How Text Updates Differ from Mobile App Updates?

You might be wondering, "Why should I opt-in for text updates when I already have the Y's mobile app?" It's a great question, and we have a straightforward answer.

Our mobile app is fantastic for accessing a wide range of Y-related information, from class schedules to facility hours. However, text updates serve a unique purpose – they provide you with immediate notifications about time-sensitive news and announcements. Here are a few examples of what you can expect:

  • Emergency Closures: In the event of unexpected closures due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, you'll receive instant alerts on your phone.
  • Last-Minute Program Changes: If a class or program you've registered for experiences a sudden schedule change, you'll be among the first to know.
  • Exclusive Offers: Get access to special promotions, discounts, and limited-time offers that are sent directly to your mobile device.

While our mobile app remains your go-to resource for browsing and planning, text updates are all about keeping you informed and up-to-date in real-time. It's the perfect complement to your Y experience!
