A phone designed for 6 billion people should be inspired by at least a few thousand.


Google is inviting people across the globe to become Ara Scouts. Over the next 6 - 12 months, we'll be doing research to shape the direction of Project Ara. You can help by collaborating with us on special missions.

Are you ready?
Become an Ara Scout.

If together we can make Project Ara a success, a hundred of the most active scouts will receive an early release version at no cost.

Know someone we should invite? Send them our way.

We're especially interested in people in the remote corners of the globe who don't have a smartphone (or a phone at all). Can you be their voice?

    How it Works

  1. After you sign up, we'll email you about once a month with opportunities to share photos, ideas and commentary about topics relating to Project Ara. You'll get the first email within a couple of days!
  2. If you have an Android or iPhone, each opportunity will arrive as a "mission" for you to complete using the free dscout app on your phone. If you don't have an Android or iPhone, stay tuned!
  3. The dscout app will guide you through sharing your photos, ideas and commentary with us. We can't wait to see what you have to say!

Organizations use dscout to engage people in improving their existing experiences and inventing new ones.
