Glide Brings Live Video Messaging to Windows Phone
Popular video messenger now available to Windows Phone’s 100 million global users
PALO ALTO, Calif., February 10, 2016 – Glide, the lightning-fast video messaging app, is bringing its unique communication platform to Windows Phone today. In response to demand for Glide from many of the roughly 100 million Windows Phone users worldwide, Windows 10 and Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone users can now use Glide to communicate. Glide has seen tens of millions of downloads and billions of messages sent on Android and iOS devices worldwide. In addition, last week Glide debuted live video messaging for Android Wear smartwatches.
“We are satisfying the demand of Windows Phone users around the world by helping them stay in closer contact with their loved ones in a way that mimics real-life interactions,” said Ari Roisman, Glide CEO. “Windows Phone users worldwide recognized the potential of Glide for more thoughtful, personal communication and now we’re excited to make it available to them.”
Since first debuting in spring 2013, Glide has dramatically improved how millions of users worldwide communicate face-to-face with their loved ones, regardless of time or place, by combining the convenience of texting with the power and personality of live video messaging. Unlike video calling platforms, Glide messages can be viewed live or later — whenever it’s most convenient for the recipient. Glide messages ‘ping-pong’ back-and-forth quickly, creating a fun and natural visual conversation that can include videos, photos and text.
All conversations are stored for free on Glide’s secure private cloud, so they can be experienced anytime, viewed an unlimited number of times, and take up no space on users’ devices.
Glide is a free, highly-rated messaging app for iOS, Android and Windows Phone used by millions of people across the world. Glide leverages the power and spontaneity of in-the-moment video to capture the essence of authentic communication and add depth, humor and heart to relationships that matter. Because Glide is asynchronous in nature, it collapses time and distance, enabling ongoing conversations to continue with ease.
Glide has raised $30 million in financing and is a free app for Android, Android Wear, iOS, Apple Watch and Windows Phone. Glide has seen tens of millions of downloads and billions of messages sent since its debut in spring 2013. For more information, visit http://glide.me.
