This is Wave
This is how we roll
Grab your smartphone and share LIVE locations between friends. The possibilities to use Wave are as endless as the plans you make: get-togethers with friends, festivals, big sport events, date nights, trips, outdoor sports, private business meetings, family safety...basically whenever you want to meet up with someone or you need to know where someone is. 100 % privately. Always.
Wave was born in Madrid, Spain in 2014 and it was commercially launched in 2015 after the Founders CEO Manuel De La Esperanza and COO Luis Gelado noticed in a daily situation struggling while waiting for a colleague that there was no real solution in the geolocation app market – a huge orphan market, a huge opportunity.
Wave has now a talented team of more than 20 employees, daily traffic in more than 190 countries and millions of happy users around the world (and counting!).
A Simplistic Approach on Location Sharing
What makes Wave different? Wave has always relied on its core values: privacy, real time, limited duration, top notch tech and impressive UX/design. There are some competitors and big players in the market who share the same vision with us but none of them share the same approach or the same core values.
Welcome Temporary Sharing
We implemented a new feature to let the non-wavers to experience some of the features without installing the app so that meeting is easier for all on the go. Life gets hectic from time to time…
Our new version deserves a fresh, new web! You can check out the main features, the most common use cases, videos, get in touch with the Wave Team and much more.
And this one is fast! We believe there is no time to lose when you are meeting someone important…that’s why the chat goes as fast as you can type.
We have a new blog now, too. Subscribe on blog.waveapplication.com and we will keep you posted about Wave, other cool aps, start ups and new technologies.
Renewed Group Features
Now any participant of any open wave can start a group by adding new members. Up to 10 people!
Send audios and pics
We completed our super fast chat! You can now send voice messages to your contacts when you are walking and send images in your groups or conversations.
Estimated Time of Arrival
Now you can easily see the ETA (estimated time of arrival) to each of your friends on the map just by tapping their pics. You can also naturally see the ETA to the meeting point.
Long Press Meeting Point
Where to meet up? Set an editable meeting point by pressing your finger on the map. Everyone in the session can easily spot it, modify it if needed and see the estimated arrival time.
Users can open unlimited sessions to stay connected to their loved ones, a hit between our users. Every session can expire selecting ‘stop’.
Call an Uber to arrive to your destination
Is your destiny too far? Tap on the meeting point options and call an Uber. If you have the app it will redirect you, otherwise a link will open in the browser.
Navigate to the meeting point
Easy and fast, navigate to the meeting point without opening any other app. All you need to stay connected and meet your friends is Wave.
