Why we made Emerald

  • Emerald was built to help people meet each other online. In the modern world it's so fast paced it's often really hard to meet new people face-to-face.

    That's where the Emerald meeting and messaging platform comes in. We wanted to give people a remote way to meet similar people with ease and that's why we built Emerald around the idea of matching people to conversations based on the interests that they share.

    There's a huge demand for a website or network that helps connect you to people in a platonic way; current random video communication, internet conference and virtual chat platforms aren't working. They're full of participants that are bots, have poor device connection and are often poorly maintained. Emerald is a software that wants to change that by offering our users a proper webcam platform to meet and chat to people.

    Whether it's just friends you're looking for or something more. You can find it on our Emerald app at the click of a button.
