PALO ALTO, Calif. – Tango, the leader in mobile video communications, today made avialable two new features – Video Messages and Tango Surprises.
Video Messages: Capture Every Occasion
Video Messages allow people to record and send high-quality video content to their friends on Tango. Now even when a Tango call is missed, people can leave a video message to complete the experience.
Video Messages is simple to use and works seamlessly across platforms. People with iOS and Android phones and tablets can send video messages within the Tango application. People with Tango for Windows Phone and on PCs can receive video messages which can be played in mobile and web browsers.
Tango Surprises: A Fun New Way To Connect
Tango Surprises allows people to personalize their video calls with a series of video animations including a ninja that slices the screen, a monkey that entertains young ones, beating hearts to express love, and more.
New categories of content will be added to Tango Surprises regularly. People can send Tango Surprises from their iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads to other Tango members. Tango Surprises will arrive on Android and other mobile platforms in shortly.
"Today’s release of Video Messages and Tango Surprises marks the next step toward giving our members more ways to connect, have fun and be entertained with Tango,” said Uri Raz, co-founder and CEO of Tango. “We’re excited to see how these new features will create richer interactions for Tango members to actively participate with one another in their video calls. These are the first of many new features that transforms video calling from a utility to a more interactive experience.”
“Video messages make our core offering even more exciting with new ways to stay connected to friends and family,” said Eric Setton, co-founder and CTO of Tango. “Once you start using this product, you realize that it’s the best way to watch and share your favorite video moments, similar to how people interact with photos on their phone. It’s addictive.”
“The burgeoning virtual goods market up to now has been focused on social gaming and we’re extending it to mobile video calling,” said Setton. “Our vision for Tango Surprises is to merge entertainment and media into the Tango experience to allow people to express themselves in unique and interesting ways.”
