Zoog

As parents to young children who desperately tried to get their children to connect with their family members on video, we learned that video communication with children is awful. Kids don't want to FaceTime with their grandparents or anyone for that matter. In order to get kids to engage in conversation they need to be entertained. That's why we created Zoog. Through Zoog's mobile app, anyone can bring a book, or other types of content to life and literally become “part of the story” utilizing AR masks, filters, and other visual overlays. Storytelling is a basic and historic human trait--we have been telling stories since the beginning of time. Hence, we decided to take storytelling, enhance it, and use it as a means to connect people-- through immersive storytelling. Since our launch in late February, we are growing at an average 20% W/W rate in active users. We also recently partnered with Snap to become one of the only companies in the world who have access to their camera technology, bringing our audience the best AR experience in the world. We created Zoog so that even oceans and generations apart, your family can enjoy meaningful moments through immersive storytelling and creative interactions.
