▶ What is Glide?
Glide is a live video messaging app that combines the convenience of texting with the expressiveness of video. Now your friends can see you smile and laugh instead of getting an emoji or an “LOL”.

▶ How does it work?
Glide is really easy to use: Just tap on the blue button and your video message will be sent instantly. Tap again when you’re done. Your friends can watch you live as you record, and you can see their response in less than one second after you finished.

▶ Why is it convenient?
Glides can be watched whenever you’re ready - chat live or later. You don’t need to wait until your friends are online to chat. All video chats are saved on the cloud and don’t take up any space on your device, so you can watch and rewatch videos as many times as you’d like, absolutely free.

▶ What can I use Glide for?
Glide is an awesome free tool for anyone who wants to chat with their friends and family in a fast, personal way. It’s also really useful for:
• Group chats of up to 50 people - family chats, BFFs, study groups, etc.
• Keeping in touch with people who live far away - the conversation can happen whenever is best for each person, so timezones aren’t an issue..
• Talking to grandparents - Glide is very simple and doesn’t require typing, so young kids can use it easily.
• Sign language - Glide is proud to be widely used by deaf and hard of hearing communities around the world who prefer the convenience of video chat.

If you're feeling that text can't say enough, you're ready. Start gliding and get a little closer with your loved ones!

▶ What is Glide like on the Apple Watch?

• Fast and easy access to your Glide messages, hot off your wrist. Get message notifications, watch live streaming videos and respond with texts without having to take your phone out.
• Voice to Text on your Apple Watch works on Glide, too!
• Handoff - Seamlessly pick up where you left off watching a video on your Apple Watch from your iPhone.

▶ What Else?
• Review your videos before sending, or tap to stream live - whichever fits you best
• Great for texting when video is less convenient
• Photos can be snapped on the spot or uploaded from your device
• Cool filters make your video messages look awesome
