Glide Upgrades Live Video Messaging App for Windows 10 Mobile
Lightning-fast Video Messaging App Now Fully Integrated into Windows 10
PALO ALTO, Calif., March 24, 2016 – Glide, on the heels of its recent launch for Windows Phone, today announced a newly upgraded version of the Glide video messenger specifically designed for Windows 10. Windows Phone users have been anticipating the arrival of this unique video communication platform, now fully leveraging Windows 10 Mobile capabilities and enhanced user experience.
“I am impressed by Microsoft’s new leadership and strategic initiatives, and am happy to offer the growing Glide community a seamless Windows 10 experience.” said Ari Roisman, Glide CEO. “By extending our unique video messaging platform in recent months to Windows Phone, Android Wear and Apple Watch, we are excited to see Glide help millions more people communicate with greater ease and expression.”
“The introduction of Glide to the Windows platform with the native Windows 10 offering last month has been a significant milestone in our collaboration with Glide as a trusted partner”, said Ruthy Kaidar, Developer Experience and Evangelism Lead at Microsoft Israel. “We are thrilled to be working closely with Glide to continue improving the experience and offering worldwide.”
Since first debuting in Spring 2013, Glide has dramatically improved how millions worldwide communicate face-to-face with their loved ones. On Glide, users ‘ping-pong’ messages back-and-forth in real time, building a fun and natural visual conversation that can include videos, photos and text. Unlike a video call, Glide messages can be viewed live or later — whenever it’s most convenient.
All conversations are stored for free on Glide’s secure private cloud, so they can be experienced anytime, and messages do not eat up precious space on devices’ limited memory. Glide also gives you complete control of the content you create, letting you unsend and delete any and all content from anywhere it was shared. Video chatting on Glide consumes less than half of the data of other video communication products.
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.
