Video chat with instant translation for friends and families who speak different languages. Byrdhouse helps break down language barriers within your circle. Here’s what Byrdhouse provides:

- Video chat with instant translation
Every family and friend deserves equal access to language. Understand your loved ones better through natural face-to-face conversations without the constant interruptions with 3rd party interpreters. We currently offer our service in three languages: English, Spanish, and Chinese (Simplified).

- Making real connections like never before
Speaking different languages should not become a barrier to building deep and meaningful relationships. Let us take care of the language barrier so you can focus on forming true bonds with your family and friends.

- Private and secure conversations
No ads and we don’t sell your information. Your conversations are safe with us.

Learn how Byrdhouse works:
1. Sign up and select your preferred language. Byrdhouse is currently available in three languages: English, Spanish, and Chinese (Simplified).

2. Add your inner circle from your contact. Confirm your preferred language for video chat. No extra step required to select the language to translate from. Our AI technology will auto detect the language the other person's speaking during the video chat, and translate that into the language of your selection.

3. During video chat, you'll see the translation in the form of a live caption on your screen. You can choose to turn it on or off or change based on your language needs.

4. Invite more friends and families who experience language barriers to use Byrdhouse, and help us bring equal language access to all families around the world!

Essential video chat app for multicultural families

The inability to communicate with my parents-in-law has been a major pain point for me ever since getting married. Byrdhouse not only resolves this issue, but delivers lasting benefits that I didn’t anticipate. Now, instead of sheepishly chiming in a few times as my wife conducts 99% of our long-distance conversations with her parents, I’m able to have full conversations with them on my own without the need for my wife to constantly pause and translate for us. In addition to being able to communicate seamlessly now, I feel closer to my wife’s parents than I had ever imagined. And the necessity for this app has only increased during COVID with the inability to visit each other physically. Byrdhouse is a truly essential app for multicultural families who have the desire to improve communication and understanding of one another.

We are grateful for your thoughtful review. We completely understand the pain point of feeling left out during a family conversation due to language barrier, and thrilled to see that Byrdhouse has been helpful for your family in building deep and lasting relationship during COVID and for you to feel included in every family communication. We hope we can continuously be you and your family's communication companion, and grow together :)
