How do I chat with other players?



There are a few different ways you can chat with other player:

Chat Benches

These can be found around the world, and with the use of a single Candle allows you and one other player to chat freely with one another while you are both sitting on the bench.

Tables

These can be placed into the world by players, allowing for up to six players to chat simultaneously while seated.

Friendship Level Reward

Perhaps the most common way to chat with other players is unlocking the chat feature with them. You do this by giving them Candles to increase your friendship level with them. Once you have reached a certain level of friendship, you will be able to chat with them any time you are together.

Why do I only see dots when other players chat?



If you only see dots when another player is chatting, it likely means you have not unlocked the chat feature with that player. You or they will have to offer each other Candles to increase your Friendship level with each other, and eventually you can unlock chat.

How do I hold another player's hand?



To hold hands with another player, tap on the triangle above their character's head to open the social menu:

  • If you want to lead them, by offering your own hand, select the handholding icon in the menu that appears.
  • If you want to hold their hand, allowing them to take the lead, you should tap the icon that appears above their head.

If at any point you want to stop holding hands you can:

  • Swipe hard left or right of your character, or
  • Tap the handholding button again to break the hold.

How can I warp directly to a friend?



If you would like to warp directly to a friend, you must:

  • Tap the Cog icon in the top-right of the screen.
  • Then tap the Portal icon to teleport Home.
  • In Home you will find the friend Constellation.
  • Tap on the name of the player you wish to warp to.

Tap on the warp to friend icon in the friendship menu, that looks like two characters floating at one another, to warp directly to them.

How can I invite my friend if the link does not work?



If the link you send to your friend is not working, try sending it to them using iMessage.

If this still does not work, have them copy/paste the link directly into Safari, Chrome, or any browser of their choice on the device they wish to play on. There they can tap Open to accept the invite.

The apps known to occasionally have this issue are: FaceBook, FaceBook Chat, and WeChat.

How do I mute a player?



If you no longer want to see another player's chat, follow these steps:

  • Tap on the player's character to select them either in person or in Home.
  • In the friendship menu, scroll to find the chat settings.
  • Tap on the chat bubble icon to mute or unmute that player's chat.

Doing this will only prevent you from seeing their chat, but they can continue to see yours.

You can undo this setting by repeating the steps above.

How do I block a player?



If you no longer want to interact with another player, follow these steps:

  • Tap on the player's character to select them either in person or in Home.
  • In the friendship menu, scroll to find the block option.
  • Tap on the block-player icon to block them.

There is currently no way to undo this if you cannot find your friend.

Why can't I find, interact with, or send things to certain friends?



If you cannot find, interact with, or send things to certain friends it may be because one of you has blocked the other. It is not uncommon for this to happen accidentally, and there is currently no way to undo this by yourself.
