Glide is a live video messaging app that has just launched on Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile. The service is already available on other platforms, including Android and iOS, but now those with a Windows-powered smartphone will be able to join in the fun and chat with others.
The app focuses on sending short and snappy video messages, so instead of receiving "lol" you'd actually be able to see the reaction of the person you're talking to. What's more is those who are part of the conversation can also see live recordings of others in the chat as they record their messages. Best of all, it's completely free and videos are stored in the cloud to save on local storage.
It's ideal for most situations since the app can support up to 50 people in a single group chat, perfect for groups of friends or family. The app is available for both Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile. Hit the store link below for more details.
