Glide combines the concepts of WhatsApp with Skype, enabling users to send short videos of themselves. It has become a popular communication tool for the hearing impaired, who use it for sign language messaging.

The app has 20 million registered users.  The company hopes to soon offer instant subtitles for sign language, and the ability to convert text into visual graphics.
