“Talking is a Lost Behavior”: Messaging for Those In Need of an Ear
As easy as a walkie-talkie, a messaging app is helping you talk more
“We are not just creating a global communication product but also inspiring a global movement to get people talking more through conversations,” says Ricardo Vice Santos, a former Spotify engineer. Ricardo and his co-founder Andreas Blixt began working on Roger, a voice messaging app after Ricardo ran into a pole while he was walking through the streets of Manhattan and texting a friend in Sweden. After the unfortunate incident, Santos and Blixt felt like there should be a simpler, more personal way to communicate than text messaging.
