Marco Polo is a social network application designed and published by Joya Communications in December 2012. The company was founded by a married couple Vlada Bortnik and Michael Bortnik. You most probably heard about them previously if you are a user of the following applications: FlipLip Voice Changer for Messenger with Helium, Robot, Echo and Face effect or Cleo Video Texting for Messenger. Anyway, Marco Polo is the most well-known application made by Joya Communications. It is even listed number 41 in the Social Networking category on Apple Store.

Uncommon social network

How do you imagine a social network? Most likely, it has user profiles, has likes, shares and, of course, advertising. Otherwise, how can a social network make money? However, if we are talking about Marco Polo, then from the above list, only one point turned out to be true - the first one, where the user is registered on the platform. Everything else is not about Marco Polo. Yes, there is no advertising, because the company does not use user data and does not transmit it to advertisers, and, yes, there are no likes or any other manifestations of social comparisons. The application is unique for those who are tired of advertising, social pressure but want to stay in touch and keep in touch with friends.

Video walkie-talkie

Developers position the application as a video walkie talkie. Users can send text messages, media files, and perform video calls in real-time. There are no limits on length and video stored in the cloud. The application is available for download on iOS and Android devices. The app focuses on providing users with the ability to communicate using high-quality video messages. That is why even if your friend uses a device running on another platform, this will not ruin the quality of the video or messages. Please note that Marco Polo was designed to be only used by the closest friends or family members. Therefore, you can search for users only if you know their phone number. The application is fully ad-free, and the developers do not collect your private data.

Although the application is free to install and download, in order to use it, you need to buy a subscription. There are two types:

  • Marco Polo Supporter, which costs $9.99 Monthly.
  • Marco Polo Premium, which costs $9.99 Monthly or $29.99/Annually. This offer is not regular. It is time-limited. To know more information, please, visit the official site.



Marco Polo is a great application for those who are tired of constant and annoying advertising on social networks, but just want to stay in touch with family and friends. Although Marco Polo belongs to social networks, there are no likes or other social comparisons. You can chat with family and friends using video chat, text messaging or send photos.
