The company’s website provides some additional hints on what we can expect. “Let’s face it: We all miss going out. And while our communities have plenty of work ahead to rebound from 2020, we believe 2021 will be a year like no other to rediscover your city,” Gowalla says. “Gowalla is a fun and adventurous way to celebrate the places that bring us together with our friends.” Gowalla also makes a point of mentioning in a FAQ that check-ins won’t be a major part of the experience.

Whatever the new Gowalla turns outs to be, you can sign up to join a waitlist to try the app once it’s available in your city. There’s also the option to pay $49 to join the company’s Street Team, which comes with perks like priority beta access. Provided the pandemic cooperates, Williams told TechCrunch the plan is start rolling out the Gowalla beta in the first half of 2021.
