Google 'Neighbourly' is a new app that aims to put an ultra-local spin on the social network format. With the app, users are able to crowdsource questions and have top answers come back from the people within their very own community. For instance, a user may type or use their voice to inquire about the neighborhood's best mechanics or clothing repair services.
As the app is a locally focused social network, users are able to follow questions from other people and get notified about updates from other users who provide helpful answers and tips on the platform. Neighbourly addresses privacy by allowing its users to share their questions without revealing personal details or contact information.
The beta Android-only app has exclusively been launched in Mumbai, India, with availability in both Indian and English.
