The beginning of the year is usually a time to plan and to recover from the celebrations of the holiday season. For many people, it is also a time when nostalgia kicks in and if you are far away from your family and friends, you are more likely to feel the blues. Very few people can afford to get on a plane whenever they miss someone, but thanks to advanced messaging apps like Tango, you can see your loved ones and interact with them, no matter how far away they may be.
Tango is a versatile communication app that is used by over 200 million people around the world. What makes Tango special within the world of messaging apps, is the fact that it offers an extensive range of possibilities to enhance your communication experience. Apart from video calls and messages, Tango provides the possibility of playing games, sharing music, sending photos and much more. It has become the favourite option for people who want to challenge the distance and have fun with friends and family. Furthermore, Tango lets you make new friends online thanks to its social features.
What does Tango offer?
Tango works with Android, Blackberry, iOS, Kindle and Windows. This extensive compatibility ensures that you can get in touch with other users, regardless of the device they own. Tango lets you call, send video messages, or set group chats and calls across different platforms, which is a convenient feature to catch up with all your friends or to organize long distance business meetings. It is also possible to switch between voice and video calls seamlessly. Tango suits many situations and it makes communication simple, but its main appeal is that it offers many options to bring fun to a conversation.
If talking is not enough, you can play games and share music using Spotify. Tango lets you feel closer to your friends as it gives you the possibility of interacting with them in multiple ways. You can laugh together and remember old times while exchanging funny clips, songs that you love or interesting links. With Tango you can also send animations or stickers during a video chat, record video messages and enhance the photos you want to send using the filters available. The cool effects that the app offers, enable you to make your video chats truly unique.
Social and Communication features
Tango can be downloaded for free (although there are multiple in-app purchases such as e-Cards and flirty packs) and it can be set up within seconds. Its interface is not only appealing, but also very easy to use. Tango supports high quality video and phone calls on 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi. You can also send unlimited messages without a cost and you don’t need to log in every time you want to use the app because it is always connected. Tango also works as a social network where you can personalize and update your profile status and picture.
Tango is exciting and smart, and it lets you connect with users who share not only your location, but also your interests. The app uses location services to identify people in your area and gives you the option to comment and like their profile pictures. Keep in mind that by default, your Tango profile is public. Users who prefer to protect their information from strangers, can set their profile to private and turn off location services. However, your username and profile picture will remain public and when location services are turned off, the app regularly sends reminders to get this option back on, which can be rather annoying.
Since the app is designed to be a fun and dynamic way to be social online, you can expect functions that encourage you to interact with the Tango community. For instance, there is an option to find “Popular People”. This provides access to all the public information that popular users have available and you can also see their display picture. If you want to chat with them, you can upgrade to the Premium Discovery subscription for $9.99 USD. Tango also lets you access content that interests you (news, sports, music, entertainment or lifestyle) and you can follow your favourite brands to get their updates.
While Tango can be enjoyed by all kinds of users, the app is hugely popular amongst teenagers who love its vibrant design, social features and amusing add-ons. Those who prefer a basic and effective way to communicate, may feel overwhelmed with all the social features, but if you are looking for an app that offers a broad range of options to make your online conversations more entertaining, Tango is the ideal solution.
