Marco Polo for Android
is a free communications app that allows you to record and send videos or host video calls with your contacts.
Marco Polo distinguishes itself from other apps, such as WhatsApp and Snapchat, in that you can host a video conversation over a length of time by recording and sending your responses when your contact is not available. Additionally, the videos remain available so that you never forget where the conversation left off. Your contact is, then, able to open and view your message, and to send you a video chat in response.
To make your videos more creative, you can also add filters, drawings, and effects to your videos before sending.
The app is easy to use and will simplify staying in contact in a meaningful way.
