Marco Polo Video Walkie Talkie



    Marco Polo Video Walkie Talkie's review

    Published: 2016-07-29, by .

    Marco Polo aims to replace standard messengers with quick vid selfies instead

    • Very easy to set-up
    • Intuitive UI
    • Solid video quality
    • Way too many notifications
    • Data hog
    • Battery drainer

    "Send short video messages"


    Marco Polo Live on the iOS or Marco Polo Video Walkie Talkie on the Android allow you to send video selfie messages to your friends and loved ones. After registering your phone number, Marco Polo lets you see a quick video on how to use the app. You can also add new contacts who also use Marco Polo or invite them to try it out. Functioning like a walkie talkie, you’re able to send short video messages, which your contact can see either at the moment you’re sending it or right after.


    Marco Polo is very easy to start using and not complicated to set-up at all thanks to an intuitive interface with plenty of familiar buttons. Video quality is also pretty solid, depending on your device’s frontal camera.


    Marco Polo, please stop sending me so many notifications once I’ve asked you to stop. Also, be careful if you use Marco Polo on your data network, because this app is a data hog. It’s also a critical battery drainer.

    Marco Polo is a face-to-face messaging app for one-to-one and group conversations—bringing family and friends closer than ever with genuine conversations and moments shared.

    Connecting face-to-face brings you closer to those you love—no matter the distance. Send a video, a “Polo”, to start a conversation, tell a story, coordinate plans, share moments.

    Connect in Groups
    Create as many groups as you like to stay in touch with family and friends near and far. Reminisce or catch the latest.

    Fun & Funny
    Laugh, be silly; voice and camera filters and doodles will make your whole group chuckle.

    Share Daily Moments Effortlessly
    Genuine time together happens in moments like saying good morning, the baby’s cute gurgles, watching the ball game, desperately needed advice on that outfit. One tap to connect instantly.

    On Your Own Time or Real Time
    Chat with friends and family real-time (walkie talkie style), or respond when it’s convenient. No need to wait for everyone to be live. Rich conversations at your own pace.

    Perfect for connecting on-the-go when your hands are busy—turn dinner prep time or the walk between appointments into quality time with loved ones.

    Full Expressions, No Typing
    After sending a Polo, you won’t want to text again. With one tap, express yourself fully; see facial expressions, hear tone of voice. No typing, no miscommunication.

    Free & Unlimited
    Go ahead, chat as long as you like. It’s free to use. Most Polos are stored on our server to free up space on your device.

    Enjoy Now and Watch Again Later
    Watch and re-watch Polos whenever you like—they won’t disappear.

    It’s Private
    Trust that your communication is private. No one has access to your Polos.
