Dear ARKH Community,
We know it’s been a while since you last heard from us.
It’s been a busy year, and our team has been hard at work preparing for an incredible launch of the ARKH platform (and a lot more behind the scenes)!
Our current and ongoing goal is to improve and develop the best AR experience possible. We’ve brought more incredible members to the ARKH team, and together we have been building a more robust AR ecosystem and a platform for everyone to enjoy together. We hope you love what we’ve built as much as we do, and we cannot wait to see how people use this platform to experience, discover, share, and create so many amazing memories together.
As you know, late last year we opened up sign-ups for the ARKH ‘Beta’ launch...
Now we are very proud to announce that we will begin sending out ARKH Private Beta invites TODAY to one hundred people who have signed up, and will then begin to slowly roll out invites to everyone else who is signed up over the coming weeks.
What does this mean for you?
If you were one of the thousands of people that signed up for our Private Beta, you will be hearing from us soon. This launch is our chance to hear from you directly, so do please not hold back. The Private Beta build has intentionally limited features available to users with access, and we will begin to introduce our full feature set (as well as the web platform) once our initial testing phase / rollout has completed. Again, we want feedback from every one of you, so don’t shy away from joining our discord or contacting us at [email protected].
What if I didn’t sign up?
Thousands have signed up for the private beta, and if you haven’t yet, it’s not too late for you! Make sure you sign up for the beta list by clicking here. We expect to have the ARKH Beta App publicly available on most app stores within the next week, but you will still have to be signed-up and approved to join the private beta before you will be able to login to the app. We can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on the app, and we are beyond excited to see what amazing things are created as we begin to send invites to you.
On May 17th, we posted a press release on the ARKH website detailing a fantastic acquisition of hardware, software, certain intellectual property, and technical assistance from the UK-based augmented reality startup, Litho. As we mentioned, we see this as a huge step forward for Augmented Reality.

If you’ve kept up with us, you know that our future doesn’t just end with the Social AR Platform -- After we finish conducting this Private Beta phase, we plan to begin offering the full open beta this Summer. Furthermore, we’ll begin shipping out ARKH’s AR controllers coinciding with this launch to users worldwide. We have many incredible updates on our road map that we believe will highlight the power of AR on a global scale (literally), and we will continue to improve our platform and begin to roll out our more novel AR Hardware as we progress throughout the year.
TL;DR by ARKH’s Founder
“It’s been a long time coming. For the last year we have been building something that we hope you will love as much as we do, and we’re all beyond happy to announce that the private beta is finally here! Our team worked very hard on this. It is not perfect (yet). So, please let us know how to make it better. Join the discord, email us, or contact us on socials!
This (Private Beta launch) is the social AR platform, and soon we will introduce much more. This Summer, we want to launch the open beta after hearing your feedback, and the AR controllers will be shipping out soon after.
Long time coming, we’re very happy you’re here!” – Landon Nickerson
