what3words is a global grid of 57 trillion 3mx3m squares.
Each square has a 3 word address that can be communicated quickly, easily and with no ambiguity.
And you can do it all in your own language (go to the settings menu to change the 3 word language).
Everyone and everywhere now has an address.
Explore the map, zoom in to see the grid, and tap the wordbar to share a 3 word location with your friends.
Or keep it simple and use the compass.
You can use the what3words app to find, share and get directions to any 3 words location.
what3words is universal.
You can email or SMS a 3 word address or say it over the phone. You can write it down or just remember it.
It's the simplest way to communicate location.
We hope you enjoy what3words!
