4 Things to Try in the Latest Likewise Groups Update

Connect with your favorite things in a whole new way

With Likewise Groups, we’re taking social recommendations to the next level with interest-based groups to help you find more of what you love. Here are just a few things you can try now in the app.

1. Connect through Groups

Take part in a wide array of Groups at launch and discover positive communities of users who share your entertainment interests. Groups allow you to meet like-minded fans, find hidden gem recommendations, discuss relevant topics, ask for suggestions, and share your suggestions with others. 

Each Group, except for the five streaming service lounges, will be hosted by a Likewise power user with expertise in that specific genre. Hosts will share their recommendations, insights, and personality with the community. 

Curious what Groups are available? Check out the list below.

2. Join a Discussion

Join and create conversations about your favorite topics and hear from other members with text-based Group Discussions. Whereas ‘Asks’ are focused entirely on finding a new recommendation, Discussions enable free-flowing conversations around the existing content you love.

3. Explore the Community Tab

Groups aren’t the only new thing in the Likewise app. Check back on the revamped Community tab to find all your Asks, Discussions, and social feed in one place. 

4. Try the new Explore Tab

The pre-existing ‘Find Now’ and ‘Discover’ tabs are now merged under the ‘Explore’ tab. Find recommendations on the fly using the ‘Explore’ filtered search options or browse some of Likewise’s curated lists of choice content.

5. Bonus: Participate in Live Audio Events (Soon)

Check back in a few weeks for live audio chat events! Debate fan theories, hear from debut authors and guest influencers, join a book club, and much more.
