“We are satisfying the demand of Windows Phone users around the world by helping them stay in closer contact with their loved ones in a way that mimics real-life interactions,” said Ari Roisman, Glide CEO. “Windows Phone users worldwide recognized the potential of Glide for more thoughtful, personal communication and now we’re excited to make it available to them.”

Since first debuting in spring 2013, Glide has dramatically improved how millions of users worldwide communicate face-to-face with their loved ones, regardless of time or place, by combining the convenience of texting with the power and personality of live video messaging. Unlike video calling platforms, Glide messages can be viewed live or later -- whenever it’s most convenient for the recipient. Glide messages ‘ping-pong’ back-and-forth quickly, creating a fun and natural visual conversation that can include videos, photos and text.

All conversations are stored for free on Glide’s secure private cloud, so they can be experienced anytime, viewed an unlimited number of times, and take up no space on users’ devices.
