Convies Steps Up the Game in the Video Messaging Space

Share Article

Convies was first released on the beginning of April and got much attention for its new take on video messaging. In the latest release, Convies introduces a new way to broadcast short text messages and comments on videos to a group of people.

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.

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.

For a demo of the new feature:
