No keyboard? No problem! Get chat notifications and watch live videos right from your wrist. Reply instantly without having to take out your phone - it's that easy!

• Notification sound update
We've temporarily changed our Glide notifications sound to Apple's Tri-Tone alert, for technical reasons supporting our Apple Watch release. We'll go back to the Glide sound in our next version.
