Descriptions


Marco Polo is a face-to-face messaging app for one-to-one and group conversations—bringing family and friends closer than ever with genuine conversations and moments shared.

Face-to-Face
Connecting face-to-face brings you closer to those you love—no matter the distance. Send a video, a “Polo”, to start a conversation, tell a story, coordinate plans, share moments.

Connect in Groups
Create as many groups as you like to stay in touch with family and friends near and far. Reminisce or catch the latest.

Fun & Funny
Laugh, be silly; voice and camera filters and doodles will make your whole group chuckle.

Share Daily Moments Effortlessly
Genuine time together happens in moments like saying good morning, the baby’s cute gurgles, watching the ball game, desperately needed advice on that outfit. One tap to connect instantly.

On Your Own Time or Real Time
Chat with friends and family real-time (walkie talkie style), or respond when it’s convenient. No need to wait for everyone to be live. Rich conversations at your own pace.

Hands-Free
Perfect for connecting on-the-go when your hands are busy—turn dinner prep time or the walk between appointments into quality time with loved ones.

Full Expressions, No Typing
After sending a Polo, you won’t want to text again. With one tap, express yourself fully; see facial expressions, hear tone of voice. No typing, no miscommunication.

Free & Unlimited
Go ahead, chat as long as you like. It’s free to use. Most Polos are stored on our server to free up space on your device.

Enjoy Now and Watch Again Later
Watch and re-watch Polos whenever you like—they won’t disappear.

It’s Private
Trust that your communication is private. No one has access to your Polos.

    Awesome, wish there were more voices and filters to play around with but all in all great app. A lot of fun to keep in contact with friends from out of state. Im a military brat and have started talking to friends that I haven't seen in forever. We don't always have the time to have a conversation so this is a great way to keep in touch and feel closer by actually seeing their faces. It's a wonderful app. I love it. Full Review

    It's SO much fun!! Please add more filters!! The only complaint I have is I've noticed friends/family that have tried downloading this app using the link I send through the app, doesn't really work. Not sure why but only 2 of 5 people I've invited have been able to download it without issues. Full Review

    I like being able to talk and see my family who live far away. Marco Polo works so much easier than Skype because we don't have to be on at the same time. I can leave them a message when it works for me and they can respond when it works for them. It comes through clear, the pictures are great, and the whole family enjoys a conversation while being all over the country and world!! we can group ourselves together just like a text message and everybody can see and hear the same Marco Polo while getting to hear everyone's responses.

    I LOVE mp!! It is such a great tool. I love being able to stay connected with fam and friends in such a unique way from so far away. I live in a different time zone than my family and friends, so they may send me a mp at a good time for them, and I can respond at a good time for me and vice versa. I do have a suggestion-it would be cool if mp had a feature that allowed us to start a video where we left off. There are times I start a video and go out of the app, and it starts right back where I paused. Then it's times that I have to start all over. I love the 5 sec back feature and the fast forward feature, but it would be super cool to have a little feature like YouTube where we can just adjust the video to where we want it. Even with that suggestion, it's nothing negative. I use mp for different studies(bible, books, etc) so some of my vids(received and sent) can easily be 10-30mins long because we are sharing our thoughts/notes back and forth. So, if I get 15mins into a video and have to stop, it would be nice to go back to that 15min mark and start from there. I just love mp, so much!!! Great, great, great app!!! Full Review

    I love the app. It's clear and no garbling. The filters are a bit difficult to figure out (how they get turned on and off?) Also it would be so nice to be able to save other.people's videos. My daughter is sending lots of my granddaughter and I'd love to be able to save them myself. Full Review

    Was irritated with the dishonest marketing. I get text from a friend, "Bxxxx, put this on your phone so Can send you a video message", along with a link. I'm irritated with this person for wanting me to download another social/communication platform, but do anyway so I can get their message. Get it installed, opening it, ittext my friend and ask what was the video they wanted to send. "When? ", they asked. "You wanted me to install this app so you could send a message". "Oh, friend invited me to this app, I guess it invited you when I installed it." So if you aren't careful not to invite all your contacts, this app will pretend to be you and tell your friends to get it so "you" can send then something. Full Review

    I am not big on social media so the only account I have is Facebook. I love the fact I can communicate with my family and friends without having to download all these different apps and creating all these accounts that I'm just going to forget the passwords to tomorrow. Facebook could actually learn a few things about streaming from Marco Polo. I can talk and move and not have to worry about slow streaming. I have yet to find a flaw since I am a basic person and I don't desire the extra filters and stuff. Full Review

    This app is really amazing it cuts back on the misunderstandings of what people are meaning because you can actually see their expressions and overall it's just a great app. And it's really awesome when you have family that live out of state that you actually get to converse with them like that. And it has a lot of fun in app things to spark up the text Full Review

    It seems to be a decent app, but it's annoying that it keeps repeating that someone wants to talk to you right now even after I swipe it away because I'm too busy to respond right now. Also, I made a favorites list of the people I wanted and yet it keeps trying to push me to send invitations to my whole address book, which I absolutely don't want to do with most of my address book. Annoying! I hate how aggressive you've made the app in these regards. I'm not sure I'll keep it. Full Review

    I wish we could send/ share pictures, links etc like glide does. Wish the colors of natural wasn't so weird looking. I hate the pixels. I love how it never buffers like glide. I love that we can keep the history and how there's group chat. But I wish there was more things like stickers fitters and sharing thhis to send in mp. This is becoming huge in the deaf community.

    Front camera recording is way too dark on my phone. And I know it's only this app, because everything else including the phone's regular camera app I am bright with the front camera, under the same lighting conditions. Also stop trying to force users to share this app with their friend list. It's way too easy to accidentally send all Full Review

    I LOVE IT, but just one small glitch and that is once I got the request to download the app from a friend and downloaded it next thing I know it had sent requests to ALMOST EVERYONE in my contacts! That needs to be left up to ME! So please fix that and you are a five star app! 😁 Full Review

    Omg love this app! Me and my friends group chat daily thanks to Marco Polo makes it's so much easier especially when we live in different countries! Addictive, easy to use and I would liken it to text messaging but with video. This has taken over my social media apps for sure thanks for the great invention! Full Review

    I've only had this app about an hour but so far so good! Easy to use and doesn't try to do everything. Can you stop suggesting friends to me though? I'm worried I'm going to accidentally add someone I don't intend to. Full Review

    Nice app. Good for communication with family in other parts of the world, the videos stay, and easy enough to use for young children! My son loves the effects. Sometimes you have buffering issues and have to wait for a video to load, even with Wi-Fi. Otherwise it would be a five-star app. Full Review

    I doubted the app at first when my husband sent it to me. Then after talking on it and writing and all the other fun things, My husband said, I see u like the app. I told him it's AWESOME. I'm deleting my Tango app. This one is better and more fun. Thanks creator of this app:) Full Review

    I love the app! One thing that happens is that if I can't finish a whole video it starts back at the beginning about half the time. The fast forward helps slightly but I still have to listen to the whole thing again. Full Review

    Great app I love it a lot. Its a good way to keep in touch with friends or family members without having to make a video call and it good because you get to explain yourself better rather that texting you can have a typo but in the video its really simple Full Review

    Ohh you will start getting annoying notifications like crazy ( check in with "so and so "on Marco polo) it doesn't stop you will be getting this notification every day so get ready and friend request is horrible if you accidentally click next when it ask you to invite your cpntact list you are in for a rude awakening my boss is getting like 5 requests non stop to join marco polo. Then it doesn't give you the option to uncheck allll your contact you will have to un check them one by one. To be very honest the app is nice and fun but things like this ruins the moment my wife had to completely remove the app from her phone. Marco polo should have there app a little bit more private now other people on my contact list know i have join marco polo and i wish some of them shouldn't know i have this app.!!!!. To be honest if you have a supervisor or boss or an ex on your contact list and if you join Marco polo they will know you just join. They will see your profile pic. NOT GOOD.! but other then that the app is fun and entertaining. I will give more stars if they fix this issue and put a private mode and the contact request glitch. Full Review

    I love using the app. It's a fun way to stay in contact with your friends and family members, the voices are funny but I hardly ever use them, I love that you can text while video recording I love the drawing feature the only thing that this app is missing is the option to use flash while recording that would be cool! Other than that I would highly recommend using this app, it's like a video chat voice mail you can watch and reply whenever you want! I hardly ever experienced any glitches or any issues, hope to see the flash feature soon Full Review

    I would give it a higher rating but the video quality is not good - the accessibility is really easy and I'm going to get my 80 year old Dad to join in. I'm sure he could do this and it's addicting! 🌞 Thanks - are you on Wall Street? Full Review
