You can now see when your friends are sleeping, and when they've woken-up so no more worrying about disturbing precious beauty sleep 😴! You'll know a friend is sleeping when the moon icon is displayed 🌜, and their avatar is dark blue.
Tapping the sleep information bar gives you the option to receive a notification when they wake-up 🛌! It's a one-time notification, so you won't receive it every time your friend wakes-up. That would just be weird!
If we think your friend is sleeping, but we're not entirely sure 🤷♂️ their avatar will be light blue, the moon icon will not be displayed.
So, how does the magic work 🎉? Most mobile phones have various sensors, which we can use to detect when you’re active or asleep. Of course, there is a lot more to it, but that’s the general idea💡. Don't worry, we don't access any additional data, including health data, for this feature. Due to this, we may show a friend is sleeping when they're not. The goal of this feature is to inform users and make it easier to know when you can and can’t disturb someone.
Don't feel like sharing your sleep status with your friends? We completely understand, and we always want our users to feel in control of their data. You can decide to hide it by enabling Ghost mode 👻. Don't forget; this will also hide your live location.
