Today we’re excited to announce we’re joining forces with Path!
Earlier this year we were excited to meet Path CEO Dave Morin to talk about the future of messaging. We felt combining their person-to-person messaging with our person-to-place messaging would be powerful. Our visions for the future of messaging were completely aligned, and with their launch of Path Talk, it was perfect timing to work together.
When we started TalkTo three years ago, person-to-person communication was happening with SMS, and we wondered why we couldn’t use messaging to interact with the stores, restaurants and places around us, too. We were already texting our friends, so why not text local places to check pricing and availability, get a table or book an appointment?
It worked! You believed in our crazy idea and helped us create a first-of-its-kind service to text any local place for answers. We’re not satisfied though, we’re still obsessed with making it easier to communicate with all the people, places and things in your life. With the launch of Path Talk, we’ve found the perfect way to pull it off!
If you registered your TalkTo account before today, you can continue to use TalkTo as you always have. New users should download the Path Talk messaging app (iTunes and Google Play). It will soon use the TalkTo service to support messaging millions of stores and restaurants in the US and Canada.
We couldn’t have come this far without your feedback, support and love for what we’re doing! You’ve pushed us to deliver a better service, and for that, we are truly thankful.
It’s time to take messaging to a new place!
Stuart, Riley, & the TalkTo Team
