How do I invite or add friends or family to Opal

There are several ways to be social with Opal! Here's how.

Invite friends and family to receive rewards

If your friends and family could benefit from better focus, invite them to use Opal today and you'll receive rewards!Β If you have five friends create accounts using your referral, you will receive one year of Opal Pro for free. Here is how to invite them from the Opal app:

  • Go to your Opal "Settings" (accessible from the top right corner of your "Profile" tab)
  • Scroll down and click "Share Opal"
  • Send the link to your friends via your preferred messaging app
Please note that the link your friends receive will automatically grant them one free month of Opal Pro. For the share to be successful and for you to receive a referral for the invite, they must tap "Allow Paste" from Safari. If you do not see your referral reflected in your account, please update the app here before contacting our Support team.

Create a Social Session

In addition to inviting new friends and family to use Opal, you can turn any Focus Session into a "Social Session" by inviting friends and family to participate. Just follow the instructions here.
