Mirage allows users to send messages to others within the app, or even outside of the app (via links sent through SMS). In this update, users can create groups of users and start the same disappearing conversations as they would in one-on-one environments, but with a group of multiple people. In addition, users can simply “broadcast” a message, sharing it with multiple contacts at once, but without taking the time to organize these users into a group.
The overall Mirage app allows users to share pictures, text messages, videos and audio messages with their friends, which disappear a few seconds after they’ve been accessed. Users can add text and emoticons to pictures, and other app updates introduce a search bar to the app’s home screen, alongside an inbox for quickly viewing all of the messages in one’s queue.
“The new groups and broadcast features bring a wider experience to Mirage users,” said Mobli CEO Moshe Hogeg, in a statement. “We extended the form of communication, which lets classmates, family, colleagues or any group members share a one-time experience together. Mirage now captures in an even more precise way the essence of human interaction.”
