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.
-Erin

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.

Best messaging app ever!!

My three siblings are all over the country so we don't see each other often. And we're all busy so even talking on the phone regularly is a challenge. But with Marco Polo we talk several times a day and now feel so much more connected and closer than ever! It's as if we were living near one another and having coffee daily. We all treasure this app more than you can imagine. We created a channel for talking to my nephew who is in the Air Force across the country and he really appreciates the opportunity to hear our words of support and encouragement. We have another channel with all the nieces and nephews, allowing us to become so much closer. And we have a channel with our cousins in Italy whom we have never met in person, and that has been really awesome!! This app is do much better than Snapchat or Instagram or FB. My only complaint is that as of the last update it is behaving oddly. If I hit the x to exit from a Polo I'm watching so I can jump ahead and record one, it just freezes the screen on the Polo I was watching while the audio keeps playing and I have to force close the app and maybe I can stop the Polo that's playing so I can jump ahead. This happens every time I try to jump ahead to record when I'm listening to a Polo. It didn't used to do that. iPhone XS Max with the latest iOS. Otherwise we all love it.

Love Marco Polo

My niece asked me to join Marco Polo and I was hesitant at first even though it was free. But what I have come to really love besides the fact that it puts us in contact with each other, is the convenience of Marco Polo. I can talk to anyone in the middle the night when I can’t sleep; I can talk in the early hours of the morning before my day gets started; likewise, I can listen to what they sent to me at My convenience regardless of the time of day or night.

You can choose to save your conversations or you can erase them when you’re done with them. For years are used to write letters that took a long amount of time not to mention pains of the all hands; then I sent tape cassettes back-and-forth to people over the states to stay closer; and texting also takes a lot of time! But with Marco Polo, you can talk as much or as little as you want to but the most important part is you can talk whenever it is convenient for you to talk. It doesn’t matter at all whether the person you’re talking to is awake or not because they’re not getting this Marco Polo when you’re making it. They listen to it whenever they have time and that might not be for a day or two or even a week. That’s the beauty of Marco Polo.

Marco Polo has put me in touch with people that I otherwise was rarely ever in touch with. I absolutely love it and you will too!

What The Change?!

Ok so I have a few friends that have this app and we all use it ALL DAY EVERY DAY!! I hate/despise Snapchat! This app is easy to use and understand!! The ONLY reason I gave it 4 stars is because things like this... and I wish I could add pictures to this review to help illustrate the point I’m trying to make.

Used the app this morning and it was the same setup as every other day, midway through the day it updated, or so I thought. The ‘emoji icons’ that where at the bottom of the screen where now on the right side of the screen making it easier to not press one by mistake. There where a couple of other small changes but I don’t remember what they where at the moment because it switches back to how it used to be, hence the ‘reverse updating’ I’m mildly confused/complaining about. I even went through and did a proper update to see if I could get to the ‘new’ changes, nothing. Power cycled my fone, still nothing. Checked for any ‘missing’ updates, none to be found... I really liked the new look and was very pleased with how you ‘cleaned up’ the screen area. Either plz fix it to how it was around 2pm cst or just fix the screen clutter!! Nothing like going to press START and being a 1/10sec to slow and ‘loving’ a message of ‘oh, my moms cat died today...’

OTHERWISE... This is actually a really good app overall. Again my friends, all in other states, use it DAILY!!
