Marco Polo is a communication app that combines social media elements like texting and video chats. Unlike other social media platforms, Marco Polo focuses on human interactions instead of likes and follower count.

This social platform is easy to use, and user privacy is assured when using the app. Users can also enjoy one-on-one conversations or chat in groups, depending on the membership plan.

With Marco Polo Plus, you can unlock premium features like advanced playback options, voice chats, and custom emoji reactions. You can also buy ‘passes’ for friends and family.

Our QA specialists were fascinated with this unique app, so we decided to check it out and test the features for bugs. Here is our detailed bug report for Marco Polo for iOS.

The Marco Polo app provides an opportunity for personal, face-to-face communication with tone and context. It is a cross-browser service that allows users to communicate in groups or private conversations. The app has some fun filters and uses cloud storage. The main functionalities look great, but I found some issues. Validation is flawed, and the calendar shows invalid dates. I hope they fix these bugs to improve user experience.
