One of communication’s many hangups is the issue of a language barrier. Theoretically, if the world lived with one universal language, communication would be almost effortless. But the fact that it doesn’t, is what makes society beautiful. With diversity comes an understanding of cultures and ways of life— the challenge is bypassing these barriers in any way we can. Ablo makes this possible.
Ablo is a social media application that allows users to communicate with other users in their native tongue. It is a connection with the rest of the world, regardless of language, distance, and time. Users may interact with people from other continents in a no-holds-barred kind of setting. There is no such thing as a language barrier as the application automatically translates the message to the recipient’s dialect. It doesn’t stop there. Taking it a step further from chat, users may also engage in a video call with the app providing translated captions during the exchange.
The app was launched in January 2019 and has been downloaded over 6.5 million times in 180 countries. It is estimated to be making 50,000 friendships daily.
