Down To Chill is a trendy place to hang out with friends who share your interests. Hanging out with friends is now easy, convenient, and fun.
To get started with Down to Chill you’ll need to create an account by logging in with your Facebook account. What this will do is pull in all of your profile information and allow you to connect with your Facebook friends that are on Down to Chill. There aren’t any other profile options from there, whatever your profile picture and name is on Facebook is what it’s going to be on Down to Chill. The only option that you’ll have as far as customizing your profile will be the custom hashtag that you can add to your profile, and we’ll get into hashtags and how they work below.
To see who’s available in your area to chill you’ll want to come into the Home tab. Here you’ll tap on the Down to Chill button and your profile will go into Online mode. Down to Chill will then use your current location to find others around you that are ready to chill as well. Once a profile card is show to you in the Home feed you can either Chill with that person, which will send them a request and open a chat with them, or Next them, which will discard that profile card and show you the next available person. The Home feed is where you are going to find your Facebook friends as well as people who are close by.
The Feed tab is where the hashtags are going to come into play. There will be two sections to the Feed tab, your Current Location and Following. The current location will show the city name in the top left of the screen. Here you will see updates and comments from people who have used your cities hashtag to leave a post. For example, we are located in Modesto and our cities hashtag is #Modesto, so whenever someone posts to that hashtag they will show up in my cities news feed. From there I can comment and like other people’s postings. The Following tab will allow you to search for specific hashtags to follow and you’ll see posts for the hashtags that you follow. The custom hashtag that you set for your profile will automatically be followed in this section.
The last tab in Down to Chill is the Chat. This is where you’ll be able to chat back and forth with the people who you have connected with by tapping on Chill from the Home feed. You’ll see all of your chat history with everyone you’ve connected with as well as any hashtags that you’ve posted to. Tapping on a chat will bring you into it where you can continue to reply to that person, where you can send text or photos. If you’d ever like to leave a chat tap the three dots in the chat history and you’ll have to unmatch yourself from them and you’ll leave the chat. But the main purpose of the chat tab is for you to set up a time and place to go chill with the person that you matched with.
It’s time to start chilling with all of your friends. Don’t be a homebody, get out and do something with Down to Chill!
