ADDING MULTIMEDIA Glide Brings Live Video Messaging to Windows Phone

Popular video messenger now available to Windows Phone’s 100 million
global users

PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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.
