Heard of Glide? It’s a service that boasts itself as the fastest way to send and receive video messages. If you’ve been a diehard Windows Phone the past few years you probably haven’t paid much attention, mostly because they don’t have an app in the Windows Phone Store. That looks like it’s about to change. A Windows Phone app for Glide is apparently in the works.
Windows Phone Central reader reached out to Glide via Facebook and asked if a Windows Phone app was coming. Glide replied that they’re working on it. No release date in sight, but that’s better than nothing.
What’s the big deal with Glide (http://www.glide.me)? It’s a pretty freaking popular app on iOS and Android. It’s “insanely fast” at sending videos with no uploading or downloading required. Messages can be watched in real-time or later. Chats are saved in the cloud, so you don’t need to take up space on your phone to download the messages. You can also do group chats, which is pretty cool. And like any modern photo/video app, there are filters for you to use and enhance your video. Sepia video chats ftw!
We’ve reached out to Glide to see if they’d confirm the status of a Windows Phone app and give us a better idea of when it’ll hit. We’ll update accordingly.
Thanks for the tip Johnathan J!
