Glide – Smartwatch Video Messaging

glide

Millions of folks are expected to carry a smartwatch with them in the future. You can already use a smartwatch to keep up with your notifications and track your activity. Wouldn’t it be nice if smartwatches could handle video messaging better? Glide, an Israeli startup, has put together a video that shows how video communications on a smartwatch could work. The app was tested on a pre-release Android smartwatch with a front-facing camera, microphone, speaker, and both 3G and WiFi connectivity.

With this solution, people can watch incoming video messages live and respond from their smartwatch conveniently. It essentially turns your smartwatch into a video walkie-talkie on your wrist. The developers are expected to continue focusing on app development for Android Wear and the Apple Watch in the future.
