The holidays are fast approaching – which means friends and family far away will be waiting to hear from you. If you can’t see them in person – the next best thing is to Tango, of course – and boy do we have a cool new feature announcement for you. Starting today, you can add one more way to make meaningful connections with Tango – turn your phone into a walkie-talkie with our new “Push-to-Talk” feature. Your friend not around to take your call? Simply record audio messages and they’ll automatically play – it’s fantastic for quick back and forth voice messaging, and no typing required!
And it gets better – the holidays are all about sharing your special moments, and video is a great way to keep everyone updated. Grandma waiting to see baby’s first steps around the tree? Eager to share video of the kids taking their first ice skating lesson? If you have an iPhone, now you can upload videos straight from your video gallery – even edit it to include the specific clip you want – and send it right through Tango.
Take a look and try for yourself!
Folks – big news here at Tango…we’re bringing you two incredibly fun new features – Video Messages and Tango Surprises!
Now you can leave a video message if you’re friend doesn’t answer your Tango call. And you can see your video messages by tapping the new “Messages” tab in Tango. And for those using Android, you can send video messages without even calling by long pressing on your friends name!
With Tango Surprises, you can send video animations while in a call to express yourself, entertain your kids, or celebrate a special event. Tap the magic wand located in the upper left hand corners of the screen to check them out!
We have lots in store for these new features coming to you in 2012! Happy holidays from your friends at Tango!
We are very excited to announce that Tango is now available in the Windows Phone Marketplace!
Tango is the first video calling service for Windows Phone and supports front facing cameras on the latest devices coming to market including the Samsung Focus, Samsung Focus Flash, HTC Titan, and HTC Radar. People who have updated their current phones with the latest version of Windows Phone, code named “Mango,” can also use Tango to connect with their family and friends.
Tango for Windows Phone was designed for the platform’s metro UI. People can easily swipe and scroll through the application making the experience simple and fluid.
