Add someone to the loop

Jibo’s Loop is the 16 people he recognizes by face & voice-- it’s the people who are most special to him.

To invite someone to the Loop:

Follow these steps for iOS:

  1. Tap the Loop icon on the bottom menu bar of the app.
  2. Tap the Invite a new Loop member option.
  3. Enter the Loop member's First Name, Last Name, Birthday, and Gender, then tap Next. Birthday is a required field to make sure the loop member is at least 13 for COPPA Compliancy.
  4. If the person has a nickname they prefer to go by, enter their Preferred Name and tap Next. If not, tap Skip for Now.
  5. If you entered the birthday of a child under 13, a prompt will pop up notifying you that the child must receive their parent or guardian's permission before joining the Loop. Tap Ok. See Add a child to the loop for more info. 
  6. If the new loop member is an adult, tap Yes, invite (them) by email to invite them to view Jibo's gallery (and to install the app). To skip this option, tap No, maybe later. Loop members do not need the app to use Jibo-- only to see the gallery in their app.
