FamilyChannel™: Keep Your Family Safe and in Sync!

Note: this is part 3 of 4 articles sharing the most helpful uses of Life360’s Family Safety App on iPhone or Android!

Last week we talked about how our lives can sometimes be overwhelming. Especially when we try desperately to keep everyone in the family on the same page. We’ll as I shared in part 1 & part 2 “there’s an app for that!” It’s called Life360 and its free!

We are excited to share that we are now a part of over 13 million people’s lives—the best part is our family safety app will always be FREE!

There are several different ways families around the country are using Life360. You can read some of their stories here!

What can Life360 do for you?

So far we’ve covered the Family LocatingCheck In & Panic Alert features. But what about when you need to say more than just “I’m Safe!” Or “HELP!” There’s a feature for that too:

FamilyChannel –When coordinating between the whole family gets to be too much—texting the kids, then calling the spouse to repeat the same thing, waiting for answers, “Did he see my message?!” “Is everyone on the same page?!”—The Family Channel is our solution for you.

FamilyChannel is a private secure group chat for the family. Everyone is in on one chat feed and can all be on the go while staying on the same page. It even works cross-platform for those families whose members use both iPhones and Android devices. For those family members who don’t yet have smartphones, you can stay in the loop by using text or email to join the chat too! It’s simple and easy for everyone to use!

Quick Note: The blue button at the top of the map screen also allows you to send a quick message without entering the full chat. You can save up to three custom responses that you use regularly or send a short message with just a tap!

Come back next week to learn about seeing Local Threats & Emergency Services on the app! Always know what threats are around and where you can get help with the Life360 app.

If you haven’t tried it out, you can get the latest version of Life360 for free on iPhone or Android!
