Chime is the best way to keep in touch with those you care about, outside of the real thing.

Chime is FREE and was voted the best new product on Product Hunt in August 4th, 2015!

With Chime, you create video conversations, "Chimes", with friends, family, teams, and any small group that you care about. Everyone in a conversation ("Chime") can record to it throughout the day, creating one rich, intertwined group story that serves as both a way to communicate about what you're doing now and, afterward, as a memory.

Your lives, with the people you care about, as one beautiful ongoing movie.

Like texting, you can send messages, "Chimes", to anyone who is in your contacts list.

Our users love to use Chime for:

- A Chime with your best friend, swapping videos and jokes back and forth throughout the day.
- A Chime with your group of high school friends or college buddies, making fun of one another.
- A Chime with your boyfriend or girlfriend, sharing special moments as you're apart.
- A Chime with your family, sharing your vacations, nieces, nephews, and seeing Mom and Dad!
- A Chime with your soccer team sharing inside jokes that only you would understand
- A Chime with your sorority or fraternity, bonding together all around campus!

Name change? No problem!


I don't care if they change the name of this app every month. It is awesome!!!! I have been on this app from the very beginning, almost a year now, and finally all of my friends and colleagues are using it. Forget snapchat or any of the other video messaging apps. You can't have as much fun as you can with this. Check out my public chime of me taking my family to Greece, or my fantasy football chime. Any way you slice it, this app is a great tool to show your friends where you are, what you are doing, and share parts of your life with them face to face no matter the distance between. String is the perfect app to stay connected to your friends and family! Great work team String!

Beautiful app for keeping your friends close

I'm the founder of Chime. I sincerely love what our team has built. This version is our best yet. Our mission is to strengthen your most important relationships; we believe that the world is a better place if no one ever feels alone. Chime lets you share moments by exchanging short videos with the people you care about. Unlike synchronous video chat, Chime let's you do this on your own time, getting the benefits of face to face communication with the convenience of text.

Has the capacity to be a powerful new medium


I treasure the strings I've made with those I care about. Being able to capture dynamic moments in time and share them as a group is so much more powerful than other ways out there! So fun to use for everyone in my circle of family and friends. I can imagine a day when strings will be common place with people and companies. Highly recommend this app!
