Welcome to our new blog where we will keep you posted about updates, news and announcements about Unda, our video messaging app.
Today is not like any regular day for us. Today we are finally shipping Unda for Android, just 4 months after releasing it for iOS. It’s been a great team effort to deliver it in such a short time considering that our iOS version took a bit more than 6 months to develop.
If you have an Android phone, go ahead and download Unda for free from the Google Play Store.
For us, it feels like it’s been a super long journey, but honestly we are just getting started.
It’s really amazing to see how fast our communication habits changed during the smart phone era, don’t you think?. In just a few years we gradually moved away from using our voice as the main way to talk over our phones and we replace it entirely with short blurbs of information using text, emoticons, photos and stickers.
While all that is really amazing, it’s also becoming really clear that we are living in a dehumanized time where communication is becoming less and less human in a way. While we are more connected and have internet access literally everywhere, the majority of our conversations are mainly text, and this is completely un-human in a way.
Communication is a very basic human need, but sometimes it feels like texting “I love you” or sending a sticker is just not enough. Video is really intimate and powerful, and while there are a bunch of really amazing products to make video phone calls we live in such a busy time that even doing that has become really complicated.
Unda solves these two problems at the same time:
1) We want to make communications human again. We want to make messaging human again.
2) Sending video messages is, in a way, way much more efficient than making video phone calls during the day. It takes only a few seconds to share some video with your family or friends on unda, and you don’t have to worry if they are busy, moving from point A or B, or on a different time zone.
Unda is also a very unique app where we focus on you and your friends. Each conversation is a super simple and clean chronologically organized video messaging list between you and your friends.
Also, one of the most unique features about unda is group video messaging. You will love it once you use it. It’s really easy to share video with up to 8 people at the same time. And when all your friends join into the same conversation, you realize you can’t do this with any other app. It’s really fun.
There are a lot of things happening around us every single day. Don’t you think it’s a shame we are not sharing those moments with the people we love? in a private, secure and fast way? we are tired of sharing everything with everyone, all the time. We now know that we don’t want to share everything on our public timelines, but we also want to keep those memories somewhere available all the time.
We have a bunch of things to share in the near future but for now we just want to end this post by saying: thank you. So far we’ve received tremendous support from users all over the world discovering the meaning of our motto: Life is Bigger than Texting, and you know what? it really is.
