What is Marco Polo?
Is a video messaging and video hosting service mobile app. The app was created in 2014 by Joya Communications. Joya Communications was founded by Vlada Bortnik and Michael Bortnik.
How Does It Work
The homepage is populated with rows of squares. Each square is a different contact or group of contacts that users can click and start a video chat
When video chatting on the Marco Polo app, users can see their chat history and tap on old videos to rewatch them
Any user in a group can watch any of the videos in the chat history, even if they weren’t the person that created the video
Users can filter their videos and filter their voice to a lower pitch, sound like a robot, or as if they inhaled helium
Other features include drawing and adding text to videos
Users can respond to messages right away, like a walkie talkie, or send a video reply when it’s convenient
