A Design Sprint for Connecting
The Team's Solution: Circles

Let’s face it, modern technology can be hectic, even overwhelming. With so many touch-points, from phones to tablets to desktops, from smart TVs to connected cars, it all gets to be a bit much. Even if you’re good at managing your devices, the information on your preferred device can feel fragmented. Who has time to manage all their information, much less manage communications that don’t feel slapdash? The answer is Circles.

Circles uses your contacts to build a seamless feed of what matters most. It organizes your favorite people and most recent interactions to supply you with relevant information at the tap of a button. Taking advantage of Android’s ability to filter data from different apps, Circles gathers highlights from your life so you see the things that matter, rather than scrolling through the rubbish heap.

The secret to Circle’s capabilities is that it aggregates many channels of content from the sources that matter to you into one place. It’s contextual, so it gets to know your preferences, and picks up on what’s hot and what’s not. Finally, it allows journaling so your feed is interactive so you can share what’s top-of- mind.

Circles helps you get control of your digital life by bringing together the content you care about, and cutting out the cacophony of static and noise, so you can be present for what matters.
