CEO and Founder of BuzzFeed, Jonah Peretti said: Convies is part of an exciting convergence of media and communication where video isn’t just static information but a way to communicate between friends more expressively.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 14, 2014
On April 7th, 2014, Convies released a Vine-like messenger for chatting with groups of friends. The application received a lot of interest in the tech startup community partly for bringing a fresh take on video messaging to the mix but also for being incubated by the very successful New York venture capitalist Lerer Hippeau Ventures.
May 11th - The team has been busy and released 6 new versions during their first month live, but the latest released from just a couple of days ago has been the largest release so far. In this version, Convies introduces a new way to broadcast text messages and video comments to groups of friends.
The feature is a very interesting way to introduce non-video communication into an app that is built from the ground up to be optimized for video. It also shows that the small NY-based team is up for the fight to snatch new users moving into the explosive mobile video space.
