About this app

Marco Polo combines the best of texting, social media and video chats - all in one private, easy to use app.

It’s different from typical social media apps because Marco Polo is real, trusted and built to be good for you. Unlike many apps, Marco Polo does not sell user data for advertising. Marco Polo isn't about likes or social comparisons. This is an app that parents actually want their family to use.

Marco Polo is vastly more practical. You never play phone tag and you don’t have to schedule blocks of time just to say hi. Marco Polo gives you tone, context and certainty that your message was heard.

With no limits on length, and video stored in the cloud, you have room for life.

You can talk to friends and family face-to-face even if they aren't iPhone users because Marco Polo works over WiFi anywhere in the world. No more time zone scheduling!

Marco Polo is designed to be for your closest friends and family. You can't search and find anyone without their mobile number. Marco Polo is also ad-free and we do not collect your data.

When it works its okay. But it often doesn't work. Seems to have a hard time keeping up with network switching. Videos get stuck often, sometimes never loading. The app will then sometimes completely lock up and eventually quit. A full phone restart is required to work again. But it sure can remind me of the paid version. Definitely do not rely on this when your message is important.

I started using this app over a year ago to talk to friends and actually see people in the pandemic world when I otherwise wouldn't have seen anyone. I absolutely love it! My friends and I went in on a family membership to cut down the cost and get all the great features, and it's honestly a much better app with the added features than it was as a free version.

I usually don't rate apps but this one is just so simple and perfect. There are premium features but they don't constantly ask you to upgrade. They're aren't ads. My friend group uses it as a simple way to hang out together now that we're adults with demanding schedules. It's not as good as seeing them in person but it is way better than texting imo.
