HMU: RealChat is here!

1st June 2023

To our many incredible users who’ve been asking for a way to chat with your friends on BeReal…⚠️ we’re on it ⚠️. 

Today we are excited to announce RealChat 📣. Now, our users have a space to privately and authentically share and react to each other’s BeReal, share a unique BeReal to stay connected with their close friends🫂, or just have a conversation and react using a RealMoji. 

As always, we’re starting things off with a test 📝. From there we’ll shake things up and begin challenging the norms of communication – the BeReal way⚠️.  

Here’s how it works (for now 👀):

Safety and privacy is important to us and we’ll always communicate the decisions we make around these topics 🗣️. When messaging services are encrypted they can be used by bad actors trying to exploit or share things that are not positive or maybe even illegal. With that in mind, we made the decision to not encrypt RealChat so we can better preserve the safety and experience of users on BeReal ✅.

We’ll test RealChat in some countries and we’ll roll out gradually from there! What we’re most looking forward to is hearing from you, our authentic community 🫂. We’d love to hear what you think about RealChat and any other updates we’re making. You can always message us at [email protected] or through the app: 

  1. Go to your profile.
  2. Tap the three-dot menu in the top right. 
  3. Tap “Help” and then “Contact us”.

Keep it Real,
BeReal Crew
