Six3′s Free Video Messages for a Generation of Video Natives
LONDON, Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Six3, the free video message app and platform, has announced exciting new capabilities, a deep Facebook integration and enhanced performance. Six3 announced its product innovations on the heels of being chosen as one of the “world’s 100 most promising early stage startups” during the Dublin Web Summit’s START conference.
“We’re very excited to be recognized at START and felt that it was a great time to share this major refinement of Six3′s capabilities. Our goal is to help video messaging reach its true potential as an emotive communication medium by making it as easy, fast & seamless as possible,” said CEO Tim Grimsditch. Six3 is introducing the following features:
Public, Group & Private Messaging
Millions of people have experimented with private video messaging and public video sharing. Until now, they’ve had to juggle different apps depending on who they wanted to communicate with. Six3 makes it incredibly easy to create, send, view and respond to video messages of all kinds. The iPhone app lets users send private, group or public messages all from one incredibly simple interface. Public messages can be shared to Facebook & Twitter feeds. Private messages can be shared to email addresses, Facebook contacts and Six3 contacts.
Facebook Integration Now Seamless
Facebook integration makes it even easier to connect with your friends and family using Six3. Now you can send a private Six3 message to any of your Facebook friends, as well as publically share messages to your Timeline. Furthermore, the likes and comments on your video messages are reflected seamlessly back into Six3.
Performance Improvements Make Six3 Faster
Video messaging pushes smartphones to the limits of their capabilities, and users expect messaging to be fast and simple. The new version of Six3 offers faster loading and navigation times, as well as improved message sending speeds (for example, Six3 delivers video messages 2x faster than other apps with equal video quality).

Six3 is a next-generation video message platform. Our goal is to help people be together, even when they’re apart.
There is a clear opportunity to combine the emotional power of video with the convenience of messaging – as long as it’s fast, good quality and mobile. People’s usage of video chat services is exploding; particularly among younger consumers (37% of US teens now use video chat, according to The Pew Research Center). Simultaneously, the number of phone calls we make is dropping fast as our lives become busier and we adopt more convenient, asynchronous messaging services.
At Six3 we designed an easy way to privately create, send view and reply to video messages. For now, the service works on iPhones, Macs & PCs. But eventually, Six3 will work on all smartphones, internet-connected TVs and even games consoles.
