Description

Geneva is a group communication app designed for organized, ongoing conversations with all your favorite people. Join or create a "home" for your group and set up a mix of chat, forum, audio, video, and broadcast rooms for different topics.

Whether you're aimlessly hanging with best friends, keeping your club members on the same page, or sharing opinions with peers across the country — there’s a place for everyone here.


Here are a few of the highlights:

HOMES & ROOMS
Set up "homes" for your groups, then create "rooms" inside them for different topics or sub-groups. Rooms can be open or secret, and because everyone can adjust their notification settings for each one, people can tune into the conversations they care about and tune out the rest. There are 5 different kinds of rooms you can use...

CHAT ROOMS
Full-featured chat rooms with @ mentions, threaded replies, emoji reactions, GIFs, attachments, polls, events, pins, typing indicators, and more...

FORUM ROOMS
These post-style rooms are more organized than chat rooms, making them great for announcements and deeper discussion. Create long-form posts with rich formatting, comment and react, and sort and filter the room by most recent, most popular, and more...

AUDIO ROOMS
If you'd rather talk than type and read, you can create an audio room in your home and jump in with a tap whenever the mood strikes. Think of it like a big group phone call, but way easier.

VIDEO ROOMS
Hop in a video room and hang out with up to 16 people at once. With screensharing built in, these are great for small events and more casual get-togethers.

BROADCAST ROOMS
Go live on video with up to 9 people on stage and thousands of viewers to call on-air. Use these for things like chapter meetings, casual panels, DIY tutorials, live-reacts, and more...

DMs
Because sometimes you just want to start a private side convo.

EVENTS CALENDAR
With event invites and a centralized calendar, it's easy to share info, gather RSVPs, and get reminders to hop on. Events can take place right in your Geneva home, IRL, or anywhere else online.

GATES
Use gates to control access to your Geneva home. Our built-in new member questionnaire helps you gather info about potential members and decide if they're a good fit — no need to use a separate survey tool. Age, nickname, entry fee, and more gates coming soon.

ROLES & PERMISSIONS
Set up roles to control who can and can't do things like invite other people, create rooms, moderate messages, and more...

NO ADS & NO SELLING YOUR DATA
Ever. Instead, we're building a bunch of exciting features that'll make it really easy for people on Geneva to transact with one another, and when that happens, we'll keep 5% (more info on this coming soon).

ACTUAL ACCOUNTABILITY
Because everyone signs up with a phone number, not an email address, blocks and bans are easier to enforce so there’s less room for trolling and abuse (but don't worry, we won't share or display your phone number anywhere). We also give you the ability to set your home's rules and tools to help you enforce them.

DESIGNED FOR EVERYONE
Geneva is great for all kinds of social groups: friends & families, school clubs, sports teams, movements, fraternities and sororities, creators & fans, coaches & students, professional networks, brand communities, interest groups, and more...


And this is just the beginning:

We're working together to build something that's fun, safe and useful, and we'll be adding new features all the time. If you have suggestions, questions, or feedback, drop us a note at hi@geneva.com.


Made with love in New York City and beyond.

4 for potential

I love the app first and foremost, but it needs a little work, mostly regarding bugs.

I’d suggest a few key things:

Primarily: the chats often glitch on IOS where you have to close and reopen the app to see what you’ve sent or new chats. Very frustrating

Secondarily: the side panel is a bit visually over stimulating. I preferred the visual conciseness of slack, perhaps you make it so that you have to swipe twice to see the main menu, which would give more room for the channel/side panel, does that make sense?

Thirdly: this is small, but the capacity to change the color scheme on individuals phones, I’d like the freedom to choose which colors I see, as the color that the admin chooses might be distracting or visually displeasing.

Lastly: the capacity to add new emojis such as in Slack, as well as, very importantly, a reactions tab, reactions don’t show up in activity like they do on slack. Very helpful, as they can communicate a lot without needing to actually reply/clutter threads, and without a place to See all the new reactions to my comments, I might miss important ones

Overall, I appreciate this app and look forward to its further development

:)

Developer Response ,

Hey Hunterist - thank you! We appreciate you too 🙌 As a small team with a new app, stuff like this is super helpful.

re: the glitch you mentioned, the team is working on that as we speak and it should be resolved in our next update! Thanks for your patience on this one.

We're planning to add 'custom emojis' later this year for sure, and good feedback on the other pieces too - definitely all things we'll consider!

Exactly what I needed

I was looking to build some sort of support group and I saw an ad for this app. So far it has been exactly what I wanted and more! We have a great private forum that can be customized to our groups needs. Thank you so much for creating this app! I have been able to connect with people from all over the world with similar experiences. My only request would be for some way for groups to be discoverable if you want them to. Like maybe a section where you can look at groups accepting new members and request to join.

Hey NotArat - we just introduced a new 'home discovery' experience on the iPhone app. It's an initial experiment that'll grow over time, but I thought you might want to check it out! - Sam

great group chat app!

Have been using this for a group that I organize and it’s been very nice — a good alternative to slack I think and feels less cluttered and confusing with a lot of novel and useful tools. Cool that you can use on the desktop as well as on your phone. New features still being added, which is exciting.
