What purpose does the technology serve? Purpose is communication.
How does/did it work? Similar to regular text messaging, you can have a conversation with a single friend one-on-one or in a group chat via video. Record a video message and watch incoming messages instantly or later-whatever is convenient for you! Videos are saved in the conversation and can be accessed later and re-watched. The app is free and compatible with many Apple and Android devices. Can record up to five minutes at a time. Video messages are stored in the cloud, which means they don’t take up storage space on your phone or mobile device.
What is the D/deaf advantage? Great for deaf individuals because it is a much faster mode of telecommunication than video chat, such as FaceTime or creating a video and uploading it to a text message, which either take too long or require both users to be online.
