Neighbourly, a mobile application developed by Google that was launched in India last year has received a new update which brings four new ways to connect with your neighbours. Neighbourly is an app which lets you ask questions and get expert local answers within the app. It connects local communities to help them learn and share about everything happening nearby.
With the latest update of Neighbourly, people can now:
- Post Photos – Snap a photo of the meal you enjoyed at a newly-opened restaurant.
- Create Events – Invite new neighbours to watch an upcoming cricket match.
- Create Polls – Get quick input on the best local vegetarian restaurant.
- Share Tips – Update neighbours on hazards and repairs happening on the roads.
These features will make it even easier to share with and learn from your neighbours. You can also show off how well you know your neighbourhood by solving a Neighbourhood Challenge — puzzles that will appear from time-to-time in the app. Your neighbours will then vote on your contribution. The Neighbourly app is available on the Google Play Store for all smartphones running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher. If you already have Neighbourly, you’ll see these new features starting today.
According to one samaritan, “I love to check out my mohalla in Indore and help people there with my local knowledge, while I get help from my new neighbours in Bangalore.”
