Emoticast is an award winning technology company working with the world’s biggest artists and record labels (Warner, Universal, Sony...), movie studios, and TV networks (Disney, Fox, Amazon,....) to bring the universe of popular culture to our messaging app partners (Kik, Facebook, Viber, What’sApp,...) in the form of GIFs with sound.
We are winners of the Cannes Silver Lion 2017 - Innovation in Entertainment for Music! Despite texts and emojis, people struggle to provide a fun & personalized communication experience on mobile.
For people who live on messaging and entertainment, and want to up their chat game, Emoticast is the place to go to arm yourself with the most expressive communication tools in the solar system. Unlike BitMoji & GIPHY that only offer basic visual experiences, Emoticast injects the universe of pop culture (complete with sound and music) into the users’ chat stream.
Our investors are industry leaders in music, entertainment and tech. We are on an incredible journey building the future of audio and visual communication - join us!
