    Glide - Video Chat Messenger's review

    Published: 2015-03-13, by .

    Send video messages to your friends.

    • Easy to use
    • Watch messages live or later
    • Camera settings only adjustable while recording
    • Slow internet connection will mean low quality

    "Chat More Personally - With Video Messages!"


    Glide lets you send video messages to your friends up to 5 minutes in length, quickly and easily - choose a friend and hit record. It doesn't let you adjust camera settings before recording however - you must adjust them while recording. The app works by streaming messages - which is good in one sense, as messages can be watched live, but it also means if you have a slower internet connection quality will be reduced.


    Glide is easy to use, and looks good. You can watch video messages live as they are recorded, or scroll through your log and watch them later.


    Camera settings must be adjusted while recording, which is unfortunate. Messages are streamed, which is cool, but means if you have a slow internet connection the stream and the recorded message will both be of a lower quality - and if I wanted video streaming, I would use Skype or something of the like.

    This app has been using permissions while not even in use. Aka using my camera. Uninstalling asap.

    Kept getting notifications of background camera usage from this app. Not sure why it would use my camera when I'm not using it

    I love the covienence of sending a video message and reviewing at your leisure. Real time at a later time. In addition, there is also the ability to have instant real time video chatting. My favorite communication app by far. I have my entire family glidiing coast to coast. We used to see one another every few years, now we see one another in real time daily, via group video chats. Love it.

    Works awesome but has a few minor glitches. Also, the video deletion is pretty stupid. It deletes the video but leaves the box in the conversation list wasting space. Minor issues but an awesome app
