Are you trying to make plans with your friends this weekend, but can’t seem to decide on a place to meet up? There’s a new app called Begroupd that wants to help solve all of your problems when it comes to organizing plans with your friends and family members, and it’s backed by none other than Khloe Kardashian.

Although the original idea came from Lindsey Cummins, Khloe Kardashian has been heavily involved in its development.

Lindsey Cummins told Business Insider she came up with the idea after she was having a hard time planning a simple night out with friends.

“My friends are really talkative people, so there’s a lot of clutter and side conversations going on, and needing to scroll through a million messages just get answers was nearly impossible,” Cummins explained. “So I just wanted to create a single place where you could get all that detailed information without needing to open up a bunch of different apps.”

In addition to all the basic messaging functions you’d expect from WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, Begroupd’s unique feature lets you send a bunch of different options to your friends, and then asks them to vote for their favorite idea. Begroupd tallies all of your friends’ responses, so you can easily see how many votes each option has received. That way, you don’t have to track all of your friends’ answers to figure out the most popular option.

You can also pose yes or no questions, ask for RSVPs to events, request ratings on a scale from 1 to 5, and so on. While most of these polling options are geared toward events, you could also use the ratings and yes/no features to make snap decisions. For example, you could send a picture of a new pair of shoes you’re trying on to all your friends and ask them to rate them, or snap a pic of a few outfits and ask your friends to help you choose for one for a special occasion.

All your friends’ responses are organized neatly into folders: RSVPs, Yes/No, Ratings, etc. You can also see conversation threads instead of just the polls. The organized nature of the app seems to have appealed greatly to Kardashian.

“Everyone knows that feeling of being in a group chat with multiple conversations all over the place,” Kardashian said in a statement. “What I loved about Begroupd is that it sorts through the chaos and saves time by streamlining the decision making process.”

Begroupd is the second mobile app made with the help of a Kardashian. It was just last year that Glu Mobile worked with Kim Kardashian to launch Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game, which was downloaded more than 28 million times.

You can download Begroupd from the App Store here.

Nothing Phone 2: news, release date and price rumors, and more
Nothing Phone 1 with Glyph lights active.

The Nothing Phone 1 made its debut in July 2022, and it had a reasonable amount of hype behind it due to the involvement of Carl Pei, a co-founder of OnePlus. It was a quirky phone due to the unique light show on the back that makes it stand out from the competition, but on the software front, it’s very similar to other Android phones out there. It received mixed reviews, though the consensus leaned more on the positive side.

This year, we’re expecting the Nothing Phone 2, as confirmed by Pei in January during MWC 2023. Here’s everything we know so far about the Nothing Phone 2!

Artificial intelligence (AI) is huge news right now, thanks to chatbots like ChatGPT -- but did you know you can already access an AI on your Android phone? Google Assistant is Google's AI-powered voice assistant, and it's available on Android, iOS, and a large number of smart devices (like Google's Nest speakers). While not as capable as ChatGPT (yet), Google Assistant can handle an impressive number of tasks — including pausing and resuming songs and videos, making tasks and reminders, and in some cases, even taking and screening phone calls for you.

That may seem like a lot, but Google Assistant is relatively simple to use. If you've never used a voice assistant before, we've got this guide to help you get to grips with it and take your first steps.
