We’re excited to say that we’ve taken another important step towards our mission: to be the messaging app of choice for professionals around the world.
You can now use Guild as an individual for your personal contacts (for free). It is still invite-based to keep the experience private, permission-based and high quality but you can invite your contacts to connect with you on Guild so you can direct message each other. You can also create personal groups with your contacts.
Guild can now replace WhatsApp for interpersonal communication between individuals as well as for professional groups, networks and communities.
Here’s how to start communicating with your personal contacts on Guild:
1. Update / Get the App
If you've already got the app then make sure you've updated to the most recent version. If not, you can get the app from the app stores:
You can also join online and download the app later.
2. Go to the new Contacts section
3. Invite your contacts by invite link or email
4. Search contacts by name, job title, organisation
5. Direct message and remove contacts
6. Create private groups and invite your contacts
Free vs. Business/Enterprise versions
Guild is free for personal use and for businesses who only need basic features. Our pricing and plans page gives details of the Business and Enterprise versions which include custom-branding, analytics, admin, support, access to conversation and user data etc.
