Glide is the world’s first video texting app.

It combines the personality of video chat with the convenience of texting, allowing you to send private video messages to friends with just a single tap. If they’re available, they can see you as you’re recording; if they’re busy or offline, they can watch or respond later - just like a text message.

All messages are stored on the cloud so they don’t take up any space on your phone and can be rewatched at any time.

Founded in 2012 by Ari Roisman, Jonathan Caras and Adam Korbl - three successful entrepreneurs who live thousands of miles from many of their family members and friends. Frustrated by the difficulties communicating across time zones, they created an easier way to stay in touch with video.

In January 2013, founder & former CEO of ooVoo Philippe Schwartz joined the company as Executive Director.
