Path launches separate Path Talk messaging app for iOS, Android

updated 11:48 am EDT, Fri June 20, 2014

Promises messages will disappear within 24 hours

Social network Path has spun off its chat functions into a separate app for iPhone and Android users, Path Talk. One of the app's key features is security; although messages won't vanish instantly, Path is promising that they'll be deleted from servers 24 hours after delivery. Another feature is Ambient Status, which can be used to tell Path contacts when a person is nearby, traveling, or even when their device is low on battery.

Other options include more general status updates, group chats, and the ability to share movies, music, maps, photos, videos, locations, and voice messages. The app also has some custom stickers, and swiping someone's name in the message list will nudge them into responding or acknowledge a sent message.

Both the iOS and Android apps are free downloads. The former requires an iPhone or iPod running iOS 7, while the Android app supports phones running Android 4.0.3 or later.
