TubeChat is the only free to download iPhone group messaging app that works on the London Underground where there is no cellular or wifi. TubeChat uses Bluetooth on your iPhone to make automatic incognito connections to people with the same app up to 200 meters away allowing you to chat and play underground. Now your phones are fun again once your train has left the platform.

Chat innovation

Tube Chat was miraculous and connected me with people on the tube (TFL) who I would never speak to and crazy part was turned out we had mutual friends.

This created an interesting interaction for me and helped me on a separate occasion find my friend on a platform where there wasn’t any WiFi (shocker). Tube chat saved the day !!

Try it out and see what happens for you 🔮

Awesome and fun app

Just used it today after reading about it in Evening Standard. Connected with four different people on the Jubilee line. We started with ice breakers and played a game. Made the commute a lot of fun. The best part was exchanging smiles with the other users IRL. First time this ever happened! Waiting for new adventures. Get the app!

Games & Flirting on the underground 😱 The Tube community must have been dreaming of this App since it’s smokey inception. What a great way to bring laughter and community into what can be an intense environment. 🙌👏👌I’m sure it won’t be long before we hear about the first tube chat initiated wedding. 😝
