FOR BUSY PEOPLE
Life is busy. Marco Polo works when you have a moment to talk, even if your schedules don’t match. Talk when you’re on the go, between appointments, whenever it’s convenient for you. Your friend can watch in real time or later. Unlike other video apps, you don’t need to be live.
A NEW KIND OF VIDEO CHAT
“What’s the difference between this and FaceTime?“
The difference is you can have an ongoing conversation that doesn’t interrupt your day, that you can pick up and drop off whenever you want. It really helps you to not feel lonely and to stay in contact – personal contact – with your family members and friends that you may not otherwise be able to be close to.
WITH THE PEOPLE WHO MATTER MOST
With people you love, texts and social media don’t give you the whole picture. Busy lives make phone or video calls hard to schedule. Have spontaneous face to face conversations and really see how your loved ones are doing. As your conversations unfold, you can be in life together throughout your day.
BE TOGETHER WITH GROUPS
Include friends and family even when they don’t live in the same place or in the same timezone. Each person can talk and watch when it works for them.
EASY AND FUN
For grandparents, families, and friends, speaking face to face is as easy as pressing “Start” and “Stop.” Have fun with doodles and voice filters, too!
NEVER HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE
Don’t get stuck on a phone call at the wrong time, or leave voicemails you never know were received. Marco Polo gives you tone, context, and certainty that your message was heard.
FULL LIFE, NOT FULL PHONE
With no limits on length, and video stored in the cloud, you have room for life. It’s easy to share the moments you’d otherwise have missed.
MEMORIES THAT LAST
Keep your conversations alive with videos that don’t disappear. Go back and rewatch your special moments and never forget what you said!
NOT JUST FOR IOS
Talk to friends and family face-to-face even if they aren't iPhone users. Works over WiFi anywhere in the world.
SAFE AND PRIVATE
No one can find you or your family on Marco Polo without your phone number.

Ratings and Reviews
Great Communications App!
I’ve just recently downloaded this after hearing other people mention that they were using it. I’m so glad that I did! The app is very well developed and clean, but it also has a refreshing simplicity and isn’t complicated to figure out. After watching a few of the helpful videos, you’re a master.
I was raised in the US but I now live in the UK. After an evening of messing around with Marco Polo, I can see the rich implications of this concept. With schedules being so busy these days (not just internationally), I needed another way to keep in touch. One that still feels personal, but is on demand (unlike completely live video chats). Marco Polo looks very promising in fulfilling that role. The hardest part is getting everyone to download the app. That and helping people to overcome their shyness in recording themselves on video :).
I’m really not happy about this. I’ve been having conversations on the app for about a month now or possibly two, but anyway recently all of my recordings still appear in the chat but as soon as I finish listening to a polo from my boyfriend it automatically disappears. They only one that I have from him is his very first one, but other than that they’ve all been disappearing which is really annoying because I like to look back at the conversation sometimes. I really need to know if this can be fixed either on my end or by the team. By the way I am a visually impaired Apple voiceover user.
People in recovery
I’m one of a group of about 55 recovering drug addicts in the South West of England who’ve formed a group on this app.
Our Marco Polo group is a place where we read daily readings and support each other as we share our journey’s of recovery in NA.
This little app has been transformative to
Our lives, enabling us to feel connected and safe throughout each day, particularly as we live across a rural area where it’s hard to all meet up.
The format helps us to feel safe enough to risk opening up and sharing our vulnerability.
Where most of us find things like Facebook are new addictions that actually add to our feelings of isolation and obsession, this app is facilitating real intimacy and deepening bonds of connection and belonging that we are all loving.
Thanks to everyone who has helped create this space for us! 🙂🙏❤️🙂
