the beeps and rings of normal notifications so this is good! My only problem is that the text bubble gets too full, too fast, and I think the text size should have an option to be lower. Also, I heard that they are working on group chats!?? Which would be really cool, but also pretty chaotic. That’s will probably be part of the fun tho, lol! If they make the text sizes adjustable I’ll make my review a 5! Happy honking

Thanks so much for the amazing review! We definitely understand where you're coming from when it comes to the text bubbles getting full quickly. This is something we're looking into, so please stay tuned! And yes––we're working as hard as we can on group chats. We're a small team, so we appreciate your patience. Thank you!
