A new user guide to help you connect with your future world. Learn what Kapsule is and how it works.

What is Kapsule?

Kapsule (short for time capsule) is a future messaging app that allows users to share video messages with anyone in the future. Video messages (called Kapsules) are uploaded and preserved securely in the cloud and delivered to their recipients months, years, or even decades in the future.

Kapsule is the first app designed to outlive its creators with a vision to: Connect the world: past, present, and future.

Who is Kapsule for?

Kapsule is for everyone - even for people who don’t exist yet. 🤔  (think about it). The app is available to Android and iOS users around the world.

What kind of Kapsules can I send?

Anything you want. Just be sure to follow our community guidelines. (No nudity, violence, or blatant hate speech) Check out What's Trending to get some ideas.

4 different ways to create a Kapsule.

How does Kapsule work? 

  • Download the app
  • Create an account
  • Record a video
  • Personalize and schedule a Kapsule
  • Wait… (this is the hard part)
  • Your Kapsule gets delivered - creating a meaningful experience for someone in the future 

Does my recipient need the app to receive my Kapsule?

No. Anyone with an email address can receive a Kapsule.

How and when do people get notified?

Recipients get notified with an email saying that "someone" has sent them a Kapsule - but not who or when they will receive it.

Recipients get notified immediately once you schedule a Kapsule to them.
We don't say who sent it to them or when they'll receive it.

When it's time to deliver your Kapsule, your recipient will receive an email with a link for them to watch your Kapsule.

Your recipient can enjoy your Kapsule even if they haven't downloaded the app.

However, anyone who downloads and installs the mobile app will have control over how and when they'd like to be notified.

Be in control over how and when you get notified.

Even if you're having a bad day, it's nice to know that someone is thinking about you in the future.

Push notifications that make someone's day.

How is Kapsule different from other social media companies/apps?

Kapsule is different from other social apps in 4 major ways.

1. Privacy & Security

Kapsule puts user privacy and security at the heart of everything we do. No usernames or passwords: Kapsule only accepts user signups through trust authentication providers.

Which means no passwords to remember, reset, or be compromised. This makes it a little more difficult for bots to join and ruin the app for the rest of us.

Passwordless authentication from a provider you trust.

2. No ads or selling of user data

We will never serve ads or sell your data. That would diminish the experience and erode your trust in us.

No ads or monetization of user data.

3. No algorithms or manipulated feeds

There are no algorithms or feeds to manipulate, influence, or trigger users. Just you and who you want to invite into your "future world".

Be in control over who you bring into your "Future World".

4. No filters or fakery

Unlike other apps, Kapsule doesn’t use filters, stickers, or captions on your videos. Those only distract and date poorly over time. Kapture the true you and deliver it to someone in the future. It's that simple.
