How to Use Landing Notifications

For Landing Notifications to work automatically, each Circle member must have ‘Flight Detection’ turned on, and the user in flight must have ‘Location Sharing’ permissions turned on.

Yes, it’s that simple! With the settings above, a plane emoji will appear on the map throughout a Circle member’s journey when they’re on the airport runway and while in flight.

Once the Circle member has landed at an airport, their Circle will receive the notification that they have successfully landed at their destination.

And yes – this feature works in Airplane Mode.
