Honk is attempting to corner those weary of Facebook’s monopoly on mobile communication, offering real-time texting more akin to Snapchat than Messenger.
Ever sent a friend or potential love interest a risky message and regretted it? Perhaps a meme on the group chat that went down like a lead balloon? We’ve all been there.
A new mobile app called Honk is hoping to offer Gen Zers a happy medium between traditional texting services and the real-time, disappearing nature of Snapchat with its instantaneous messaging gimmick that allows users to communicate without anything being saved. The days of cringing over your unfortunate messages are over.
Users are notified when a friend is on the app and wanting your attention, and there’s even a ‘honk’ feature that gets the attention of the recipient via a flood of emojis and notifications.
