✨The Poke feature is not yet accessible in our Android app. That just means you’ll need to head over to our website. You can do this in the Elfster app by tapping the three bars in the upper left-hand corner. Then tap “Go to Website”. Login to the website and you’re there. Simple as that! 💫



✨You can also send the person you drew a Secret Q&A  or an anonymous message to learn more about the things they love. ✨
