No Bluetooth

No Bluetooth.... unable to use HearMax Belton hearing aids through MP. Other than that it’s great.
Best video messaging app
by kassfass on 2019/12/13 20:54
This app is awesome! We use it everyday, but would REALLY LOVE for them to add filters like Snapchat has. That’s the only thing keeping me from rating it 5 stars.

When I do
The stinkin button!
by FieryToad27 on 2019/12/11 22:25
When ever I want to write something and type something and I don’t want to show the other person my face my thumb always accidentally clicks the start button and it records and I quickly have to stop recording before the other person sees it and it’s kinda embarrassing 😬🙈 could you move the button?
Marco Polo changed my life
by Cocomayree on 2019/12/11 12:52
I love this app. It keeps me in touch with far flung family members so much more regularly than phone calls and so much more deeply than texts. I feel like it has actually made my relationships stronger. The interface is really simple and easy to use. It is everything you need and nothing you don’t.

Keeping in touch
by Al la fd hi k kk fdz on 2019/12/10 19:53
When just a text won’t do it is so nice to see the faces of the ones you live as they deliver their message
Connects families❤️
by mcnair mommy on 2019/12/09 22:47
So great for helping you HANDS FREE keep connected with family and friends❤️
Love this app seriously! So much better than phone/texts.
by MeganXoxo:) on 2019/12/09 21:49
I hate talking on my phone and half the time I feel like I never have time to physically sit and text or send a message. I’m in love with how simple it is to talk to whoever, it’s like sending a voicemail and it’s really nice. I’ve been using it for the past two hours with one of my girlfriends, she’s showing me how to do makeup. It’s perfect cause it keeps the video so I can go back watch or pause it. Thanks for getting me back out there & socializing! Seriously was feeling alone all the time sitting at home after I had my youngest daughter, so I really do appreciate this app and how well it keeps me feeling a little normal. Haha 👍🏽
Marco polo cool
by daveqb-5 on 2019/12/09 14:29
It’s not a bad app I stay in the loop with a couple of my buddies And we just you know in touch Thru out the course of the day or whatever I don’t know what else is the come of it but for right now it’s cool I like it and I’m not really a social media type of person really not at all this is the first app I’ve joint and my brother Jacob introduce me to it it’s kind a cool.
Great

by ms b 1 on 2019/12/09 02:01
I’m hoping I’m allowed to invite mr grandchildren in Portland. Just to be able to see and hear them would be wonderful. I really hope this free app. Is successful. What a great way to stay in contact with friends and family.

Allow music to play while recording, then it would be an awesome app.....

I like the app but it would be better if my music continued to play like previously while I I’m recording

by AppandGames12 on 2019/12/07 23:01
It’s super fun to send videos to my friends if myself and have them send one back to me!!
Thank you!
by Whitest Girl You Know on 2019/12/07 19:45
I just want to say thank you for building such an amazing app that lets me connect with my family across the country! My brother first told me about it and so I downloaded it and that first week I talked to my brother more than ever it felt like. So then slowly but surely the rest of my family members got it too and we talk ALL the time! We even have a group chat of 10 people and we chat throughout the week. None of this would be possible without this app. It’s just so easy and convenient to use because you can watch the messages and respond at your own time. Possibly the only app I’ve ever felt so more pure gratitude for!
Great app

So fun, but picture quality isn't the best.
by lgfit on 2019/12/07 01:02
I really love being able to talk in groups and to my kids in this app. I think the quality of the camera filter needs to improve.
Like a Walkie Talkie for your face!

This app is 4+ what 4 year old has a phone number come on they need to change that.
Hehe
by neisonfufons on 2019/12/05 23:07
It’s good app but sometimes the other person on the other end can’t hear me. Like the sound is blurred out. Other than that it’s a good app.
Fun app!
by FL person on 2019/12/05 15:19
A friend begged me to get this app so we could “chat” instead of text. I was leery at first because I’m not comfortable with “vlogging” (that’s what it feels like to me. But after a few times sending my videos to my friend, I’m really liking it. Thumbs up!
Best app for busy people
by !?,.456703 on 2019/12/05 14:40
Keeps it personal and teaches you how to show your face even with no makeup and not be embarrassed. Makes me more genuine about who I am . I love it. This app has taught me things. It’s super cool.
Great way to stay connected :-)
by China traveller52 on 2019/12/05 11:57
My wife and I raised our children outside the US. Now we are retired and live in Colorado. It is incredible to be able to send and receive Marco Polo video messages from our adult children who are now raising their families so far away. Right now I am in China and I can connect with my wife in Colorado and my daughter in Malawi. We would have never believed that we would one day be able to communicate this way!
Awesome 👏

Great way to stay in contact.
My favorite app in existence!
by suzmarstartup on 2019/12/04 22:52
I love Marco Polo! In this fast paced world and with each individual carrying jam-packed daily schedules; Marco Polo keeps me connected to family and friends when we would otherwise grow apart. It allows me to go back and listened to trusted advice and encouragement of my nearest and dearest. It allows me the convenience of listening to my loved ones on my own schedule without getting caught up in long conversations when I am on a deadline. I love seeing my loved ones faces! This is seriously my favorite app! Plus it helps force me to get out of my comfort zone with my self love or lack there of. I have to look at my face every time I record for my loved ones. I work on being nice to myself instead of picking myself apart.
Keeping in touch with overseas family
by Textralian on 2019/12/04 17:54
When your loved ones are in Australia and the time difference is 15-17 hours, depending on the time of year, Marco Polo is great! I don’t awaken them with news anymore, they can get up in the morning and find my message on MP. Thank you for an app that keeps me in the loop with faraway family! 🙏👌👍
I love Marco Polo!
by Maffycakes on 2019/12/04 17:30
Yes, I do because my 32 year old single daughter who lives far from me and I are more connected than before. Yay! Thank you!
Very handy
by jamyprealty on 2019/12/04 17:30
Works great. Easier to use than text and group Marcos are always fun!
Wish I could use it
by Squid!!!!!! on 2019/12/04 10:08
I am overseas with the military and it won’t let me start a profile without a phone number seems like it would be great to talk to my wife. If there is a way to send verification code to my email rather than just my phone number (that doesn’t work where I am) that would be ideal.
Great app

In a busy world, Marco Polo is a great way to keep in touch, with friends and family. Love it Brandon Boyd
Works great for people with different schedules
by schatzsm on 2019/12/03 08:48
I love to talk to my sister on the phone but our schedules are often different. This app allows me send her a video message at 2am as I’m sitting on my couch as I’m drinking my coffee. When she wakes up I'm already at work so she can reply at her convenience and I can watch it and respond at mine. You can also go back and watch previously sent and received messages. Of course we still talk on the phone weekly, but this is a great way to share something with someone without waking them up in the minor the night. It’s very cool.
Get this app
by •••••••••••••••••! on 2019/12/03 04:00
If you don’t answer your text messages like I do then you should totally get this app it’s like a text but with video.
Love this app!
by Karrrrrita on 2019/12/03 01:25
Marco Polo allows me to stay in contact with friends all over the world! It’s fantastic!
Super neat messaging App!
by KelRivera on 2019/12/02 22:03
I like how simple and easy it is to send a quick video message to my friends and family. It’s also handy when you need fashion advice from a friend and need to see their closet! 😂

Addicting!
by pmarchele on 2019/12/02 18:27
I was sure I would not use this. I knew I’d have to do my hair and look at least somewhat decent in order to do this. But once I got comfortable with videoing, I sent invites to all my friends and immediately started talking and I loved it!

Thank you so much for making this app! You know now I can see my friend who I haven’t seen in years. We were so close to living with them forever! (Not) but then we had to leave after a month of living with them. Know I can here her beautiful voice 😁+😭= crying of happiness.
Great way to communicate
by Maestra G on 2019/12/01 18:02
I use this for both personal and professional groups! It’s a great way to communicate when you know all parties can’t be present to communicate one on one!
Volume problems
by rhill2020 on 2019/12/01 05:02
I love this app. But it seems incompatible with my phone suddenly. It gets very loud then soft then loud then soft like it’s a mic problem. But my mic works With everything else.

My God daughter knows my face thanks to Marco and she can recognize my voice. It’s more conviene than face time because you don’t have to stop what you are doing an answer. I love it
Emojis in the way
by Snowy roads on 2019/11/30 00:14
I’d given MP a higher rating if I could get rid of the emojis that block the right side of the screen 😠
Good app
by boo-boo Stuart on 2019/11/29 22:04
I love this app it is a really good to communicate with family members and who are in the army or live far away. I use this app a lot to Communicate with my aunt who lives in Harrisburg,Pennsylvania. And I have a daughter that’s in College in Youngstown,Ohio. And I use this app you should consider using this app to Connect to love ones.
Best App to keep in touch with friends!
by Shannon12583 on 2019/11/29 16:25
Marco Polo App is everything! I’d officially be lost without it. It has changed the way I communicate with friends and changed friendships- bringing me closer with people than I have been in years. It’s the perfect way to communicate with people in other time zones. I look forward to watching messages and feel like I’m spending time with friends who live all over the country. It it’s changed my life by making it so much fuller. Thank you Marco Polo!
Wish it worked
by catsaredebomb on 2019/11/29 15:20
I downloaded this because a lot of people I know have it but! I have an iPad so it does not work! I was really excited too use you app but I can’t because you have to have a phone number
East way to keep in touch
by Barb MG on 2019/11/29 05:36
Marco Polo is such a fun and easy way to keep in touch. You can send a visual message at your convenience and the recipient(s) can retrieve it at their convenience.
Good way to keep in touch
by Marsheezy on 2019/11/29 01:57
I like this app to join groups or just speak with someone one on one.
Ugh!!
by COOL GURL101 on 2019/11/28 21:18
So I got this app in December of 2018 and it was amazing! BUT THEN all of my videos started to go away then my friends and family’s videos went away now I can’t find them SUPER ANNOYING! Please fix this ASAP! Sincerely, App user
Wonkie
by 1CaliFunGirl on 2019/11/28 20:11
I’ve been using this app for over a year and used to love it. But since July it has become wonkie. By wonkie, I mean, EVERYTIME I’m watching a marco, I have to fight the “blackout” or “timeout” that happens with the marco. No, this is not a “caching” issue. It’s literally my screen blacks out, and most the time the sound goes very low to silent forcing me to touch my screen or close the app and reopen it. When it first started, we were told to “delete and re-install the app”. Or “it’s only an iPhone issue”. Well that’s not the fix!!! It’s an issue on all platforms!! It’s actually a problem with the app itself!!! Please stop adding other features and focus on this issue so we can enjoy the app. FIX THIS ISSUE PLEASE!!!
Sound is altered
by Robengers on 2019/11/28 01:55
The sound is altered to make it easier to hear but is very annoying. I hope the developers can fix this.
I love Marco Polo!!!
by AwkwardlyInappropriate on 2019/11/28 00:04
I never get to see my best friend, because she moved to another state, but with Marco Polo we now talk multiple times a day! It is awesome!

Marco Polo is a great app I love it because it is fast and easy all my family lives far away from me and my family so I can communicate with them it is much easier then texting and FaceTime me and my friends have a Group chat so whenever we miss each other we talk on Marco Polo you should really get it and this is a kid talking the app is great you can use it whenever and wherever you are I think it is the best app ever
So great for keeping in touch!
by Rainey20132013 on 2019/11/27 14:30
My circle of friends and I recently discovered this app. And we absolutely love it. It’s so much more personal than texting back-and-forth. Getting to see everybody’s faces on a regular basis and hear their voices is just awesome! Definitely going to spread the word and invite more people to join in.
Literally the best video messaging app!!!
by Kingofmemes7895 on 2019/11/27 05:23
I started talking to a girl in Michigan and with the 3 hour time difference (from CA) our schedules are sometimes not in sync, and at the same time we both work so we’re not always available to have a long FaceTime call during the day (we save those for the night when the day is said and done). She then found this app and mentioned it to me so we can try it out and see how it works. Now, it’s helpful to have this app because it lets us send sweet heartfelt videos of each other as we progress throughout our days and it’s really brought us closer in our long distance relationship. One of the most central apps in our lives and I couldn’t be more thankful to have this app available! Plus the beach ball logo is really cute lol.
I see you!
by apteacher on 2019/11/26 21:53
What a great way to see and visit friends, on your own time. Busy? No problem! Leave a message and they can enjoy it when they can. Highly recommend if you have family out of town to stay in touch.
My fav app to keep up with friends
by ryanbigdickenergy on 2019/11/26 21:17
Only improvements I would have is for the quality to stay the same as it was when you recorded it. Also I’d like to be able to view videos sent in full screen with the reaction bar either able to hide or if you click the screen it’ll still pop up while your watching in full screen. Thanks again for a great app!
So fun!
by Valleys ticks on 2019/11/26 19:02
So much fun to “talk”with friends who live across the country and I could never find time to call because of the time difference. This is an amazing way to hear their voice and communicate during the day that’s best for me and for them. Ingenious!
Great app
by MRSREADY84 on 2019/11/26 18:15
I gave it three stars because it is a great app for communicating and I like the purpose of it just the screen is pixelated I do have a nicer just a bit delayed.

by Maximum3020 on 2019/11/26 00:03
Great app, use it all the time, only thing I really would say, is that for all those people who are using dark mode on iPhone, it would be great if this app utilized that feature.

Great app - Would love more security
by ELarrabee on 2019/11/25 16:18
This app has allowed me to stay close to friends from out of state. I love it! I wish the developers would add a numeric passcode so that videos could stay confidential. Maybe something to consider?
❤️Marco PoYO!❤️
by sndwkjsbsksh on 2019/11/25 02:39
Marco Polo is a great app. It’s like Snapchat and FaceTime or WhatsApp or whatever. If you are trying to tell someone something but they can’t talk at that moment, and you don’t have time to tell them another time you can use Marco Polo! You can just use Marco Polo and tell them, then later they can get back at you. It’s absolutely amazing! Yep, yes, mhmm, this gets FIVE STARS!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Awesome

Best. App. Ever.

Cannot day enough good!
by Ps119LovetheWord on 2019/11/24 06:08
When I was moving across the country two or three of my friends told me I needed this app. I’ve been using it for over a year now and LOVE IT! Even to just communicate with people locally, it’s way more fun than a voice message, and I feel so much more connected to my friends who live far away. The features are great, gotta love the filters and voices, and it’s super intuitive to use. 5 stars!!!!!!!
Wonderful to feel close!
by Skylark CA on 2019/11/24 02:53
Amazing to be able to see loved ones across the country and share little moments of everyday life. It makes everyone feel close. Love it!

I love this app because I’m able to use it to get great coupons deals in my coupon group and replay them!
Best messaging app ever!!
by Three fluffs on 2019/03/08 17:17
My three siblings are all over the country so we don't see each other often. And we're all busy so even talking on the phone regularly is a challenge. But with Marco Polo we talk several times a day and now feel so much more connected and closer than ever! It's as if we were living near one another and having coffee daily. We all treasure this app more than you can imagine. We created a channel for talking to my nephew who is in the Air Force across the country and he really appreciates the opportunity to hear our words of support and encouragement. We have another channel with all the nieces and nephews, allowing us to become so much closer. And we have a channel with our cousins in Italy whom we have never met in person, and that has been really awesome!! This app is do much better than Snapchat or Instagram or FB. My only complaint is that as of the last update it is behaving oddly. If I hit the x to exit from a Polo I'm watching so I can jump ahead and record one, it just freezes the screen on the Polo I was watching while the audio keeps playing and I have to force close the app and maybe I can stop the Polo that's playing so I can jump ahead. This happens every time I try to jump ahead to record when I'm listening to a Polo. It didn't used to do that. iPhone XS Max with the latest iOS. Otherwise we all love it.
Love Marco Polo
by Viki4910 on 2019/02/03 23:45
My niece asked me to join Marco Polo and I was hesitant at first even though it was free. But what I have come to really love besides the fact that it puts us in contact with each other, is the convenience of Marco Polo. I can talk to anyone in the middle the night when I can’t sleep; I can talk in the early hours of the morning before my day gets started; likewise, I can listen to what they sent to me at My convenience regardless of the time of day or night. You can choose to save your conversations or you can erase them when you’re done with them. For years are used to write letters that took a long amount of time not to mention pains of the all hands; then I sent tape cassettes back-and-forth to people over the states to stay closer; and texting also takes a lot of time! But with Marco Polo, you can talk as much or as little as you want to but the most important part is you can talk whenever it is convenient for you to talk. It doesn’t matter at all whether the person you’re talking to is awake or not because they’re not getting this Marco Polo when you’re making it. They listen to it whenever they have time and that might not be for a day or two or even a week. That’s the beauty of Marco Polo. Marco Polo has put me in touch with people that I otherwise was rarely ever in touch with. I absolutely love it and you will too!
Stay at Home Mom Approved!
by KAyHam12 on 2018/05/21 13:31
This app has helped this stay at home Mom keep her sanity! It allows me to talk to friends off and on all day so I don’t just feel stuck at home alone. I LOVE being a SAHM but it can get lonely. So it is so nice to be able to talk to someone basically face to face throughout my day. My sister and I live only a few miles a part and yet we’d go weeks without talking to each other bc we were both too busy with our kids. This app has helped us communicate more than we have in years! And it’s so much better than just getting texts or Snapchat. I hate texting now! I’d much rather send someone a Marco Polo bc it’s so much easier and faster, and I can tell them exactly what I want on my own time. I love that we can have a conversation with each other whenever each of us has a chance. Our free time for a conversation doesn’t have to be at the exact time anymore! This app is amazing. My whole family uses it now, and we share a lot through a group chat. It has helped bring our entire family closer. And it’s so much more personal than Snapchat. On Snapchat I’d only send quick little funny messages to friends or a cute video. But this is more for real conversations. And I love that it’s hands free so I can talk to friends while folding laundry!
What The Change?!
by Srp64209 on 2018/09/19 02:01
Ok so I have a few friends that have this app and we all use it ALL DAY EVERY DAY!! I hate/despise Snapchat! This app is easy to use and understand!! The ONLY reason I gave it 4 stars is because things like this... and I wish I could add pictures to this review to help illustrate the point I’m trying to make. Used the app this morning and it was the same setup as every other day, midway through the day it updated, or so I thought. The ‘emoji icons’ that where at the bottom of the screen where now on the right side of the screen making it easier to not press one by mistake. There where a couple of other small changes but I don’t remember what they where at the moment because it switches back to how it used to be, hence the ‘reverse updating’ I’m mildly confused/complaining about. I even went through and did a proper update to see if I could get to the ‘new’ changes, nothing. Power cycled my fone, still nothing. Checked for any ‘missing’ updates, none to be found... I really liked the new look and was very pleased with how you ‘cleaned up’ the screen area. Either plz fix it to how it was around 2pm cst or just fix the screen clutter!! Nothing like going to press START and being a 1/10sec to slow and ‘loving’ a message of ‘oh, my moms cat died today...’ OTHERWISE... This is actually a really good app overall. Again my friends, all in other states, use it DAILY!!
Deeper friendships
by AshleeO on 2019/02/21 03:28
I heard about this app and decided to download it and invite the women from my weekly church small group to join. We began a group chat that just has not stopped or slowed down one bit! I didn’t think it would be such a hit or so well used, but everyone loves it. We check in with each other nearly every day. Sometimes for small, funny moments. Sometimes for deeper, longer or more serious reasons. But the overall effect has been a much greater connection than we’ve ever had- and our group has been together for about seven years! There is just something so much more intimate and connective about seeing each other (seeing people in their environment, hearing their inflections and watching them process through thoughts vs. a well composed or edited text message). Compared to texting, which was our most used form of communication before, this goes way beyond. With busy days and conflicting schedules (and boisterous children), it’s almost impossible to have any kind of regular phone conversation. This app makes it feel as though you’re entering the other person’a day and they are a part of yours in a much more fun and dynamic way. I wish we would’ve discovered this sooner!
Almost Perfect
by Piragypt on 2019/07/06 19:11
I absolutely love this app! I use it quite often and it comes in handy when I can’t text or want to pair visuals with the message. I feel like this app could be the next platform to blow up, but there is one major problem: On my device, about half the times I try to use Marco Polo, a huge glitch comes up. When I click on a video to watch, it will work for about 1-2 seconds then the screen goes black. The audio still plays but the screen stays black. If I tap the screen nothing changes, but if I press the home button, the video will work for a couple seconds before going black again. Even pressing the power button doesn’t work. The only way I can shut down the app is either waiting for it to crash, or pressing the home button multiple times until the home screen finally appears. I have tried to reinstall the app in case there was a patch or the glitch was a one-off thing on my phone but the issue continued. This is a huge issue that would deter people from using the app. It seems like the customer service here is great so I hope the glitch is taken care of soon if it’s affecting others as well. I have an iPhone by the way, in case that makes a difference. Many thanks for reading my complaint, and good luck with your business. 🙂
Marco Polo even for the old, but young at heart!!
by jpapie on 2019/10/25 20:33
I recently turned 50 and have been using Marco Polo to connect with some other old friends from high school and college. I have never left a review for an app before, but I decided to today because I just left a video for my friends and I realized how long it would have taken me to write it in a text or a phone call to all in the group. You get it all done at one time. You don’t feel like you are getting them at a bad time and they are being polite talking to you. I do not really like FaceTiming not sure I guess it’s that I feel like your still could be interrupting them but now you can see it in their face. With Marco Polo you just send and answer on your time. You still get the facial reaction to what you had to tell them and again it is so much faster than texting and you can get across what you want to say by your facial expression. Oh did I mention it’s easy!!! Anyone should be able to use it young and old, personal or work related. Just try it out. There are fun things you can add and funny voices and if you want you can also respond back by text!! Enjoy have a fantastic day!!
L❤️VE THIS APP
by neversitsstill on 2018/01/08 06:36
I like the app because it allows users to send and receive videos when it’s convenient. It’s hard to FaceTime when people have different schedules and live in different time zones. Besides, I love getting video messages over text messages because I can tune into the persons mood, I love to see their face, it just makes me feel like I’m closer and it’s made all the difference! I have friends who have use this and loved it with their grandchildren! I personally started using it when I was homebound for an extended period of time due to illness and getting video messages from friends was always a highlight! My only suggestion (and reason I gave it four stars instead of five) would be to not make people wait for some of the “bells and whistle’s”. Sometimes it’s the little things make the app much more interactive and fun. Why not give those to everyone so they have a full experience from the beginning? At the time I’m writing this you have to have been a user for 30 days AND have sent at least 50 video messages. I don’t think people view getting to use emojis while watching live as an incentive to keep using it as much as they might see it as a reason to quit using it. The more interactive the two parties can be the better. Otherwise great app.
Great app, but has some flaws...
by Cassaunova on 2018/04/10 11:38
I have loved this app since the moment I downloaded it. Everyone I’ve introduced it to has also loved it. It’s a great way to keep in touch, and it can easily fit into the busiest schedules because the videos can be watched any time. One of the greatest features of Marco Polo is being able to see that your friend(s) is/are watching your live video. In the last month or so, this feature has been extremely inconsistent. It will not show that my friends are present in the conversation, and vise versa, it does not show them that I am active. This is the same with the emojis. Even when a user is active and present in the conversation, the other users can not see any emojis that are being sent. It seems the only way to correct this issue is to force close the app and reboot it. My friends and I have to do this several times each day we use the app. Super frustrating! I still love the app, but I do wish they would correct this issue. Also, adding the ability to send chats while a friend is talking would be super helpful! Similar to Facebook/Instagram/YouTube live, how the users can send comments that the person streaming live can view during the video. Also, MORE EMOJIS!!
Love love love
by fizzypop80 on 2019/10/25 18:45
I love love love Marco Polo. I was introduced to it my my mentor initially who was using it to have group chats with her students. At the time I had just moved halfway across the country with my family and knew no one in my new city. I felt so isolated and disconnected. So I started introducing MP to my friends and now I feel more intimately connected with them than ever before. I have my work from home moms from before that I connect with, my best friends and even friends that I only used to get to chat with once every few months bc of time zones and busy lifestyles. We’ve all grown much closer and I’m so thankful for this app. I have even had weekly (or more) chats with my cousin all the way in Australia - that was always a hard one to maintain bc were on opposites sides of the world and our times hardly ever matched. My kids get to chat and connect with their cousins in Australia and also our friends from our home city. One tiny thing I’d love (just updated the app so maybe it’s already happened) is for MP to render color better when in brighter light so I don’t look like a ghost haha! Other than that please don’t mess with the app too much!
Marco Polo is the best way to connect digitally
by EveFanForLife831 on 2018/09/17 20:17
This app has helped me stay in contact with my family(there are 9 of us and we are all very close but live in different cities), I can see them anytime I want and let them in on what’s going on with my life and also have incredibly deep and meaningful conversations with my FRIENDS!! This app is THE APP for all of my introverted/social anxiety ridden/recluse babies too- girl, you can STAY CONNECTED and participate in ALL of your friends lives with the click of a “start” button! You can stay involved and get back to their videos whenever is convenient! Seriously, if you have a hard time getting out or can’t always participate in stuff with your extroverts(cause let’s be honest extroverts always latch on to introverts and that’s how we socialize😂). But this app has been a HUGE game-changer for my introverted friends who never go out with me!! Now we have great conversations(some serious, some fun, some silly), and I get to see their faces everyday if I want to! It’s a great way to remain connected without having to over exert yourself by going out all the time💓
Needs more privacy and easier delete function
by Userlune on 2018/06/21 22:27
First of all, thanks for a free app with a fun concept. That said, I really wish there were a feature to select and delete multiple chats at a time. I didn’t know when I gave the app access to my contacts that it would automatically spam my page with everyone in my phone on the app (including a few I don’t even recognize). I use the app for family and a few close friends only, so I don’t like being spammed with people I didn’t choose. And I don’t want all those people to be able to send me messages. Not everyone in your phone is someone you want to see that much! Please, developers, at least make it optional to automatically upload all your phone contacts who use the app OR part of them (manually). All this, and the fact that it took a while to delete each person from my main page or feed, or group of tiles (whatever it’s called) made me consider deleting the app. I still may if it continues to be a problem. Like I said, it’s a fun concept, but I don’t like the clutter and lack of privacy options. Any plans to work on that? Maybe take a page from the Instagram interface where you choose whom you want to follow/see?
This app saved my relationship
by Vee1317 on 2019/03/18 15:53
If my boyfriend and I didn’t have this app during our long distance relationship for a year, I’m not sure if we would’ve lasted. Because of the huge time difference and we both were so busy, we couldn’t always text or FaceTime. But Marco Polo, we were able to leave video messages to each other. No pressure to respond or feeling bad that we missed a FaceTime call. We simply just responded whenever we were able to. I would be a spokesperson for them honestly because this app is amazing. I use it to talk to my family living in different places as well! Also, my family was able to keep in contact with my boyfriend while he was away. He was able to keep in contact with his family. It’s just amazing! That’s why I gave it 5 stars, sometimes the app does have its issues but honestly it’s just like any other app with issues. It’s an app! It’s not perfect. Even IG and FB has its moments. You can save videos you made and send them. Have group chats. Sorry for the long review but I just love this app!
Love it, but having minor issues
by cathrynlouise on 2018/10/30 14:34
I have really been loving this app. I’ve been using it with my best friends that live all over the world for about a year and a half now, and we’ve actually grown way closer because of it. It helps to keep us updated on each other’s lives without having to worry about planning times to catch up. Since we’re in multiple different time zones, this has helped us out so much! That being said, the ONLY complaint I have is what happened after the most recent update. My cousin and I use this as our main source of communication because of our busy schedules, but recently, the videos just started getting cut off. Normally I get a notification when the connection is bad and then the full video sends later (when it reconnects). Now, the videos just completely stop and I miss out on a vast majority of the full video. We have almost completely stopped using the app because having to come back on and repeat everything has been a really big inconvenience. Before that happened, I had absolutely no complaints about the app! If this gets fixed, I’ll be back up to 5 stars 👍🏼
NEEDED key feature
by WalkingTrees824 on 2019/05/09 12:17
this app is great as a walkie talkie app with friends and family. And I love the idea of the 2x speed option especially when I’m far behind in my polos. HOWEVER... PLEASE add the ability to have the speed be 1.25, 1.5, and 1.75x. To me 2x is typically too fast to understand people when they’re talking. UI wise, just make it a long press to change up the speed settings and have it stay at the user preferred rate. This shouldn’t be too much of a change on the dev side so please add this much needed feature! And once you do, I’ll add a star back. As always with my reviews, I’m skeptical of privacy with free apps that want me to sign up with an account. Your privacy outline is also pretty vague with who you CAN give my info to so for that reason, I’ve taken another star off. Pretty sure you’re not going to change that but privacy is becoming a bigger and bigger issue these days and I feel companies need to do a better job of being transparent of their intentions with our info and ensuring they’re not giving it to random companies that us as the consumers aren’t aware of. Bottom line. Please just add the speed feature and I’ll update my review! Thanks!
So blessed to have Marco Polo
by CaramelAndChameleons on 2019/10/30 13:41
Thank you so much for creating this app. I adore it! I love being able to keep in contact this way, and especially that it’s unlimited and you can save them! When I moved halfway across the country it was a way to interact with family and friends left behind. When I started dating it was a way to share the details of our hearts, minds, and days on a personal level and now I can look back over our journey through Marco Polo and remember!!! Also, I have a couple of questions/suggestions: could you make it available to access your videos and create them online as well? Like from your website? I would also love to be able to download the videos from months ago to my device/computer so that I can save them to a disc as well, but the problem is that I can’t download many past Marco Polos because I have so many with my fiancé that I have to go to “see all” and when I tap on a video it will play and pause, but there are no other options. Could that be updated, please?! Thank you!!
Love it! Can I make a suggestion!?
by Stefunny0609 on 2019/10/15 04:53
Loving the app and staying in touch with friends! I wanted to make a suggestion regarding time and timers. 1) the time display disappears while you are watching a video .. I love to watch when I can with a busy mom life.. that includes knowing what time it is .. I have to stop the video to check the time.. not a big deal but would be helpful! Which brings me to 2) Can we add a timer on the video.. like when you see the video, maybe include the time length of the video on the bottom right corner or something? Would be super helpful! Sometimes I don’t watch a video thinking I won’t have time to get thru it.. I play it and it’s over in 30 seconds haha or you listen to a video have to pause and go back to it often cause you don’t realize it’s 45 minutes long.. be helpful to know how long the videos are or even a timer for when you are recording a message so you can check yourself to! Obviously the app is amazing without these suggestions, but just wanted to throw that out there :)
Love this!
by juneburgs on 2017/09/19 03:13
I love almost everything about this app! It's like having a FaceTime conversation, where everyone in the thread can respond when they have time instead of immediately. Way simpler than just sending video messages back and forth. I like that the videos can last as long as you want and that they don't disappear after watching, unlike Snapchat. One improvement would be the ability to share videos that you previously filmed on your phones camera to your group. I shared this idea with the app support team, and they quickly followed up with me for more information about my idea. I was really impressed by the team behind the app! I'm hoping that is a feature included in future updates. Another improvement is that sometimes after watching a video in fast forward, after I try to resume regular speed, the picture and audio don't match up. Not the end of the world, just annoying. Otherwise love the app and love using it every day!
love this app
by Grayce K on 2017/09/30 17:07
it's perfect for me to communicate voice messages to my friends and family. Whether we are on a different time schedule for work or school or for example in a different state/ time zone or country/ on vacation and when you have something to say on the go and they can't talk and it's just too long to type. plus I love that it does save the conversation as some friends have written this app off as (well it's like snapchat) but really no I use mine to document my day not talk to my friends. This is more of the old school Facebook that use to let you record videos on your friends walls (don't know why they ever took that away) if you were a college student when it first came out reading this then I'm sure you know what I mean! I did however give this only 3 stars because this would be great since it is used with your phone number integrated into my regular messages where I text instead of having another notification and another app to have to open. I think that's where the app could advance into something bigger and better. Other than that thank you and this app is a great tool I use it daily!
Forced list view
by Kenna Turner on 2018/09/30 19:30
At first, I LOVED this app. My family and friends all use it and it’s been our main form of communication for months now. However, about a week ago, every time I launch the app, I’m forced to use list view vs tile view. I hate list view. It’s ugly, outdated, and less efficient. I used to be able to choose between list view or tile view, I always chose tile view because I’d rather see a bunch of large thumbnails than have to read the stupid group titles or names. I am the ONLY one out of ALL of my contacts that no longer has this option! I contacted App Support to get them to switch mine back, they just sent me a few generalized and impersonal emails telling me they appreciated my feedback and stating this is a test run. I didn’t sign up for this. I am very upset. I deleted the app and redownloaded it to see if that would fix the issue, it did. For 24 short hours. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. I was literally IN the app, USING Marco Polo when all of a sudden it switched to list view! If this issue isn’t fixed, I’d strongly suggest you make sure you’re okay with having an outdated look that can only fit 6 chats on a screen (vs the 9 you can fit on a screen in tile view.)
This App has changed my life
by Blargle12 on 2018/11/27 07:29
My family and friends are scattered all over the world and I’m pretty much alone in my city so being able to talk to them with this app has been an incredible lifesaver. I honestly don’t know how I would have made it the last few months without this because I can keep in touch with my family and friends in a way that makes it possible for us to go about our lives without needing to schedule specific times to call or FaceTime. The fact that one of us is in Florida, another in Texas, one in California and I’m in Oregon, but we all communicate constantly through the time differences is amazing. Before this app we were drifting apart due to the distance and lack of contact but now we “see” each other at least every other day and keep up with each other’s lives. Thank you so much for this!!! I can’t express how much I love having this tool to stay in touch. Now if only my best friend would actually watch the polos I’ve sent him....
Volley-call !!!!
by mimisgame on 2017/11/02 22:34
I am a fast typist/avid texter and normally would rather text than do phone calls. But this app is a fabulous mixture of both. One reason I hate phone calls is that I have to think about what I need to say and I feel rushed or flustered in a phone conversation. Texting let’s me edit, or think about what I want to say but takes a while for me to text it all out. But now there’s Marco Polo!!!! At first I didn’t like it. When a person has recorded their little “talk” and you are listening, you respond while they are talking but they don’t hear it. Felt a little cut off. But then, as I volleyed a few times I began to feel the beauty of this. It gives the benefit of time to the messenger (like texting does) but you also get the benefit of voice, tone and facial expression. It’s the best parts of texting and phone conversations mixed. Now I love it more than texting and certainly WAY more than phone calls. Marco eliminates oodles of time I spend texting. Love this app. 😉
Mature Snapchat
by JemChaucer on 2019/06/26 12:41
My daughter calls Marco Polo the “ old person’s” snapchat...🤣 that can’t be right of course because I’m 52 and NOT old. I was hesitant to add one more “social media” into my life other than literally getting out and socializing … but am so grateful I did. It has enabled me to regain REAL and close relationships with old friends and family who live far enough away that we have missed out on all those little ,everyday moments that you don’t remember on those “few times a year” phone calls. I can Marco Polo my best friend and /or sisters who live across the country and make it as long or as short as I want, and then enjoy their company (response) where and whenever is convenient for me . It’s almost like sitting across from them for lunch or coffee. I would definitely recommend Marco Polo for anyone “mature “ enough to enjoy real connections... and really anyone! Wish I had it when my kids were little for grandparents and their Dad when he traveled for business. LOVE IT!
Worth getting, but could be better.
by Guitar Popcorn on 2019/01/25 22:41
This app is pretty good. You can do all kinds of things in this app. There are voice changers, the ability to delete messages you already sent, and basic color filters. Why four stars? I feel like they can do more and make the app better. Snapchat filters are way better than Marco Polo filters. I don’t know what it is, but I feel something is missing. In addition, different devices work differently. My friend has a phone that can cover the camera with a giant emoji. My phone couldn’t do that. Over video chat, he tried to teach me how to do it. First, he tried showing me a reflection of his phone doing it, but he couldn’t get it to the right angle. So he decided to show me him doing it on another phone. The other device could not do it. That’s when we realized that it doesn’t work on all devices. I don’t know why different devices do different things. However, for the most part, Marco Polo is a good app worth getting. Sorry for the ridiculously long review. Enjoy your day! (And Marco Polo!)
My favorite app
by Christmassoup on 2018/07/22 18:37
I don’t know how I could manage without Marco Polo. For me it’s like when you didn’t have a cell phone and got along ok but once you got your cell phone you really can’t imagine how you’d get along without it. MP has become my main means of communication with family who are 3 time zones apart. Everyone can do it at their convenience. The small children enjoy drawing and writing on it and the older kids and adults can talk as long as they want to without having to worry about whether a file is too large to upload. Not only is it great for communicating with far away friends and family (it works internationally too as long as there’s cell phone service) but I also have found that I have kept in closer contact with good friends and the depth and detail of our conversations can be so much greater than it is via text. And so much faster. And of course you can do group conversations. I absolutely love this app!! HC Atlanta GA
Love it...when it works
by Percival George on 2018/08/02 15:19
This app is everything it’s promised to be! I adore using it. It really does help sustain your relationships with long-distance friends, or even next-door neighbors when you’re too lazy to actually hang out. 😂 It’s got the best features of FaceTime and texting combined into one awesome app. Recently, however, it’s been pretty glitchy on my phone. Sometimes, I’ll open it and it’ll be frozen. I’ll have to exit out and then go back into it. And I could absolutely live with that (the same thing’s happened to other apps on my phone, so that could just be my phone), but there’s more. When I tried to look at my new polos this morning, the videos were interspersed with just total screen blackouts. The audio continued, but the screen switched unreliably from the actual video to black. None of the other apps on my phone have ever done that. I’ll restart my phone and see what happens...but I’m so attached to some of the old videos on here that I don’t want to try re-installing the app yet. :) Overall, Marco Polo is amazing! I don’t know anyone else with the blackout problem, so it could just be my phone...but if it’s a Marco Polo issue, I’d like to see that fixed.
Great communication For Busy Prople
by gowriter98 on 2018/08/13 23:02
Sometimes you’re so busy you don’t have time to do real-time chat. So this serves as a great tool for video communication, kind of like a video email. Saves you typing. If you have arthritis this is a great way to chat with friends. You just talk. You get to see a face, see expressions, see smiles and laughs. Not just words where you can misinterpret the message. But you’re also mindful of other people’s time. If they don’t have time to real-time chat, they can always get back to you, and you can view the whole message before responding and no one’s interrupting each other. So it’s almost like a virtual conversation. I think these days we don’t have enough face to face conversation and that can affect your ability to socialize and relate to others. Plus the conversation is private between you and another. Nothing beats talking to your friend face to face in real life, but this is pretty close.
Great way to stay in touch!

My wife changed the way the Smith family communicates with this app! We are missionaries in Lithuania and love that we are only a video message away from our loved ones in the States!! The app is great for many reasons, but one of my favorite ones is because it doesn’t store the video on your phone, therefore saving space on your device. It is also super easy to use! My mom might be what you’d call technologically-challenged, but she can use it no problem. We bought her an iPod, installed Marco Polo, taught her how to use it, and after about a year she has transitioned into a smart phone because of using this app! I also love the group messaging! I have a few groups that can easily keep in touch with, and not just keep in touch with, but SEE them!! We enjoy seeing our friends and family, and like the fact that we don't have to wait for the stars to align perfectly so our schedules match up to be able to see one another. There is one thing that I would change though. We got Marco Polo before we moved here from the States, so we were already connected with all of our family and friends on our app. We had to get new phone numbers after we moved here, but we cannot change, nor add a new phone number to my Marco Polo profile, making it harder for people to find me. All around, this is an outstanding app!
Won't work
by kdomm on 2017/10/24 20:32
My friends and I have used this app daily and I have loved it up until now. Out of nowhere it started to tell me to enable the microphone in my settings so that friends could hear me. It won't let me open up my friends messages until I do so. It worked just fine a day or 2 before that, which is the confusing part. There were no updates on my phone to change anything. So I went into settings, but there is nothing there to allow or enable in the microphone settings. It just says "applications that have requested access to the microphone will appear here. Well, there is nothing there! It's really frustrating! I contacted Apple and they tried to help me with the situation, but in the end it seems to be on the app developer's end. I'm so frustrated. I want to hear what my friends have to say. This is how I keep in contact with a few girls that live far away and family members. I have contacted the app developer and have not heard back yet. Hopefully they will contact me soon to fix this problem.
Love this app

This app has changed the game for me and my closest friends. For years we have been separated by continents and variation of social media usage. As a result, it has been so hard to stay in touch. In January 2018, we started using Marco Polo. Now we communicate daily and can listen and record when convenient. We feel like kids again with the ability to share the big and small parts of each day with each other. Thankfully, we are back on the same continent and are planning our second trip together this year with the help of this app. I love the emojis and ability to write notes. I removed a star because I wish there was a way to tell how long the messages are as I am recording or listening. I also wish there were more variations on emojis. Additionally, when I started using the app, some features only became available after a certain amount of uses. Not a fan of “earning” features. Overall, this is one of my favorite apps to use
Best app ever!!!
by SaraEwifemomtechteacher on 2019/07/01 01:25
I love Marco Polo! It has helped me is to stay in touch with family and Friends both fire in the year. I love the convenience of not having to both be available for a live video chat and having great quality Do you still be able to Communicate. My two-year-old and one-year-old boys have recognized easily their cousins and grandparents from out of state during the summer vacation thanks to your awesome app. Also, the person housesitting for us was able to show us what was happening with our fridge when it started having issues. I can’t say enough good things about it. My husband recently had to leave for vacation early due to his job and we are still able to see and talk to him even though we have a time difference. I admittedly rarely Take the time to give reviews but yours is worth the extra effort. I hope many other families are blessed as much as mine by your app. ❤️
Good stuff.
by Beat master beets on 2018/02/13 07:02
This sh%^t is A ok. Like it, except that the picture quality is not very endearing. I haven't seen a friend look good on these messages. Maybe it's because I'm now 45 but refuse to behave like one. And hence my looks are what they are. But I refuse to believe I have a double chin the size of that in these videos. I actually have a better angle if I hold it up, pointing down at me. I guess my baldHead is now my good side. Sad. But overall a great app. Definitely beats texting. Al least the worlds come out as intended, versus the simple Written word that can be taken differently than it was meant to. I always said this iPhone would cause a race war with its spell check that places words like "douche"or "kill your self" in places where you never intended them to be. With MarcoPolo the tone is apparent in someone's facial features and delivery. A great app. Download it and begin to use it. Peace in the middle East and Newark NJ. Yo!
Awesome and continually improving!
by RoxyRazor on 2018/05/30 01:25
I have really loved using this app for keeping in touch with my sweet cousin who lives in Texas, while I live in Georgia. However there are some functions I wish they would add. We tend to record lengthy videos, and I wish I could pause her videos and resume where I left off. It's annoying that if I need to pause to do something else, I then have to rewatch everything I've already seen. Also, sometimes the video and audio get out of sync. If I press the rewind five seconds button, it syncs back up. With these two tweaks, I could easily give this app five stars. UPDATE! I just learned you can use the slider at the bottom to quickly pick up where you left off, if you have to stop watching and come back to it. Life changer! Support is also SUPER responsive. I use this app daily to talk to my cousin so I really appreciate all the hard work! I still also have some sync problems but it doesn’t bother me as bad as it used to.
Love it only few wishes
by Maggiemaytn on 2018/04/30 19:57
This app is great if you have family or friends living out of state & want to send instant videos to them & get an Instant video back from them. Can use Just to chat or to send them something interesting funny creative or something crazy the kids are doing as it's happening. I do wish that the app would allow you to change the main picture in a group only on your end without the rest of the group picture being changed to what u choose also. And wish that it would let you review & give you an option on whether you want to send, edit, save or delete your video before sending it out because once you his "stop" it sends it & it's out there unless you can figure out how to delete it quick enough before any friends or family sees it. I do like the fact that you can choose who you want to be in your groups or you could send them in individual video if you'd rather only them see it.
Wow
by M_L_GROVE on 2018/05/26 07:16
I didn’t really expect something that’s so simple to so positively impact my day the way it has. If you’re tired of the baggage that comes with social media, like comparison temptation, superficiality, managing an online identity, think about taking a break and getting your family, real friends, or people you’d like to know better on Marco Polo. I downloaded Marco Polo after I had my first baby a few months ago. I was homebound tons, often in a chair nursing. I was able to vent, cry, laugh back and forth over Marco Polo. It has strengthens my relationships immensely. It’s so fun and way more effective than text messages. I would loooove a feature that allows us to save message streams as an entire whole. My hubs and I go back and forth during his weekday and in-between meetings and a crazy day he feels like he can see and know baby better, be in touch with what we’re up to. Thanks Marco Polo!
More than Apple Music....
by Sleeping duelist on 2018/11/01 00:49
So I’m not really into the social media scene but since this is the only way that my cousins and I can stay in touch this app has been used more that my Apple Music. Irk, “ this guy must be joking...” no dead serious. And we try and make so many videos for the ones that are slacking on the rebound to catch up. It’s holarious!!! We actually got up to 179 videos before anyone can see. So I do appreciate the work you guys put out. The only problem that I seem to be the only one having is that I can’t get my emojis to work. I can’t find them anywhere on the screen and was informed by my elder cousins that I can only do that during the viewing of someone else’s video and still I have nothing. Even though this is the only downfall I would still give this app a phat 5 starts. If you could toss in pic sharing that would be awesome. Please help. Thanks and God bless😁
Excellent communication tool
by Rogue for Christ on 2019/08/30 00:58
This is actually the FIRST time I’ve written a review for an app or anything for that matter. This little app is awesome, Marco Polo enables me to just talk, conversationally like I would face to face but even better because I really don’t like to be on the phone. It’s always been awkward for me. This way I get to fill my brother, Justin, in on what’s going on in my life, ask him what’s up with him and I don’t have to worry about it being just perfect. It isn’t “a post”, it’s a one on one comment or conversation with a close friend. So much easier and smooth than writing also. Marco Polo really is a great use of technology, and it hasn’t cost me a penny. I don’t have pop up adds coming across my phone from them, they’re not asking me to buy anything, it’s really as close to exactly what I want as anything COULD be. I’d recommend it to anybody and everybody!
Seems useful at first
by Zipzap74 on 2019/03/13 13:25
I like the thought of video chatting with my friends, but like many people there are quite a few old friends in my contacts that I would not like to speak too Willy nilly. This app is insistent about letting everyone else know when your on Marco Polo to the point that I don’t even want to open the app to respond to my mom. It pushes notifications about random people that are coming on constantly when all I want to know about is my select few that I care to talk too. Not to mention it’s also sent out spam messages to business partners and I believe that is unprofessional. If this is going to be the next text message let me keep my privacy. Many of my close friends feel the same way, along with posts on reddit. I’m starting to feel like negative reviews are swept under the rug on this app. If you don’t care about any of those things that I mentioned, the utility itself can be kind of cool, but nothing new really. Snapchat is pretty close to the same without yelling on the mountain tops to everyone that you’ve opened your app today and would like to chat.
Video Quality TERRIBLE
by Szabolcs7315 on 2019/04/18 15:38
So I get that the videos need to be lower quality so they’re easy to send and store online, but the quality of the camera and compression blows out people’s faces and makes everyone pale or yellow like they’re sick. (Side note The filters are absolute crap). I would love an option to create a group that has high quality settings on where the camera quality drastically improves and the files aren’t as compressed but the video history gets deleted after like 10 videos or something or they’re kept for 1 week and then deleted. Something, cause right now the quality of video is terrible. Also some decent filters would be nice. Update: April 18, 2019 Still no update to quality, which at this point I don’t even care about, a HUGE and easy improvement would be to have manual exposure control for the camera because the auto exposure constantly blows out peoples faces.
Request?
by Cortknie on 2018/11/12 14:02
Hello! I love the Marco Polo app so much! It’s helped me stay connected with my friends and family after moving states away! My 2 best friends and I have a group chat on there and at times we’ll leave each other long Polos to listen to! One question/request I would love to add is, would there ever be a feature where you can take notes while listening to a Polo? There have been so many times I have wanted to jot down notes or bullet points within the app while listening to my friends Polo so I know which topics to cover when I respond...I know it’s such a minor thing, but the nerd in me would love it if this was a possibility within the app! My friends also agreed! I’m not sure if this is even where to leave this request, but I promised them I would write in to ask! I’m sure other faithful Marco Polo users would love this feature as well! Thank you!!
I’m really digging this man
by im a nerd too on 2018/10/23 07:49
Well I think it was like last year sometime ago one of my younger in nephews had invited me to Marco Polo well beings that we had a pool in our backyard in the kids the grandkids got to grow up with that Becky teaching them to swim and such, I was sent a Marco Polo request from my nephew and I just seen it again today and it’s like by golly I’m going to update this app because this is a lot of fun and I got another invite from my sister-in-law and I am like really digging this I had a hard time figuring it out and I’m still having kind of a hard time you know like talking with somebody face-to-face or whatever but I think what it is is that we get to watch the other one while they’re alive or whatever? But it’s a lot of funAnd I like the fact that I could record something with no time limit and it get delivered I really like that
Love it
by Gl1tt3rK1tt3n on 2017/09/27 02:01
I love this app. I started using it a few days ago and I'm obsessed. I've always had a hard time keeping up with friends who move away and this is the answer to that problem. First, it's great to talk without being interrupted. Second, you're basically having a convo on your own time so you don't have to worry about do I have time for a phone call or face time? Third, it almost feels like recording a video diary so it's incredibly cathartic. I haven't had any issues or glitches. The one thing I was wishing I could do was erase a video once it gets started if I lose track of what I'm saying but reading the other reviews it sounds like you can do that... just have to figure it out. And one other thing is I wish it had better filters but not a big deal. Overall great app for keeping up with long distance friends!!
Critical
by Elyssia Browning on 2018/04/29 01:17
Hi Marco polo, my name is Elyssia Browning and my family and I are in a predicament. My sister is Karisa Clemens you might’ve heard about her story in the newspaper or in social media in general but she was in the horrific car accident on April 7th 2018, that killed her, her husband and her two-month-old baby leaving her four other children orphans. Her phone was destroyed and unfortunately my family and I are desperate to retrieve any of the Marco Polo’s that she sent to us. We can listen to them over and over again on our phones but there is no way to save them or to preserve them so her children can see them later on in life. And I really don’t want anything to happen to them or have them deleted because then we’ll basically lose her forever. If there is anyway Marco Polo can save them and send them to the family or allow us access to save them on our personal phones we would be so grateful. Please help us!
App constantly crashes
by CRCnTX on 2017/12/08 16:21
This app has never worked. It crashes within 3 seconds of launch even if I don’t click on anything. I’ve deleted and reinstalled and still it doesn’t work. They seem to have serious stability issues. When I contacted support they told me it was a problem for iPhone X users. I know at least 2 other iPhone X users that aren’t having any problems so I’m not buying that response. Guess they just didn’t want to invest time in trying to diagnose the problem. UPDATE: I was able to get past the issue cause my app to crash. Steps taken were to turn on airplane mode leaving all networks off (LTE and WiFi). Open Marco Polo and click into your feeds. You’ll see icons turning as the video segments try to load. Eventually they will time out. Close the app, turn off airplane mode and relaunch the app. All video segments reloaded themselves and played without issue. I notified support of this work around so hopefully the developers can improve client error handling to eliminate the issue.
Very Awesome!!!
by cjflowers on 2019/02/05 18:38
A friend recommended this app to me to communicate more freely with my grown kids and grandkids that live far away. It is not like FT in the fact that you can send live videos and the other party can either respond back immediately with their own live video or, if they are unavailable, they can respond when convenient and vice verse! I got to see my daughter AND Justin Timberlake when she was at his concert and we communicated back and forth during concert! It was like I was there!! I get to see my grandsons playing ball games and other activities while they are engaging in them and I can send them encouragement and praise in real time. I love the group option where I can communicate with the whole family at the same time. This app has made this lonely old lady feel like part of my family’s life while they are living it!!!
Great Way to Keep in Touch
by alliebraille on 2019/09/03 17:40
My friend convinced me to download this app when we both moved away from home. I was reluctant at first, but I am so glad I did. Marco Polo makes it easier for busy people to keep in touch with friends and family in a way that still feels conversational and more personal and meaningful than text. I love how convenient Marco Polo makes communicating as you don’t have to be available at the exact moment someone is talking to you and can open the message at a better time for you. This also makes sending messages easier because you don’t have to plan around the other person’s schedule or worry about interrupting their daily life. I definitely recommend Marco Polo to anyone who wants to maintain relationships and stay connected to people they might otherwise lose touch with over time.
Way of the future
by Braddock_MIA on 2017/10/13 14:33
This is basically the best of both worlds. It's like texting and FaceTime smashed together. Best part is that I'm not tempted to text while driving anymore. I got the phone up on my dash holder and "click" I'm recording. This has changed the way I keep in touch with friends. Only gripe I have, and it's a big one, is that they want you too upload your contacts SOOOOO badly. I can tell you how many people I've convinced to download Marco Polo that deleted it after they saw that it wanted them to upload their contacts around every corner. To the devs: I love your app and I appreciate it but man, I don't want to upload my contacts for crying out loud. I don't want the contractor I paid to fix my fence 4 years ago to receive a message saying "your friend Braddock just joined Marco Polo, say hi!" And I definitely don't want to receive a Marco Polo from him! Please stop pushing that. I'd rate 5 stars if it didn't do that with every attempt to reach out to someone.
Great App!
by Ssears123 on 2018/02/26 13:27
I love this app!!! My family is all over the place (different states) and everyone is on a different schedule so it is really nice to be able to communicate with them whenever they are available. We also use the app pretty much all day to send videos of our toddler to his grandparents and they love getting to see what he is doing all day. The only reason I gave the review four stars instead of five is because the video quality is starting to go downhill. I feel like when we first started using this app a year ago the picture was crisp (as if it were a video shot through the camera feature on your phone). Now the videos come through extremely blurry. It looks nice while recording, but once sent it looks like it was filmed using a camera phone from 2004. 😕 My request is to dedicate programming time to the quality of the videos being sent 👍🏼.
Making long distance shorter
by LittleLilah on 2019/03/11 00:46
I love this app! It has helped me reconnect with friends and stay in touch with family even though we are in different time zones and have such busy schedules. It’s SO nice to be able to watch the videos when I have time or be able to go back and watch videos again if there was something I missed, or something referenced again in a later conversation. I wish that there was a way to “bookmark” where I am in a received video so that if I need to pause it to respond to something, it can go back to the place where I pause it. Sometimes the current video you are watching will pick up where you left off, but sometimes it starts over or if you accidentally jump ahead to a more recent video, it loses your spot completely and it’s hard to remember which video you were watching. Also, lately, sometimes when I click the X when I’m watching a video, so I can respond, the screen goes black and I can still hear the video playing but I can’t see anything. I hope that bug fix is addressed in the next update. Overall I love this app and would definitely recommend it to family and friends, even if the scripted “tell your friend they have a video from you” message is so corny that a few of my friends thought they were being spammed or hacked.

No Bluetooth
by Nuckandcup on 2019/12/14 12:54
No Bluetooth.... unable to use HearMax Belton hearing aids through MP. Other than that it’s great.
Best video messaging app
by kassfass on 2019/12/13 20:54
This app is awesome! We use it everyday, but would REALLY LOVE for them to add filters like Snapchat has. That’s the only thing keeping me from rating it 5 stars.
The audio

When I do
The stinkin button!
by FieryToad27 on 2019/12/11 22:25
When ever I want to write something and type something and I don’t want to show the other person my face my thumb always accidentally clicks the start button and it records and I quickly have to stop recording before the other person sees it and it’s kinda embarrassing 😬🙈 could you move the button?
Marco Polo changed my life
by Cocomayree on 2019/12/11 12:52
I love this app. It keeps me in touch with far flung family members so much more regularly than phone calls and so much more deeply than texts. I feel like it has actually made my relationships stronger. The interface is really simple and easy to use. It is everything you need and nothing you don’t.
Marco Polo

Love this app. Have been having a lot of fun talking with family.
Keeping in touch
by Al la fd hi k kk fdz on 2019/12/10 19:53
When just a text won’t do it is so nice to see the faces of the ones you live as they deliver their message
Connects families❤️
by mcnair mommy on 2019/12/09 22:47
So great for helping you HANDS FREE keep connected with family and friends❤️
Love this app seriously! So much better than phone/texts.
by MeganXoxo:) on 2019/12/09 21:49
I hate talking on my phone and half the time I feel like I never have time to physically sit and text or send a message. I’m in love with how simple it is to talk to whoever, it’s like sending a voicemail and it’s really nice. I’ve been using it for the past two hours with one of my girlfriends, she’s showing me how to do makeup. It’s perfect cause it keeps the video so I can go back watch or pause it. Thanks for getting me back out there & socializing! Seriously was feeling alone all the time sitting at home after I had my youngest daughter, so I really do appreciate this app and how well it keeps me feeling a little normal. Haha 👍🏽
Marco polo cool
by daveqb-5 on 2019/12/09 14:29
It’s not a bad app I stay in the loop with a couple of my buddies And we just you know in touch Thru out the course of the day or whatever I don’t know what else is the come of it but for right now it’s cool I like it and I’m not really a social media type of person really not at all this is the first app I’ve joint and my brother Jacob introduce me to it it’s kind a cool.
Great
by ohmydabin on 2019/12/09 14:02
This is a good app for people who hate doing world wide call.
It’s great

Love the easy assess to the video chats and great quality
Love Marco Polo
by ms b 1 on 2019/12/09 02:01
I’m hoping I’m allowed to invite mr grandchildren in Portland. Just to be able to see and hear them would be wonderful. I really hope this free app. Is successful. What a great way to stay in contact with friends and family.
I love Marco Polo

Allow music to play while recording, then it would be an awesome app.....

I like the app but it would be better if my music continued to play like previously while I I’m recording

Amazing

It’s super fun to send videos to my friends if myself and have them send one back to me!!
Thank you!
by Whitest Girl You Know on 2019/12/07 19:45
I just want to say thank you for building such an amazing app that lets me connect with my family across the country! My brother first told me about it and so I downloaded it and that first week I talked to my brother more than ever it felt like. So then slowly but surely the rest of my family members got it too and we talk ALL the time! We even have a group chat of 10 people and we chat throughout the week. None of this would be possible without this app. It’s just so easy and convenient to use because you can watch the messages and respond at your own time. Possibly the only app I’ve ever felt so more pure gratitude for!
Great app

So fun, but picture quality isn't the best.
by lgfit on 2019/12/07 01:02
I really love being able to talk in groups and to my kids in this app. I think the quality of the camera filter needs to improve.

by neisonfufons on 2019/12/05 23:07
It’s good app but sometimes the other person on the other end can’t hear me. Like the sound is blurred out. Other than that it’s a good app.
Fun app!
by FL person on 2019/12/05 15:19
A friend begged me to get this app so we could “chat” instead of text. I was leery at first because I’m not comfortable with “vlogging” (that’s what it feels like to me. But after a few times sending my videos to my friend, I’m really liking it. Thumbs up!
Best app for busy people
by !?,.456703 on 2019/12/05 14:40
Keeps it personal and teaches you how to show your face even with no makeup and not be embarrassed. Makes me more genuine about who I am . I love it. This app has taught me things. It’s super cool.
Great way to stay connected :-)
by China traveller52 on 2019/12/05 11:57
My wife and I raised our children outside the US. Now we are retired and live in Colorado. It is incredible to be able to send and receive Marco Polo video messages from our adult children who are now raising their families so far away. Right now I am in China and I can connect with my wife in Colorado and my daughter in Malawi. We would have never believed that we would one day be able to communicate this way!
Awesome 👏

My favorite app in existence!
by suzmarstartup on 2019/12/04 22:52
I love Marco Polo! In this fast paced world and with each individual carrying jam-packed daily schedules; Marco Polo keeps me connected to family and friends when we would otherwise grow apart. It allows me to go back and listened to trusted advice and encouragement of my nearest and dearest. It allows me the convenience of listening to my loved ones on my own schedule without getting caught up in long conversations when I am on a deadline. I love seeing my loved ones faces! This is seriously my favorite app! Plus it helps force me to get out of my comfort zone with my self love or lack there of. I have to look at my face every time I record for my loved ones. I work on being nice to myself instead of picking myself apart.
Keeping in touch with overseas family
by Textralian on 2019/12/04 17:54
When your loved ones are in Australia and the time difference is 15-17 hours, depending on the time of year, Marco Polo is great! I don’t awaken them with news anymore, they can get up in the morning and find my message on MP. Thank you for an app that keeps me in the loop with faraway family! 🙏👌👍
I love Marco Polo!
by Maffycakes on 2019/12/04 17:30
Yes, I do because my 32 year old single daughter who lives far from me and I are more connected than before. Yay! Thank you!
Very handy
by jamyprealty on 2019/12/04 17:30
Works great. Easier to use than text and group Marcos are always fun!
Wish I could use it
by Squid!!!!!! on 2019/12/04 10:08
I am overseas with the military and it won’t let me start a profile without a phone number seems like it would be great to talk to my wife. If there is a way to send verification code to my email rather than just my phone number (that doesn’t work where I am) that would be ideal.

Works great for people with different schedules
by schatzsm on 2019/12/03 08:48
I love to talk to my sister on the phone but our schedules are often different. This app allows me send her a video message at 2am as I’m sitting on my couch as I’m drinking my coffee. When she wakes up I'm already at work so she can reply at her convenience and I can watch it and respond at mine. You can also go back and watch previously sent and received messages. Of course we still talk on the phone weekly, but this is a great way to share something with someone without waking them up in the minor the night. It’s very cool.
Get this app
by •••••••••••••••••! on 2019/12/03 04:00
If you don’t answer your text messages like I do then you should totally get this app it’s like a text but with video.

I love this app it is a really good to communicate with family members and who are in the army or live far away. I use this app a lot to Communicate with my aunt who lives in Harrisburg,Pennsylvania. And I have a daughter that’s in College in Youngstown,Ohio. And I use this app you should consider using this app to Connect to love ones.
Best App to keep in touch with friends!
by Shannon12583 on 2019/11/29 16:25
Marco Polo App is everything! I’d officially be lost without it. It has changed the way I communicate with friends and changed friendships- bringing me closer with people than I have been in years. It’s the perfect way to communicate with people in other time zones. I look forward to watching messages and feel like I’m spending time with friends who live all over the country. It it’s changed my life by making it so much fuller. Thank you Marco Polo!
Wish it worked
by catsaredebomb on 2019/11/29 15:20
I downloaded this because a lot of people I know have it but! I have an iPad so it does not work! I was really excited too use you app but I can’t because you have to have a phone number

Wonkie
by 1CaliFunGirl on 2019/11/28 20:11
I’ve been using this app for over a year and used to love it. But since July it has become wonkie. By wonkie, I mean, EVERYTIME I’m watching a marco, I have to fight the “blackout” or “timeout” that happens with the marco. No, this is not a “caching” issue. It’s literally my screen blacks out, and most the time the sound goes very low to silent forcing me to touch my screen or close the app and reopen it. When it first started, we were told to “delete and re-install the app”. Or “it’s only an iPhone issue”. Well that’s not the fix!!! It’s an issue on all platforms!! It’s actually a problem with the app itself!!! Please stop adding other features and focus on this issue so we can enjoy the app. FIX THIS ISSUE PLEASE!!!
Sound is altered
by Robengers on 2019/11/28 01:55
The sound is altered to make it easier to hear but is very annoying. I hope the developers can fix this.
I love Marco Polo!!!
by AwkwardlyInappropriate on 2019/11/28 00:04
I never get to see my best friend, because she moved to another state, but with Marco Polo we now talk multiple times a day! It is awesome!

Marco Polo is a great app I love it because it is fast and easy all my family lives far away from me and my family so I can communicate with them it is much easier then texting and FaceTime me and my friends have a Group chat so whenever we miss each other we talk on Marco Polo you should really get it and this is a kid talking the app is great you can use it whenever and wherever you are I think it is the best app ever
So great for keeping in touch!
by Rainey20132013 on 2019/11/27 14:30
My circle of friends and I recently discovered this app. And we absolutely love it. It’s so much more personal than texting back-and-forth. Getting to see everybody’s faces on a regular basis and hear their voices is just awesome! Definitely going to spread the word and invite more people to join in.
Literally the best video messaging app!!!
by Kingofmemes7895 on 2019/11/27 05:23
I started talking to a girl in Michigan and with the 3 hour time difference (from CA) our schedules are sometimes not in sync, and at the same time we both work so we’re not always available to have a long FaceTime call during the day (we save those for the night when the day is said and done). She then found this app and mentioned it to me so we can try it out and see how it works. Now, it’s helpful to have this app because it lets us send sweet heartfelt videos of each other as we progress throughout our days and it’s really brought us closer in our long distance relationship. One of the most central apps in our lives and I couldn’t be more thankful to have this app available! Plus the beach ball logo is really cute lol.
I see you!
by apteacher on 2019/11/26 21:53
What a great way to see and visit friends, on your own time. Busy? No problem! Leave a message and they can enjoy it when they can. Highly recommend if you have family out of town to stay in touch.
My fav app to keep up with friends
by ryanbigdickenergy on 2019/11/26 21:17
Only improvements I would have is for the quality to stay the same as it was when you recorded it. Also I’d like to be able to view videos sent in full screen with the reaction bar either able to hide or if you click the screen it’ll still pop up while your watching in full screen. Thanks again for a great app!
So fun!
by Valleys ticks on 2019/11/26 19:02
So much fun to “talk”with friends who live across the country and I could never find time to call because of the time difference. This is an amazing way to hear their voice and communicate during the day that’s best for me and for them. Ingenious!
Great app

This app has allowed me to stay close to friends from out of state. I love it! I wish the developers would add a numeric passcode so that videos could stay confidential. Maybe something to consider?
❤️Marco PoYO!❤️
by sndwkjsbsksh on 2019/11/25 02:39
Marco Polo is a great app. It’s like Snapchat and FaceTime or WhatsApp or whatever. If you are trying to tell someone something but they can’t talk at that moment, and you don’t have time to tell them another time you can use Marco Polo! You can just use Marco Polo and tell them, then later they can get back at you. It’s absolutely amazing! Yep, yes, mhmm, this gets FIVE STARS!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Awesome

by Ps119LovetheWord on 2019/11/24 06:08
When I was moving across the country two or three of my friends told me I needed this app. I’ve been using it for over a year now and LOVE IT! Even to just communicate with people locally, it’s way more fun than a voice message, and I feel so much more connected to my friends who live far away. The features are great, gotta love the filters and voices, and it’s super intuitive to use. 5 stars!!!!!!!
Wonderful to feel close!

Best messaging app ever!!
by Three fluffs on 2019/03/08 17:17
My three siblings are all over the country so we don't see each other often. And we're all busy so even talking on the phone regularly is a challenge. But with Marco Polo we talk several times a day and now feel so much more connected and closer than ever! It's as if we were living near one another and having coffee daily. We all treasure this app more than you can imagine. We created a channel for talking to my nephew who is in the Air Force across the country and he really appreciates the opportunity to hear our words of support and encouragement. We have another channel with all the nieces and nephews, allowing us to become so much closer. And we have a channel with our cousins in Italy whom we have never met in person, and that has been really awesome!! This app is do much better than Snapchat or Instagram or FB. My only complaint is that as of the last update it is behaving oddly. If I hit the x to exit from a Polo I'm watching so I can jump ahead and record one, it just freezes the screen on the Polo I was watching while the audio keeps playing and I have to force close the app and maybe I can stop the Polo that's playing so I can jump ahead. This happens every time I try to jump ahead to record when I'm listening to a Polo. It didn't used to do that. iPhone XS Max with the latest iOS. Otherwise we all love it.
Love Marco Polo
by Viki4910 on 2019/02/03 23:45
My niece asked me to join Marco Polo and I was hesitant at first even though it was free. But what I have come to really love besides the fact that it puts us in contact with each other, is the convenience of Marco Polo. I can talk to anyone in the middle the night when I can’t sleep; I can talk in the early hours of the morning before my day gets started; likewise, I can listen to what they sent to me at My convenience regardless of the time of day or night. You can choose to save your conversations or you can erase them when you’re done with them. For years are used to write letters that took a long amount of time not to mention pains of the all hands; then I sent tape cassettes back-and-forth to people over the states to stay closer; and texting also takes a lot of time! But with Marco Polo, you can talk as much or as little as you want to but the most important part is you can talk whenever it is convenient for you to talk. It doesn’t matter at all whether the person you’re talking to is awake or not because they’re not getting this Marco Polo when you’re making it. They listen to it whenever they have time and that might not be for a day or two or even a week. That’s the beauty of Marco Polo. Marco Polo has put me in touch with people that I otherwise was rarely ever in touch with. I absolutely love it and you will too!
Stay at Home Mom Approved!
by KAyHam12 on 2018/05/21 13:31
This app has helped this stay at home Mom keep her sanity! It allows me to talk to friends off and on all day so I don’t just feel stuck at home alone. I LOVE being a SAHM but it can get lonely. So it is so nice to be able to talk to someone basically face to face throughout my day. My sister and I live only a few miles a part and yet we’d go weeks without talking to each other bc we were both too busy with our kids. This app has helped us communicate more than we have in years! And it’s so much better than just getting texts or Snapchat. I hate texting now! I’d much rather send someone a Marco Polo bc it’s so much easier and faster, and I can tell them exactly what I want on my own time. I love that we can have a conversation with each other whenever each of us has a chance. Our free time for a conversation doesn’t have to be at the exact time anymore! This app is amazing. My whole family uses it now, and we share a lot through a group chat. It has helped bring our entire family closer. And it’s so much more personal than Snapchat. On Snapchat I’d only send quick little funny messages to friends or a cute video. But this is more for real conversations. And I love that it’s hands free so I can talk to friends while folding laundry!
What The Change?!
by Srp64209 on 2018/09/19 02:01
Ok so I have a few friends that have this app and we all use it ALL DAY EVERY DAY!! I hate/despise Snapchat! This app is easy to use and understand!! The ONLY reason I gave it 4 stars is because things like this... and I wish I could add pictures to this review to help illustrate the point I’m trying to make. Used the app this morning and it was the same setup as every other day, midway through the day it updated, or so I thought. The ‘emoji icons’ that where at the bottom of the screen where now on the right side of the screen making it easier to not press one by mistake. There where a couple of other small changes but I don’t remember what they where at the moment because it switches back to how it used to be, hence the ‘reverse updating’ I’m mildly confused/complaining about. I even went through and did a proper update to see if I could get to the ‘new’ changes, nothing. Power cycled my fone, still nothing. Checked for any ‘missing’ updates, none to be found... I really liked the new look and was very pleased with how you ‘cleaned up’ the screen area. Either plz fix it to how it was around 2pm cst or just fix the screen clutter!! Nothing like going to press START and being a 1/10sec to slow and ‘loving’ a message of ‘oh, my moms cat died today...’ OTHERWISE... This is actually a really good app overall. Again my friends, all in other states, use it DAILY!!
Deeper friendships
by AshleeO on 2019/02/21 03:28
I heard about this app and decided to download it and invite the women from my weekly church small group to join. We began a group chat that just has not stopped or slowed down one bit! I didn’t think it would be such a hit or so well used, but everyone loves it. We check in with each other nearly every day. Sometimes for small, funny moments. Sometimes for deeper, longer or more serious reasons. But the overall effect has been a much greater connection than we’ve ever had- and our group has been together for about seven years! There is just something so much more intimate and connective about seeing each other (seeing people in their environment, hearing their inflections and watching them process through thoughts vs. a well composed or edited text message). Compared to texting, which was our most used form of communication before, this goes way beyond. With busy days and conflicting schedules (and boisterous children), it’s almost impossible to have any kind of regular phone conversation. This app makes it feel as though you’re entering the other person’a day and they are a part of yours in a much more fun and dynamic way. I wish we would’ve discovered this sooner!
Almost Perfect
by Piragypt on 2019/07/06 19:11
I absolutely love this app! I use it quite often and it comes in handy when I can’t text or want to pair visuals with the message. I feel like this app could be the next platform to blow up, but there is one major problem: On my device, about half the times I try to use Marco Polo, a huge glitch comes up. When I click on a video to watch, it will work for about 1-2 seconds then the screen goes black. The audio still plays but the screen stays black. If I tap the screen nothing changes, but if I press the home button, the video will work for a couple seconds before going black again. Even pressing the power button doesn’t work. The only way I can shut down the app is either waiting for it to crash, or pressing the home button multiple times until the home screen finally appears. I have tried to reinstall the app in case there was a patch or the glitch was a one-off thing on my phone but the issue continued. This is a huge issue that would deter people from using the app. It seems like the customer service here is great so I hope the glitch is taken care of soon if it’s affecting others as well. I have an iPhone by the way, in case that makes a difference. Many thanks for reading my complaint, and good luck with your business. 🙂
Marco Polo even for the old, but young at heart!!
by jpapie on 2019/10/25 20:33
I recently turned 50 and have been using Marco Polo to connect with some other old friends from high school and college. I have never left a review for an app before, but I decided to today because I just left a video for my friends and I realized how long it would have taken me to write it in a text or a phone call to all in the group. You get it all done at one time. You don’t feel like you are getting them at a bad time and they are being polite talking to you. I do not really like FaceTiming not sure I guess it’s that I feel like your still could be interrupting them but now you can see it in their face. With Marco Polo you just send and answer on your time. You still get the facial reaction to what you had to tell them and again it is so much faster than texting and you can get across what you want to say by your facial expression. Oh did I mention it’s easy!!! Anyone should be able to use it young and old, personal or work related. Just try it out. There are fun things you can add and funny voices and if you want you can also respond back by text!! Enjoy have a fantastic day!!
L❤️VE THIS APP
by neversitsstill on 2018/01/08 06:36
I like the app because it allows users to send and receive videos when it’s convenient. It’s hard to FaceTime when people have different schedules and live in different time zones. Besides, I love getting video messages over text messages because I can tune into the persons mood, I love to see their face, it just makes me feel like I’m closer and it’s made all the difference! I have friends who have use this and loved it with their grandchildren! I personally started using it when I was homebound for an extended period of time due to illness and getting video messages from friends was always a highlight! My only suggestion (and reason I gave it four stars instead of five) would be to not make people wait for some of the “bells and whistle’s”. Sometimes it’s the little things make the app much more interactive and fun. Why not give those to everyone so they have a full experience from the beginning? At the time I’m writing this you have to have been a user for 30 days AND have sent at least 50 video messages. I don’t think people view getting to use emojis while watching live as an incentive to keep using it as much as they might see it as a reason to quit using it. The more interactive the two parties can be the better. Otherwise great app.
Great app, but has some flaws...
by Cassaunova on 2018/04/10 11:38
I have loved this app since the moment I downloaded it. Everyone I’ve introduced it to has also loved it. It’s a great way to keep in touch, and it can easily fit into the busiest schedules because the videos can be watched any time. One of the greatest features of Marco Polo is being able to see that your friend(s) is/are watching your live video. In the last month or so, this feature has been extremely inconsistent. It will not show that my friends are present in the conversation, and vise versa, it does not show them that I am active. This is the same with the emojis. Even when a user is active and present in the conversation, the other users can not see any emojis that are being sent. It seems the only way to correct this issue is to force close the app and reboot it. My friends and I have to do this several times each day we use the app. Super frustrating! I still love the app, but I do wish they would correct this issue. Also, adding the ability to send chats while a friend is talking would be super helpful! Similar to Facebook/Instagram/YouTube live, how the users can send comments that the person streaming live can view during the video. Also, MORE EMOJIS!!
Love love love
by fizzypop80 on 2019/10/25 18:45
I love love love Marco Polo. I was introduced to it my my mentor initially who was using it to have group chats with her students. At the time I had just moved halfway across the country with my family and knew no one in my new city. I felt so isolated and disconnected. So I started introducing MP to my friends and now I feel more intimately connected with them than ever before. I have my work from home moms from before that I connect with, my best friends and even friends that I only used to get to chat with once every few months bc of time zones and busy lifestyles. We’ve all grown much closer and I’m so thankful for this app. I have even had weekly (or more) chats with my cousin all the way in Australia - that was always a hard one to maintain bc were on opposites sides of the world and our times hardly ever matched. My kids get to chat and connect with their cousins in Australia and also our friends from our home city. One tiny thing I’d love (just updated the app so maybe it’s already happened) is for MP to render color better when in brighter light so I don’t look like a ghost haha! Other than that please don’t mess with the app too much!
Marco Polo is the best way to connect digitally
by EveFanForLife831 on 2018/09/17 20:17
This app has helped me stay in contact with my family(there are 9 of us and we are all very close but live in different cities), I can see them anytime I want and let them in on what’s going on with my life and also have incredibly deep and meaningful conversations with my FRIENDS!! This app is THE APP for all of my introverted/social anxiety ridden/recluse babies too- girl, you can STAY CONNECTED and participate in ALL of your friends lives with the click of a “start” button! You can stay involved and get back to their videos whenever is convenient! Seriously, if you have a hard time getting out or can’t always participate in stuff with your extroverts(cause let’s be honest extroverts always latch on to introverts and that’s how we socialize😂). But this app has been a HUGE game-changer for my introverted friends who never go out with me!! Now we have great conversations(some serious, some fun, some silly), and I get to see their faces everyday if I want to! It’s a great way to remain connected without having to over exert yourself by going out all the time💓
Needs more privacy and easier delete function
by Userlune on 2018/06/21 22:27
First of all, thanks for a free app with a fun concept. That said, I really wish there were a feature to select and delete multiple chats at a time. I didn’t know when I gave the app access to my contacts that it would automatically spam my page with everyone in my phone on the app (including a few I don’t even recognize). I use the app for family and a few close friends only, so I don’t like being spammed with people I didn’t choose. And I don’t want all those people to be able to send me messages. Not everyone in your phone is someone you want to see that much! Please, developers, at least make it optional to automatically upload all your phone contacts who use the app OR part of them (manually). All this, and the fact that it took a while to delete each person from my main page or feed, or group of tiles (whatever it’s called) made me consider deleting the app. I still may if it continues to be a problem. Like I said, it’s a fun concept, but I don’t like the clutter and lack of privacy options. Any plans to work on that? Maybe take a page from the Instagram interface where you choose whom you want to follow/see?
This app saved my relationship
by Vee1317 on 2019/03/18 15:53
If my boyfriend and I didn’t have this app during our long distance relationship for a year, I’m not sure if we would’ve lasted. Because of the huge time difference and we both were so busy, we couldn’t always text or FaceTime. But Marco Polo, we were able to leave video messages to each other. No pressure to respond or feeling bad that we missed a FaceTime call. We simply just responded whenever we were able to. I would be a spokesperson for them honestly because this app is amazing. I use it to talk to my family living in different places as well! Also, my family was able to keep in contact with my boyfriend while he was away. He was able to keep in contact with his family. It’s just amazing! That’s why I gave it 5 stars, sometimes the app does have its issues but honestly it’s just like any other app with issues. It’s an app! It’s not perfect. Even IG and FB has its moments. You can save videos you made and send them. Have group chats. Sorry for the long review but I just love this app!
Love it, but having minor issues
by cathrynlouise on 2018/10/30 14:34
I have really been loving this app. I’ve been using it with my best friends that live all over the world for about a year and a half now, and we’ve actually grown way closer because of it. It helps to keep us updated on each other’s lives without having to worry about planning times to catch up. Since we’re in multiple different time zones, this has helped us out so much! That being said, the ONLY complaint I have is what happened after the most recent update. My cousin and I use this as our main source of communication because of our busy schedules, but recently, the videos just started getting cut off. Normally I get a notification when the connection is bad and then the full video sends later (when it reconnects). Now, the videos just completely stop and I miss out on a vast majority of the full video. We have almost completely stopped using the app because having to come back on and repeat everything has been a really big inconvenience. Before that happened, I had absolutely no complaints about the app! If this gets fixed, I’ll be back up to 5 stars 👍🏼
NEEDED key feature
by WalkingTrees824 on 2019/05/09 12:17
this app is great as a walkie talkie app with friends and family. And I love the idea of the 2x speed option especially when I’m far behind in my polos. HOWEVER... PLEASE add the ability to have the speed be 1.25, 1.5, and 1.75x. To me 2x is typically too fast to understand people when they’re talking. UI wise, just make it a long press to change up the speed settings and have it stay at the user preferred rate. This shouldn’t be too much of a change on the dev side so please add this much needed feature! And once you do, I’ll add a star back. As always with my reviews, I’m skeptical of privacy with free apps that want me to sign up with an account. Your privacy outline is also pretty vague with who you CAN give my info to so for that reason, I’ve taken another star off. Pretty sure you’re not going to change that but privacy is becoming a bigger and bigger issue these days and I feel companies need to do a better job of being transparent of their intentions with our info and ensuring they’re not giving it to random companies that us as the consumers aren’t aware of. Bottom line. Please just add the speed feature and I’ll update my review! Thanks!
So blessed to have Marco Polo
by CaramelAndChameleons on 2019/10/30 13:41
Thank you so much for creating this app. I adore it! I love being able to keep in contact this way, and especially that it’s unlimited and you can save them! When I moved halfway across the country it was a way to interact with family and friends left behind. When I started dating it was a way to share the details of our hearts, minds, and days on a personal level and now I can look back over our journey through Marco Polo and remember!!! Also, I have a couple of questions/suggestions: could you make it available to access your videos and create them online as well? Like from your website? I would also love to be able to download the videos from months ago to my device/computer so that I can save them to a disc as well, but the problem is that I can’t download many past Marco Polos because I have so many with my fiancé that I have to go to “see all” and when I tap on a video it will play and pause, but there are no other options. Could that be updated, please?! Thank you!!
Love it! Can I make a suggestion!?
by Stefunny0609 on 2019/10/15 04:53
Loving the app and staying in touch with friends! I wanted to make a suggestion regarding time and timers. 1) the time display disappears while you are watching a video .. I love to watch when I can with a busy mom life.. that includes knowing what time it is .. I have to stop the video to check the time.. not a big deal but would be helpful! Which brings me to 2) Can we add a timer on the video.. like when you see the video, maybe include the time length of the video on the bottom right corner or something? Would be super helpful! Sometimes I don’t watch a video thinking I won’t have time to get thru it.. I play it and it’s over in 30 seconds haha or you listen to a video have to pause and go back to it often cause you don’t realize it’s 45 minutes long.. be helpful to know how long the videos are or even a timer for when you are recording a message so you can check yourself to! Obviously the app is amazing without these suggestions, but just wanted to throw that out there :)
Love this!
by juneburgs on 2017/09/19 03:13
I love almost everything about this app! It's like having a FaceTime conversation, where everyone in the thread can respond when they have time instead of immediately. Way simpler than just sending video messages back and forth. I like that the videos can last as long as you want and that they don't disappear after watching, unlike Snapchat. One improvement would be the ability to share videos that you previously filmed on your phones camera to your group. I shared this idea with the app support team, and they quickly followed up with me for more information about my idea. I was really impressed by the team behind the app! I'm hoping that is a feature included in future updates. Another improvement is that sometimes after watching a video in fast forward, after I try to resume regular speed, the picture and audio don't match up. Not the end of the world, just annoying. Otherwise love the app and love using it every day!
love this app
by Grayce K on 2017/09/30 17:07
it's perfect for me to communicate voice messages to my friends and family. Whether we are on a different time schedule for work or school or for example in a different state/ time zone or country/ on vacation and when you have something to say on the go and they can't talk and it's just too long to type. plus I love that it does save the conversation as some friends have written this app off as (well it's like snapchat) but really no I use mine to document my day not talk to my friends. This is more of the old school Facebook that use to let you record videos on your friends walls (don't know why they ever took that away) if you were a college student when it first came out reading this then I'm sure you know what I mean! I did however give this only 3 stars because this would be great since it is used with your phone number integrated into my regular messages where I text instead of having another notification and another app to have to open. I think that's where the app could advance into something bigger and better. Other than that thank you and this app is a great tool I use it daily!
Forced list view
by Kenna Turner on 2018/09/30 19:30
At first, I LOVED this app. My family and friends all use it and it’s been our main form of communication for months now. However, about a week ago, every time I launch the app, I’m forced to use list view vs tile view. I hate list view. It’s ugly, outdated, and less efficient. I used to be able to choose between list view or tile view, I always chose tile view because I’d rather see a bunch of large thumbnails than have to read the stupid group titles or names. I am the ONLY one out of ALL of my contacts that no longer has this option! I contacted App Support to get them to switch mine back, they just sent me a few generalized and impersonal emails telling me they appreciated my feedback and stating this is a test run. I didn’t sign up for this. I am very upset. I deleted the app and redownloaded it to see if that would fix the issue, it did. For 24 short hours. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. I was literally IN the app, USING Marco Polo when all of a sudden it switched to list view! If this issue isn’t fixed, I’d strongly suggest you make sure you’re okay with having an outdated look that can only fit 6 chats on a screen (vs the 9 you can fit on a screen in tile view.)
This App has changed my life
by Blargle12 on 2018/11/27 07:29
My family and friends are scattered all over the world and I’m pretty much alone in my city so being able to talk to them with this app has been an incredible lifesaver. I honestly don’t know how I would have made it the last few months without this because I can keep in touch with my family and friends in a way that makes it possible for us to go about our lives without needing to schedule specific times to call or FaceTime. The fact that one of us is in Florida, another in Texas, one in California and I’m in Oregon, but we all communicate constantly through the time differences is amazing. Before this app we were drifting apart due to the distance and lack of contact but now we “see” each other at least every other day and keep up with each other’s lives. Thank you so much for this!!! I can’t express how much I love having this tool to stay in touch. Now if only my best friend would actually watch the polos I’ve sent him....
Volley-call !!!!
by mimisgame on 2017/11/02 22:34
I am a fast typist/avid texter and normally would rather text than do phone calls. But this app is a fabulous mixture of both. One reason I hate phone calls is that I have to think about what I need to say and I feel rushed or flustered in a phone conversation. Texting let’s me edit, or think about what I want to say but takes a while for me to text it all out. But now there’s Marco Polo!!!! At first I didn’t like it. When a person has recorded their little “talk” and you are listening, you respond while they are talking but they don’t hear it. Felt a little cut off. But then, as I volleyed a few times I began to feel the beauty of this. It gives the benefit of time to the messenger (like texting does) but you also get the benefit of voice, tone and facial expression. It’s the best parts of texting and phone conversations mixed. Now I love it more than texting and certainly WAY more than phone calls. Marco eliminates oodles of time I spend texting. Love this app. 😉
Mature Snapchat
by JemChaucer on 2019/06/26 12:41
My daughter calls Marco Polo the “ old person’s” snapchat...🤣 that can’t be right of course because I’m 52 and NOT old. I was hesitant to add one more “social media” into my life other than literally getting out and socializing … but am so grateful I did. It has enabled me to regain REAL and close relationships with old friends and family who live far enough away that we have missed out on all those little ,everyday moments that you don’t remember on those “few times a year” phone calls. I can Marco Polo my best friend and /or sisters who live across the country and make it as long or as short as I want, and then enjoy their company (response) where and whenever is convenient for me . It’s almost like sitting across from them for lunch or coffee. I would definitely recommend Marco Polo for anyone “mature “ enough to enjoy real connections... and really anyone! Wish I had it when my kids were little for grandparents and their Dad when he traveled for business. LOVE IT!
Worth getting, but could be better.
by Guitar Popcorn on 2019/01/25 22:41
This app is pretty good. You can do all kinds of things in this app. There are voice changers, the ability to delete messages you already sent, and basic color filters. Why four stars? I feel like they can do more and make the app better. Snapchat filters are way better than Marco Polo filters. I don’t know what it is, but I feel something is missing. In addition, different devices work differently. My friend has a phone that can cover the camera with a giant emoji. My phone couldn’t do that. Over video chat, he tried to teach me how to do it. First, he tried showing me a reflection of his phone doing it, but he couldn’t get it to the right angle. So he decided to show me him doing it on another phone. The other device could not do it. That’s when we realized that it doesn’t work on all devices. I don’t know why different devices do different things. However, for the most part, Marco Polo is a good app worth getting. Sorry for the ridiculously long review. Enjoy your day! (And Marco Polo!)
My favorite app
by Christmassoup on 2018/07/22 18:37
I don’t know how I could manage without Marco Polo. For me it’s like when you didn’t have a cell phone and got along ok but once you got your cell phone you really can’t imagine how you’d get along without it. MP has become my main means of communication with family who are 3 time zones apart. Everyone can do it at their convenience. The small children enjoy drawing and writing on it and the older kids and adults can talk as long as they want to without having to worry about whether a file is too large to upload. Not only is it great for communicating with far away friends and family (it works internationally too as long as there’s cell phone service) but I also have found that I have kept in closer contact with good friends and the depth and detail of our conversations can be so much greater than it is via text. And so much faster. And of course you can do group conversations. I absolutely love this app!! HC Atlanta GA
Love it...when it works
by Percival George on 2018/08/02 15:19
This app is everything it’s promised to be! I adore using it. It really does help sustain your relationships with long-distance friends, or even next-door neighbors when you’re too lazy to actually hang out. 😂 It’s got the best features of FaceTime and texting combined into one awesome app. Recently, however, it’s been pretty glitchy on my phone. Sometimes, I’ll open it and it’ll be frozen. I’ll have to exit out and then go back into it. And I could absolutely live with that (the same thing’s happened to other apps on my phone, so that could just be my phone), but there’s more. When I tried to look at my new polos this morning, the videos were interspersed with just total screen blackouts. The audio continued, but the screen switched unreliably from the actual video to black. None of the other apps on my phone have ever done that. I’ll restart my phone and see what happens...but I’m so attached to some of the old videos on here that I don’t want to try re-installing the app yet. :) Overall, Marco Polo is amazing! I don’t know anyone else with the blackout problem, so it could just be my phone...but if it’s a Marco Polo issue, I’d like to see that fixed.
Great communication For Busy Prople
by gowriter98 on 2018/08/13 23:02
Sometimes you’re so busy you don’t have time to do real-time chat. So this serves as a great tool for video communication, kind of like a video email. Saves you typing. If you have arthritis this is a great way to chat with friends. You just talk. You get to see a face, see expressions, see smiles and laughs. Not just words where you can misinterpret the message. But you’re also mindful of other people’s time. If they don’t have time to real-time chat, they can always get back to you, and you can view the whole message before responding and no one’s interrupting each other. So it’s almost like a virtual conversation. I think these days we don’t have enough face to face conversation and that can affect your ability to socialize and relate to others. Plus the conversation is private between you and another. Nothing beats talking to your friend face to face in real life, but this is pretty close.
Great way to stay in touch!
by Chase and Vaida Smith on 2018/01/31 13:42
My wife changed the way the Smith family communicates with this app! We are missionaries in Lithuania and love that we are only a video message away from our loved ones in the States!! The app is great for many reasons, but one of my favorite ones is because it doesn’t store the video on your phone, therefore saving space on your device. It is also super easy to use! My mom might be what you’d call technologically-challenged, but she can use it no problem. We bought her an iPod, installed Marco Polo, taught her how to use it, and after about a year she has transitioned into a smart phone because of using this app! I also love the group messaging! I have a few groups that can easily keep in touch with, and not just keep in touch with, but SEE them!! We enjoy seeing our friends and family, and like the fact that we don't have to wait for the stars to align perfectly so our schedules match up to be able to see one another. There is one thing that I would change though. We got Marco Polo before we moved here from the States, so we were already connected with all of our family and friends on our app. We had to get new phone numbers after we moved here, but we cannot change, nor add a new phone number to my Marco Polo profile, making it harder for people to find me. All around, this is an outstanding app!
Won't work
by kdomm on 2017/10/24 20:32
My friends and I have used this app daily and I have loved it up until now. Out of nowhere it started to tell me to enable the microphone in my settings so that friends could hear me. It won't let me open up my friends messages until I do so. It worked just fine a day or 2 before that, which is the confusing part. There were no updates on my phone to change anything. So I went into settings, but there is nothing there to allow or enable in the microphone settings. It just says "applications that have requested access to the microphone will appear here. Well, there is nothing there! It's really frustrating! I contacted Apple and they tried to help me with the situation, but in the end it seems to be on the app developer's end. I'm so frustrated. I want to hear what my friends have to say. This is how I keep in contact with a few girls that live far away and family members. I have contacted the app developer and have not heard back yet. Hopefully they will contact me soon to fix this problem.
Love this app
by Dancingirl3225 on 2019/03/22 19:47
This app has changed the game for me and my closest friends. For years we have been separated by continents and variation of social media usage. As a result, it has been so hard to stay in touch. In January 2018, we started using Marco Polo. Now we communicate daily and can listen and record when convenient. We feel like kids again with the ability to share the big and small parts of each day with each other. Thankfully, we are back on the same continent and are planning our second trip together this year with the help of this app. I love the emojis and ability to write notes. I removed a star because I wish there was a way to tell how long the messages are as I am recording or listening. I also wish there were more variations on emojis. Additionally, when I started using the app, some features only became available after a certain amount of uses. Not a fan of “earning” features. Overall, this is one of my favorite apps to use
Best app ever!!!
by SaraEwifemomtechteacher on 2019/07/01 01:25
I love Marco Polo! It has helped me is to stay in touch with family and Friends both fire in the year. I love the convenience of not having to both be available for a live video chat and having great quality Do you still be able to Communicate. My two-year-old and one-year-old boys have recognized easily their cousins and grandparents from out of state during the summer vacation thanks to your awesome app. Also, the person housesitting for us was able to show us what was happening with our fridge when it started having issues. I can’t say enough good things about it. My husband recently had to leave for vacation early due to his job and we are still able to see and talk to him even though we have a time difference. I admittedly rarely Take the time to give reviews but yours is worth the extra effort. I hope many other families are blessed as much as mine by your app. ❤️
Good stuff.
by Beat master beets on 2018/02/13 07:02
This sh%^t is A ok. Like it, except that the picture quality is not very endearing. I haven't seen a friend look good on these messages. Maybe it's because I'm now 45 but refuse to behave like one. And hence my looks are what they are. But I refuse to believe I have a double chin the size of that in these videos. I actually have a better angle if I hold it up, pointing down at me. I guess my baldHead is now my good side. Sad. But overall a great app. Definitely beats texting. Al least the worlds come out as intended, versus the simple Written word that can be taken differently than it was meant to. I always said this iPhone would cause a race war with its spell check that places words like "douche"or "kill your self" in places where you never intended them to be. With MarcoPolo the tone is apparent in someone's facial features and delivery. A great app. Download it and begin to use it. Peace in the middle East and Newark NJ. Yo!
Awesome and continually improving!
by RoxyRazor on 2018/05/30 01:25
I have really loved using this app for keeping in touch with my sweet cousin who lives in Texas, while I live in Georgia. However there are some functions I wish they would add. We tend to record lengthy videos, and I wish I could pause her videos and resume where I left off. It's annoying that if I need to pause to do something else, I then have to rewatch everything I've already seen. Also, sometimes the video and audio get out of sync. If I press the rewind five seconds button, it syncs back up. With these two tweaks, I could easily give this app five stars. UPDATE! I just learned you can use the slider at the bottom to quickly pick up where you left off, if you have to stop watching and come back to it. Life changer! Support is also SUPER responsive. I use this app daily to talk to my cousin so I really appreciate all the hard work! I still also have some sync problems but it doesn’t bother me as bad as it used to.
Love it only few wishes
by Maggiemaytn on 2018/04/30 19:57
This app is great if you have family or friends living out of state & want to send instant videos to them & get an Instant video back from them. Can use Just to chat or to send them something interesting funny creative or something crazy the kids are doing as it's happening. I do wish that the app would allow you to change the main picture in a group only on your end without the rest of the group picture being changed to what u choose also. And wish that it would let you review & give you an option on whether you want to send, edit, save or delete your video before sending it out because once you his "stop" it sends it & it's out there unless you can figure out how to delete it quick enough before any friends or family sees it. I do like the fact that you can choose who you want to be in your groups or you could send them in individual video if you'd rather only them see it.
Wow

I didn’t really expect something that’s so simple to so positively impact my day the way it has. If you’re tired of the baggage that comes with social media, like comparison temptation, superficiality, managing an online identity, think about taking a break and getting your family, real friends, or people you’d like to know better on Marco Polo. I downloaded Marco Polo after I had my first baby a few months ago. I was homebound tons, often in a chair nursing. I was able to vent, cry, laugh back and forth over Marco Polo. It has strengthens my relationships immensely. It’s so fun and way more effective than text messages. I would loooove a feature that allows us to save message streams as an entire whole. My hubs and I go back and forth during his weekday and in-between meetings and a crazy day he feels like he can see and know baby better, be in touch with what we’re up to. Thanks Marco Polo!
More than Apple Music....
by Sleeping duelist on 2018/11/01 00:49
So I’m not really into the social media scene but since this is the only way that my cousins and I can stay in touch this app has been used more that my Apple Music. Irk, “ this guy must be joking...” no dead serious. And we try and make so many videos for the ones that are slacking on the rebound to catch up. It’s holarious!!! We actually got up to 179 videos before anyone can see. So I do appreciate the work you guys put out. The only problem that I seem to be the only one having is that I can’t get my emojis to work. I can’t find them anywhere on the screen and was informed by my elder cousins that I can only do that during the viewing of someone else’s video and still I have nothing. Even though this is the only downfall I would still give this app a phat 5 starts. If you could toss in pic sharing that would be awesome. Please help. Thanks and God bless😁
Excellent communication tool
by Rogue for Christ on 2019/08/30 00:58
This is actually the FIRST time I’ve written a review for an app or anything for that matter. This little app is awesome, Marco Polo enables me to just talk, conversationally like I would face to face but even better because I really don’t like to be on the phone. It’s always been awkward for me. This way I get to fill my brother, Justin, in on what’s going on in my life, ask him what’s up with him and I don’t have to worry about it being just perfect. It isn’t “a post”, it’s a one on one comment or conversation with a close friend. So much easier and smooth than writing also. Marco Polo really is a great use of technology, and it hasn’t cost me a penny. I don’t have pop up adds coming across my phone from them, they’re not asking me to buy anything, it’s really as close to exactly what I want as anything COULD be. I’d recommend it to anybody and everybody!
Seems useful at first
by Zipzap74 on 2019/03/13 13:25
I like the thought of video chatting with my friends, but like many people there are quite a few old friends in my contacts that I would not like to speak too Willy nilly. This app is insistent about letting everyone else know when your on Marco Polo to the point that I don’t even want to open the app to respond to my mom. It pushes notifications about random people that are coming on constantly when all I want to know about is my select few that I care to talk too. Not to mention it’s also sent out spam messages to business partners and I believe that is unprofessional. If this is going to be the next text message let me keep my privacy. Many of my close friends feel the same way, along with posts on reddit. I’m starting to feel like negative reviews are swept under the rug on this app. If you don’t care about any of those things that I mentioned, the utility itself can be kind of cool, but nothing new really. Snapchat is pretty close to the same without yelling on the mountain tops to everyone that you’ve opened your app today and would like to chat.
Video Quality TERRIBLE
by Szabolcs7315 on 2019/04/18 15:38
So I get that the videos need to be lower quality so they’re easy to send and store online, but the quality of the camera and compression blows out people’s faces and makes everyone pale or yellow like they’re sick. (Side note The filters are absolute crap). I would love an option to create a group that has high quality settings on where the camera quality drastically improves and the files aren’t as compressed but the video history gets deleted after like 10 videos or something or they’re kept for 1 week and then deleted. Something, cause right now the quality of video is terrible. Also some decent filters would be nice. Update: April 18, 2019 Still no update to quality, which at this point I don’t even care about, a HUGE and easy improvement would be to have manual exposure control for the camera because the auto exposure constantly blows out peoples faces.
Request?
by Cortknie on 2018/11/12 14:02
Hello! I love the Marco Polo app so much! It’s helped me stay connected with my friends and family after moving states away! My 2 best friends and I have a group chat on there and at times we’ll leave each other long Polos to listen to! One question/request I would love to add is, would there ever be a feature where you can take notes while listening to a Polo? There have been so many times I have wanted to jot down notes or bullet points within the app while listening to my friends Polo so I know which topics to cover when I respond...I know it’s such a minor thing, but the nerd in me would love it if this was a possibility within the app! My friends also agreed! I’m not sure if this is even where to leave this request, but I promised them I would write in to ask! I’m sure other faithful Marco Polo users would love this feature as well! Thank you!!
I’m really digging this man
by im a nerd too on 2018/10/23 07:49
Well I think it was like last year sometime ago one of my younger in nephews had invited me to Marco Polo well beings that we had a pool in our backyard in the kids the grandkids got to grow up with that Becky teaching them to swim and such, I was sent a Marco Polo request from my nephew and I just seen it again today and it’s like by golly I’m going to update this app because this is a lot of fun and I got another invite from my sister-in-law and I am like really digging this I had a hard time figuring it out and I’m still having kind of a hard time you know like talking with somebody face-to-face or whatever but I think what it is is that we get to watch the other one while they’re alive or whatever? But it’s a lot of funAnd I like the fact that I could record something with no time limit and it get delivered I really like that
Love it
by Gl1tt3rK1tt3n on 2017/09/27 02:01
I love this app. I started using it a few days ago and I'm obsessed. I've always had a hard time keeping up with friends who move away and this is the answer to that problem. First, it's great to talk without being interrupted. Second, you're basically having a convo on your own time so you don't have to worry about do I have time for a phone call or face time? Third, it almost feels like recording a video diary so it's incredibly cathartic. I haven't had any issues or glitches. The one thing I was wishing I could do was erase a video once it gets started if I lose track of what I'm saying but reading the other reviews it sounds like you can do that... just have to figure it out. And one other thing is I wish it had better filters but not a big deal. Overall great app for keeping up with long distance friends!!
Critical
by Elyssia Browning on 2018/04/29 01:17
Hi Marco polo, my name is Elyssia Browning and my family and I are in a predicament. My sister is Karisa Clemens you might’ve heard about her story in the newspaper or in social media in general but she was in the horrific car accident on April 7th 2018, that killed her, her husband and her two-month-old baby leaving her four other children orphans. Her phone was destroyed and unfortunately my family and I are desperate to retrieve any of the Marco Polo’s that she sent to us. We can listen to them over and over again on our phones but there is no way to save them or to preserve them so her children can see them later on in life. And I really don’t want anything to happen to them or have them deleted because then we’ll basically lose her forever. If there is anyway Marco Polo can save them and send them to the family or allow us access to save them on our personal phones we would be so grateful. Please help us!
App constantly crashes
by CRCnTX on 2017/12/08 16:21
This app has never worked. It crashes within 3 seconds of launch even if I don’t click on anything. I’ve deleted and reinstalled and still it doesn’t work. They seem to have serious stability issues. When I contacted support they told me it was a problem for iPhone X users. I know at least 2 other iPhone X users that aren’t having any problems so I’m not buying that response. Guess they just didn’t want to invest time in trying to diagnose the problem. UPDATE: I was able to get past the issue cause my app to crash. Steps taken were to turn on airplane mode leaving all networks off (LTE and WiFi). Open Marco Polo and click into your feeds. You’ll see icons turning as the video segments try to load. Eventually they will time out. Close the app, turn off airplane mode and relaunch the app. All video segments reloaded themselves and played without issue. I notified support of this work around so hopefully the developers can improve client error handling to eliminate the issue.
Very Awesome!!!
by cjflowers on 2019/02/05 18:38
A friend recommended this app to me to communicate more freely with my grown kids and grandkids that live far away. It is not like FT in the fact that you can send live videos and the other party can either respond back immediately with their own live video or, if they are unavailable, they can respond when convenient and vice verse! I got to see my daughter AND Justin Timberlake when she was at his concert and we communicated back and forth during concert! It was like I was there!! I get to see my grandsons playing ball games and other activities while they are engaging in them and I can send them encouragement and praise in real time. I love the group option where I can communicate with the whole family at the same time. This app has made this lonely old lady feel like part of my family’s life while they are living it!!!
Great Way to Keep in Touch
by alliebraille on 2019/09/03 17:40
My friend convinced me to download this app when we both moved away from home. I was reluctant at first, but I am so glad I did. Marco Polo makes it easier for busy people to keep in touch with friends and family in a way that still feels conversational and more personal and meaningful than text. I love how convenient Marco Polo makes communicating as you don’t have to be available at the exact moment someone is talking to you and can open the message at a better time for you. This also makes sending messages easier because you don’t have to plan around the other person’s schedule or worry about interrupting their daily life. I definitely recommend Marco Polo to anyone who wants to maintain relationships and stay connected to people they might otherwise lose touch with over time.
Way of the future
by Braddock_MIA on 2017/10/13 14:33
This is basically the best of both worlds. It's like texting and FaceTime smashed together. Best part is that I'm not tempted to text while driving anymore. I got the phone up on my dash holder and "click" I'm recording. This has changed the way I keep in touch with friends. Only gripe I have, and it's a big one, is that they want you too upload your contacts SOOOOO badly. I can tell you how many people I've convinced to download Marco Polo that deleted it after they saw that it wanted them to upload their contacts around every corner. To the devs: I love your app and I appreciate it but man, I don't want to upload my contacts for crying out loud. I don't want the contractor I paid to fix my fence 4 years ago to receive a message saying "your friend Braddock just joined Marco Polo, say hi!" And I definitely don't want to receive a Marco Polo from him! Please stop pushing that. I'd rate 5 stars if it didn't do that with every attempt to reach out to someone.
Great App!
by Ssears123 on 2018/02/26 13:27
I love this app!!! My family is all over the place (different states) and everyone is on a different schedule so it is really nice to be able to communicate with them whenever they are available. We also use the app pretty much all day to send videos of our toddler to his grandparents and they love getting to see what he is doing all day. The only reason I gave the review four stars instead of five is because the video quality is starting to go downhill. I feel like when we first started using this app a year ago the picture was crisp (as if it were a video shot through the camera feature on your phone). Now the videos come through extremely blurry. It looks nice while recording, but once sent it looks like it was filmed using a camera phone from 2004. 😕 My request is to dedicate programming time to the quality of the videos being sent 👍🏼.
Making long distance shorter
by LittleLilah on 2019/03/11 00:46
I love this app! It has helped me reconnect with friends and stay in touch with family even though we are in different time zones and have such busy schedules. It’s SO nice to be able to watch the videos when I have time or be able to go back and watch videos again if there was something I missed, or something referenced again in a later conversation. I wish that there was a way to “bookmark” where I am in a received video so that if I need to pause it to respond to something, it can go back to the place where I pause it. Sometimes the current video you are watching will pick up where you left off, but sometimes it starts over or if you accidentally jump ahead to a more recent video, it loses your spot completely and it’s hard to remember which video you were watching. Also, lately, sometimes when I click the X when I’m watching a video, so I can respond, the screen goes black and I can still hear the video playing but I can’t see anything. I hope that bug fix is addressed in the next update. Overall I love this app and would definitely recommend it to family and friends, even if the scripted “tell your friend they have a video from you” message is so corny that a few of my friends thought they were being spammed or hacked.
