The stars have aligned.
Astrology has become popular with Gen Z and millennials over the last few years, and Co-Star has benefitted from this rise, and the 11-person company managed to raise $US5 million in funding from VC firms including the prominent Maveron and Aspect Ventures.
By providing information about when they were born, Co-Star users can get a daily horoscope, plus a birth chart that they can use to see their compatibility with friends. The company claims that it has “facilitated intimacy in the desert of our social relations.”
Android users were apparently eager to be able to participate in the Internet’s astrology fascination. In its announcement, Co-Star said that over 120,000 people were on the waitlist for an Android app. Some of them expressed their excitement about the new availability on Twitter.
Co-Star finally came out on Android so catch me living my life ruled by an app based on how the stars influence your being which is definitely scientific…
