Hiboo messenger lets you read the text while it’s typing

Hiboo messenger, that was launched a couple of days back, will give the opportunity to read a friend’s message starting from the first second of typing.

The app is free and is available in AppStore.

Hiboo was developed by a multinational team in Great Britain. One of the team members is Arthur Kolayan.

He told Itel.am that the messenger was developed especially for those people who get nervous waiting for the response, constantly seeing  “…” or, for example, “Vardan is typing...” .

“I think everyone is interested in the fact what their friend is typing for 5 minutes, if at the end, all you get are 4 words. Hiboo gives the opportunity to communicate with the speed of mind while typing, without any delays”, said Arthur Kolayan.


They had thought about Hiboo in 2014 during TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon where the team won. iOS beta version of the app was launched at the end of last year- November 3, within Web Summit that took place in Dublin.

“Seeing what your friends are saying while they are still typing opens new horizons for texting. Time is everything now: there is nothing more valuable than that, especially for the new generation. New generation wants to communicate in real time. It’s true that WhatsApp, WeChat, Facebook Messenger are considered to be fast messengers, but only Hiboo gives the opportunity to exchange thoughts in no time”, stressed Arthur Kolayan.

Currently, Hiboo is available in 14 languages: new languages will be added soon. Arthur Kolayan thinks that Armenian might be among those languages.

The Android version of the messenger is estimated to be launched in April.
