Samba is where moments come alive. It's got a ton of amazing features all integrated in a beautiful design unlike any other app in its category!
Important - Samba is a brand new social platform. For the best experience, invite your friends to Samba to test it out so you can get the full experience.
Create groups to keep up with the people in your life. Family, friends, coworkers, roommates, teams, vacations... create as many groups as you like!
Meet New People
Chat with people nearby. View a map of nearby chats to meet new people. There's also channels that you can find people with similar interests such as Jordans, your favorite team, cooking, travel, surfing, etc. Or create your very own channel with whatever topic you like.
Send snaps privately that will automatically disappear after viewing. Set the time limit to view. Add a caption or doodle to your snaps to liven it up! The way messages, snaps, photos live together within our Reactive UI is totally seamless.
+ 3D Touch
Preview your texts using 3D Touch. You can also preview web links directly in your chat stream. There's several quick reply options this opens up including sending random GIFs.
+ Messaging - Floating Reactive Bubbles!
We've brought all of your messages together in one place: texts, photos, snaps, stickers, voice messages, GIFs. We've redesigned the message preview by freeing the content into "floating bubbles" that are easy on the eyes and react to your touch.
+ Filters and Image Editing Tools
Samba also has over 22 custom-designed filters to bring your photos to life and create something cinematic. It includes easy to use tools to control the amount of blend applied to each filter as well as control over brightness, contrast, and saturation. Just swipe across the image left or right to increase or decrease the intensity of the effect selected. Transform any image into something special to share!
+ Explore - The world's images at your fingertips
Samba was built for sharing gorgeous images and finding new people to follow that can open your eyes to a another world. The feed has a dynamic feel that's reactive to your touch as you scroll that makes the experience come alive!
Discover amazing new people to follow and connect with. Samba is a place to make positive connections with new people as well as existing friends. We've created a UI for your contacts and friends that highlights those that you contact the most.
+ Stickers, GIFs, Images... Bitmoji using custom keyboards!
New! We've added a slew of awesome stickers natively in the app as well as support for custom iOS image, Sticker and GIF keyboards. We also natively integrated Giphy search to share animated GIFs! This includes one of our favorite keyboards: Bitmoji, if you have it already installed. Just paste your Bitmoji into a text, and boom!
Fully customize the backgrounds, bubble colors, and text with our themes or editor. We've included many hand-picked backgrounds or you can use your own. Tap the Settings button on your profile to find the Themes editor.
Please note that it is possible for the recipient to screen capture or use other methods to record your snaps in ways that we cannot prevent. We will remove your snap from our servers within a reasonable time frame once all recipients have viewed it.
We've included privacy controls in the settings on your profile so you can decide who sees your public timeline or who can message you.
Samba was designed for rich media so please connect to WIFI or LTE networks for an optimal experience.
