Founded in 2005, Mocospace has become the go-to mobile community for gaming. Everyday, over 1M games are played on the Mocospace platform. Today, users generally communicate via instant message, chat rooms, and forums or blogs. Recently, the company decided to add new communication functionality – unlimited video calling for each and every one of its users.
When asked what prompted the decision to add video calling to Mocospace, Justin shared, “We saw that video was becoming more and more an expected functionality of messaging apps. We [Mocospace] are in a constant state of evolution and optimization for our users. Video was a logical next step in continuing to provide a seamless, elevated user experience that enables our users to get the most out of their Mocospace community.”
In choosing Sinch, Justin added that they were looking for a provider who is here to stay, with a great quality product that has the ability to serve 1M+ monthly active users. Luckily, Sinch Video fit the bill!
We asked Justin to comment on the every changing social media landscape. He told us:
“The social media landscape is dominated by a few players, mainly Facebook, Snapchat & Twitter. But you have a number of players that bring new innovations and different approaches to social, whether it’s the type of people or how you can engage. There is always an opportunity to continue to introduce fun, new ways for users to share information, communicate, and ultimately, build relationships.”
For Mocospace, it’s all about community. Communities have staying power and as long as there are people looking for alternatives to the big three players, there will always be room for other platforms to thrive. Beyond finding “your people” or “your activity” Justin believes we’ll continue to see innovations in privacy, how online representation and profiles are managed, and unexpected niche networks.
Justin added, “At Mocospace, gaming and the ability to establish community around a love of gaming is a unique element of our platform. Video is just another meaningful way we can continue to enhance the mocospace user experience.”
Sinch is thrilled to be powering video calling for Mocospace, and we look forward to seeing what the platform will bring its users in the future.
