Janus Friis is among a list of tech and communication experts who have backed the new app Wire, a communication tool that sets out to take everything that is good about the competition, and combine plus add to it.
Wire is essentially a chat service, but it claims to be much more. It provides a video chat service with high end sound quality through your mobile device, as well as Mac computers. But it also gives you the option to message with video from YouTube, audio clips from SoundCloud, or images. If you need to get someone’s attention, you can send them a ping, which will let them know you want to talk without sending a call request and potentially interrupting them.
