Marco Polo combines the best of texting, social media and video chats - all in one private, easy to use app.

It’s different from typical social media apps because Marco Polo is real, trusted and built to be good for you. Unlike many apps, Marco Polo does not sell user data for advertising. Marco Polo isn't about likes or social comparisons. This is an app that parents actually want their family to use.

Marco Polo is vastly more practical. You never play phone tag and you don’t have to schedule blocks of time just to say hi. Marco Polo gives you tone, context and certainty that your message was heard.

With no limits on length, and video stored in the cloud, you have room for life.

You can talk to friends and family face-to-face even if they aren't iPhone users because Marco Polo works over WiFi anywhere in the world. No more time zone scheduling!

Marco Polo is designed to be for your closest friends and family. You can't search and find anyone without their mobile number. Marco Polo is also ad-free and we do not collect your data.

Brilliant, way better than I expected

This app is way better than I expected I wondered what the point of it was initially, given that we can just text videos to each other, however it’s much easier to use than that and feels more like a conversation and a text message mixed together!

You can pick up where you left off at any time of day, and get back to people when it’s convenient and that’s a huge plus.

***I would love a “but in” button, so that if someone leaves a longer message, and I want to reply at different parts of the conversation before I forget what they said, I could record a reply holding that down, release it and continue watching their video. They would then see maybe 3-4 short videos from me in reply, in sequence.

Best video messaging for families

So I’ve moved interstate and this app has helped me stay in touch with my family. I know there are other apps like FaceTime and such but this app allows me to still record and keep precious moments with my family. The features and filters are easy and fun to use especially when I talk to my nieces, I use the voice altering feature for a laugh. I feel so connected and enjoy using this on a daily basis. Go use it now!

Loved this app till they made most free features payable :(

This is not at all worth $60 per year.

We’ve been using this app for 2 years while my sister lived abroad and loved it! I recommended it to everyone. About a month or two ago they updated it meaning that instead of upgrading to the paid version and getting lots of cool new features, they took away lots of the normal functionality and want to charge for that. Super super disappointed! We would pay for the upgrade to keep using it if it was reasonable or felt worth it, but having had access to the features of speeding up the polo or sending a pic instead, I guarantee you will be wasting your money. Plus who is to say they won’t do that again and lock access to your historical polos next.
