Path + TalkTo

Today we’re excited to announce that TalkTo is joining the Path Team.

As we were building Path Talk, our vision expanded beyond thinking of messaging as just another way to send a photo or text. We wanted to go deeper, to think of messaging as not just a new and more personal way to communicate with the people in your life, but as a more personal way to communicate with everything in your life: including the places and things that are part of your every day. As we started to think about how to make this happen, we met Stuart and Riley and the team at TalkTo.

TalkTo is the pioneer in place messaging. A powerful new idea that puts a new superpower in the palm of your hands on your smartphone: the ability to send a text message to ANY place around you and get back a text message response in minutes.

Imagine a world where you never have to wait on hold again, and can spend more time with the people you love. Make dinner reservations, book hair appointments, get prices, hours, and check in-store product availability all without ever making a phone call. TalkTo makes this all possible.

How does this work? Don’t the places have to sign up? Therein lies the magic. TalkTo has spent years building software and a service team of TalkTo Agents, who work hard around the clock to get the answer to any question you ask of the places around you. They will pick up the phone and make a call on your behalf if necessary, wait on hold, get the answer, and text it back to you. Making it possible for you to message ANY place around you on day one.

As the Path and TalkTo teams continued the conversation, we both realized that we had a shared vision for creating more personal, meaningful conversations in your life - whether it is with your family and friends, or with the places and things around you - and that it only make sense to work together towards making this vision a reality.

Later this summer, the TalkTo service will be completely integrated as Place Messaging within Path Talk, making it your communication hub for the people, groups, and places in your life. All in one place.
