Thanks for using Marco Polo!


Marco Polo is a face-to-face messaging app for one-to-one and group conversations—bringing family and friends closer than ever with genuine conversations and moments shared.

Connecting face-to-face brings you closer to those you love—no matter the distance. Send a video, a “Polo”, to start a conversation, tell a story, coordinate plans, share moments.

Connect in Groups
Create as many groups as you like to stay in touch with family and friends near and far. Reminisce or catch the latest.

Fun & Funny
Laugh, be silly; voice and camera filters and doodles will make your whole group chuckle.

Share Daily Moments Effortlessly
Genuine time together happens in moments like saying good morning, the baby’s cute gurgles, watching the ball game, desperately needed advice on that outfit. One tap to connect instantly.

On Your Own Time or Real Time
Chat with friends and family real-time (walkie talkie style), or respond when it’s convenient. No need to wait for everyone to be live. Rich conversations at your own pace.

Perfect for connecting on-the-go when your hands are busy—turn dinner prep time or the walk between appointments into quality time with loved ones.

Full Expressions, No Typing
After sending a Polo, you won’t want to text again. With one tap, express yourself fully; see facial expressions, hear tone of voice. No typing, no miscommunication.

Free & Unlimited
Go ahead, chat as long as you like. It’s free to use. Most Polos are stored on our server to free up space on your device.

Enjoy Now and Watch Again Later
Watch and re-watch Polos whenever you like—they won’t disappear.

It’s Private
Trust that your communication is private. No one has access to your Polos.

Love, Love, Love this app. It allows my highs school girlfriends to instantly connect. We have a grouped Marco Polo and we're able to total keep up with each other!!!
goodbro121 on 7/19/2018
I can talk to anyone now without just sending messages like iMessage thank you
Poor video
Vivian10000000000 on 7/19/2018
I love the concept except the video quality is not that great. At first I thought it was my camera but I have the iPhone 7plus. Something fun to add would be some filters.
Kinda dumb
4kids<3 on 7/19/2018
It’s basically a bad copy of Snapchat. Which is fun and carefree. I’m just not feeling this app!
Barkin Beagle on 7/19/2018
Would like to have the option to have live chats
Love this app
Aggieboy67 on 7/19/2018
Fantastic app. Love using.

Marko Polo is one of my most favorite apps of all time. I recommend getting it. But there are some down sides to it, like why does it take so long to get the emojis to send them to others that are live? And sometimes it doesn’t allow you to watch your previous Marko Polos! Other than this, Marko Polo is one of the best apps you could ever get. 😀
Mo. Mugga on 7/19/2018
I love connecting with my grandkids this way! They do some cute stuff!
Marco Polo Correcto
Van Houten on 7/19/2018
This has been an app that has allowed us to keep better contact with distant friend 💗
bassman_3680 on 7/18/2018
This app is so helpful. I use it to chat with my bff who lives in California and it helps so much better than FaceTime or messages!!!👍🏾😜💕 I LOVE this app!!!
I love it!!!
BBtheapplebee on 7/18/2018
No audio lag in the video and really great since I’m too tied up with my hands to text all the time. Would recommend for people who multitask but still want to talk
Staying in touch
maple1950 on 7/18/2018
I use Marco Polo to communicate with a friend that lives quite far from me. She likes to communicate almost daily. However I do not like typing so texting and emailing were not for me. But this way we can share long videos and I can respond when it is convenient for me. We both love it. I also use it if I want to show something to my son because I don’t do well describing things. Great app!
Love the app!
LivvyEMG on 7/18/2018
I love this app! My whole family uses it and a lot of my friends. You don’t have to worry about ads or pornography popping up. It’s a safe, family friendly app! :)
Fun app
God, lord and savior on 7/18/2018
More voice modifiers and picture modifiers and it would be mo betta
Not working
The Great Knee on 7/18/2018
Marco Polo is not recording. Please fix.
More Marco aka m.m
dresslersuasn on 7/18/2018
Marco Polo is so much fun!!! I use it to talk to my friend and family all the time!!! And I always talk to my friend Erin all the time!!!
Marco? Polo?
Chi-town 11 on 7/18/2018
Well this app has nothing to do with the childhood game. I was told about this app by a friend. I hesitated because I didn’t want another app that may require too much access. So, I finally took a chance and downloaded the app...and I’m glad I did. I like the fact that you can basically have a conversation with another Edson except it’s delayed. If FaceTime and IMO had a baby, it would be Marco Polo. My only issue is that if a Call comes in, while you’re recording your message, it ends and automatically sends that message video.
bdaven on 7/18/2018
My friend has some beat features that i do not 🤷🏻‍♀️ she can send pictures and emojis. I cannot. We both have iOS it’s odd.
cc cycle on 7/18/2018
This great to keep in touch with everyone. Love it.
no major pain on 7/18/2018
I haven’t been able to talk to a friend in a while, but this gives my a chance to see and talk to her!!!! I’m so happy that I found this app!!!
❤️Awesome App❤️
Sincerelyrhonda on 7/18/2018
Such an awesome app! Better than texting, Marco Polo allows you to see the people you love. There's no time limit on the videos sent and they don't disappear.
Connecting is Energizing!
TroyBertelsen on 7/18/2018
I got to show my mom my clean-shaven face and invite a few friends to our next gathering in a few short minutes! Efficient and Energizing!
Marco Polo is awesome
gabby utt on 7/18/2018
Fun app can chat with your friends and have a fun time . Definitely recommend 🤣
vzhsbshshsvdvdhshsvsvshsb on 7/18/2018
This app is amazin!
Why store the videos, Marco?
Bradshanh on 7/17/2018
Like the app a lot but don’t understand why they store the videos on their server.
Background noise
nousjwienekw on 7/17/2018
I’m using the iPhone X and my voice can barely be heard. Way too much background noise. I have tried killing the app, turning off and on, as well as deleting the app and re downloading and nothing
Need more face filters please
njosieb on 7/17/2018
I would just like more face filters please Thanks!
Like MP but want sending video capability
GigiLane on 7/17/2018
I like Marco Polo but also wish I could save and email the videos
Don’t get this app!
rrr472 on 7/17/2018
This app sends invites to your contacts without permission.
AJ (yes it's my real name) on 7/17/2018
Not sure how to use this quite yet, slow learner!!
Love this app!
UnwrittenT on 7/17/2018
it’s a total lifesaver being someone who doesn’t drive. The only thing I could recommend is a basic block, mute, report and invisible status features. Also it has frozen and glitched if a video was too long. Making interface (filters, likes/hearts and other reactions to other’s Polos) easier to access would be great. Keep improving!
Petuniaface on 7/17/2018
I love Marco Polo! I have a couple suggestions though: 1. You should be able to delete only one part of your doodle not the whole thing 2. You should do an update (even if it’s very moderate) more often it will make people motivated to come on Over all I think Marco Polo is an amazing app and I recommend it to others!
Love it
Xdrcy on 7/17/2018
It so helps the distance between my son and my grandson. My grandson loves to watch the old videos I’ve recorded it makes him feel like his Nana is taking to him right at the moment.
Love this app
buttxrack on 7/17/2018
I play soccer and i travel from the usa to europe mexico south america canada etc. and it makes my life easier it is way better than imessage and snapchat and all the other apps💗
Not bad
Rupaul's Dragrace on 7/17/2018
I wish there was a FaceTime feature and a picture feature as well.
Love this app
BooButt21 on 7/17/2018
So awesome
Marco Polo
foregivepeople# on 7/17/2018
Hey this app is very good and excellent because you can talk to your family and friends. And it's so fun you can even change your voice you should get it it's very good
Love it!!
Ewing Man on 7/17/2018
It's awesome and love it!!
My Emojis Don’t Exist
MrsNeicy70 on 7/17/2018
I really enjoy this app and staying connected to certain people while being able to see them but I don’t have the emojis (😀❤️🙏👍) at the bottom of others videos so I don’t feel I’m getting the full experience on my iPhone.

This is quit fun once you get the hang of it!!!
I like it.
Luis from Hartford, CT on 7/17/2018
I like it in that it's like a video text message and it's quick
Love this app!!!
Lilys Mommy on 7/17/2018
I love this app because it has helped me stay closer to my friends and family when I’m away. I think that more and more people should have this app to reconnect with loved ones all over the world
Wooshing Noise Began
CBGfoto on 7/17/2018
I loved this app until recently when the clips I made began making a wooshing noise that makes it almost impossible for anyone to hear my polos. This doesn’t happen with my friends’ clips and doesn’t happen if I record a Snapchat video or any other type of video; it’s isolated to the Marco Polo app. I really wish the sound would stop happening on my clips so I could use this app more again.
Very impressed
Brandyeee on 7/17/2018
I was having issues with my Marco Polo app. I contacted support and told them about it. They were able to tell me how to fix the problem. Also they responded really quickly and they were friendly. Shout out to Cody for being awesome.
Missing features
ButtaBabee on 7/16/2018
I love the app, but I don’t get all of the same features as other users I talk to. Why is that?
LisaeMac on 7/16/2018
In any community or company the key is communication. Marco Polo is helping us get one step closer then text or 140 characters. We "all" have to learn to communicate with each other.
Great app
thisnicknamehasbeentaking on 7/16/2018
Fun way to stay in touch. Works great when connected to WiFi. Would be nice to see the “fun new features” like it says in the updates. It’s been months and it looks the same. More response buttons besides 😄❤️🙏👍 maybe 😡💔👊👎 for starters. Maybe texting feature to type during live messaging. Let’s see some weekly fun new features and I’ll give you 5 stars.
Enjoy the app.
Timberwolves fan on 7/16/2018
I love this app great way to message people and see them at the same time, however, being visually impaired makes it a challenge to see if anyone has left me a message. That does not seem readily available with voiceover of if that could be changed it would be wonderful! Thanks
Marco Polo is just the coolest app
wjdillon on 7/16/2018
I didn’t have any idea how much enjoyment I could have with an app. Thanks Megan for turning me onto it
I wonder about a couple things..
88Junglegina88 on 7/16/2018
Number 1, does this work across countries? And do I have to add someone’s phone number to add them as a friend or is there a way to add them by a user name if they are already a Marco Polo user?
