Mutu Monthly Wrap - Mar 2021
Happy belated Easter from the Mutu team. We hope you all had an amazing long weekend with family and friends! Here's what we got up to in March, and what we're planning in April:
Welcome to our Aussie mates!
With the government's announcement this week, we're looking forward to the bubble opening and welcoming all our mates from across the ditch back to NZ! Mutu offers travellers a way to do their favourite things (or try new things!) while travelling, without having to lug around all their gear or buy new gear. If you've got any Aussie friends or family heading over, don't forget to tell them about Mutu so that they can sort their gear via the app when they head on over to NZ!
App release 1.2.0
In March we released version 1.2.0 of the Mutu app! You can now ask questions and message the owner of an item before renting on Mutu! This means you'll be equipped with all the information you need before renting or lending on Mutu! All questions are public, so you can also view everyone else's questions. Another awesome feature that has been added in this release is the ability to sign up and log in to Mutu via Google, Facebook and Apple.
"Rent anything" Facebook group
We have a brand new private Facebook group exclusively for the Mutu community. Join us and share your listings or request an item to be loaded to Mutu.
Thanks as always for joining us on our journey to share more and reduce waste in NZ!
Toby and the Mutu team.
