Social network Path has announced a significant update to its iOS app, bringing new features such as private sharing to specific contacts, a new “inner circle” grouping feature for existing contacts on the service, and a new premium membership that allows for unlimited use of exclusive filters and characters. The company has also announced a global partnership with mobile carrier Deutsche Telekom, bringing its German customers a free year of Path’s premium membership.
Our team is proud to announce Path 3.2 and with it, Private Sharing, Inner Circle, and Premium. A lot of thought and iteration went in to these features, during which we constantly asked ourselves—will this help bring you and your friends and family closer together? Will this give you more control over what you share, and who you choose to share with? Will this encourage you to be yourself, and be more open with those who matter most?
The last major update to the app came in March and brought entry-level private messaging and a shop for its stickers and characters to use in messages. Path can be downloaded from the App Store for free, although the update has yet to go live. [Direct Link]
