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!

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 :).

The best app ever

I absolutely love this app, I’ve not long been introduced to it but it has been the most incredible thing to improve my contact with some of my very best friends. Keeping in contact is now so much easier, no planning of video calls and no sending hundreds of WhatsApp, this feels real, has brought us all so much closer and I love picking it up and catching up on everyone’s life in my own time and replying when I have time to. It’s a brilliant idea and I highly recommend getting it now.

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.
