Hi Guys! Remember us? We were here on Product Hunt 9 months ago. Since then, we’ve been heads down working on an even more powerful and convenient version of the original Tribe. We just released Tribe 2.0 a few hours ago on the App Store and Play Store. We are also announcing our $3m seed round, led by the great folks at Sequoia Capital. Take a quick look at the video we’ve created from our hacker house that efficiently sums up what Tribe 2.0 has to offer our users:
Over the past 9 months since our Product Hunt debut, we have quietly grown the team from 4 to 9 and experimented with different types of technologies. We are continuously testing new messaging patterns, so feedback based on your experiences with Tribe 2.0 is very much appreciated. Go ahead and feel free to send us a few Tribe messages right now, we’d love to chat with you and hear what you have to say! @c @laurent @rymo

@cyrilpaglino @c @laurent @rymo Such a beautiful app to try out and use. Cheers to the team behind. Used on Moto G4 Plus. - Doesn't work on iPhone 5s for some reason - the moment I open the app, the phone becomes unresponsive and the app crash after few seconds.

@cyrilpaglino @c @laurent @rymo I like how it says "improve your appearance" and then his face gets pixelated. But this looks great and congratulations on the seed round!

@adithya First of all, many thanks for the support on the app!! About the iPhone 5s, could you tell me what OS is it running on ? And the crash happens when you're on the Introduction screen right ? You never signing in on the app with this phone right ?

This is one of those rare, really rare, "I didn't know I wanted it until I got it" features. Amazing.

@cyrilpaglino, @ldesserrey - congrats on the launch! The product is beautiful as always 👍 One question: Have you seen any issues with requiring sound/volume for this product? Not that sound is explicitly required, but I don’t get much value out of consuming/sharing on Tribe without audio on. This strikes me as a potential problem, because the vast majority of smartphone usage takes place without sound. This is abundantly clear at Instagram/Facebook, where 80-90% of videos are watched without sound. I suspect that (for social reasons) this will continue until you can broadcast sound directly into your ear without: a) disturbing the people around you (like speakers) b) blocking out ambient sound (like headphones) c) requiring an additional step/plug-in (like headphones) I see this issue on other platforms as well. On SnapChat, what percentage of the time are you communicating via audio (talking, music, etc) vs via visual (photo/video, caption, geo-filters, face-filters, etc)? Anecdotally - I just went through my SnapChat stories, and 0 out of 39 of them required me to turn on audio. The value of the content was in the visual/caption. That’s better for me, because I’m in the office right now and didn’t want to turn on audio (headphones plugged into my laptop, not my phone). Has this been an issue at all? What percentage of Tribe videos are watched with sound on vs. off? Have you considered adding more visual communication tools (text captions, geo-filters, etc)? Curious to hear how you all think about this!

@telenardo I guess that if that feature works as advertised that would be part of the solution: ?
Love the new version.
