Tango is a cross-platform messaging program. The program was developed in 2009 by TangoME Inc. TangoME, also founded in 2009, was launched by Uri Raz and Eric Setton. As of 2014
TangoME employed just over 160 people between its Austin, TX, Mountain View, CA, and Beijing, China office though the Beijing office was closed in 2016. Also, as of 2014 Tango had more than 200 million registered users for the program. The Tango application is free to download from the iOS app store or Google Play store and includes video calls, voice calls, texting, photo sharing, and games. Tango is available in 14 languages including Arabic, Chinese, and Turkish for Android and iOS mobile devices. Previously Tango was available for Windows-based smartphones and on computers but those features were discontinued in August of 2015.
The application requires registration to use but has no recurring monthly subscription fees. Tango Live allows for live broadcasts and allows users to follow content creators to see their broadcasts. Viewers of Tango Live broadcasts may purchase and give “gifts” to broadcasters in the form of Tango Diamonds. Tango Diamonds can be collected by broadcasters and later redeemed for cash as a way of monetizing their live broadcasts. These are not generally a recurring subscription however so users may stop at any time. Free accounts, as stated, don’t include any kind of recurring monthly billing and can be cancelled at any time with no minimum subscription term. More information on how to cancel a Tango.me or Tango Live account can be found on this page to assist you in completing the cancellation.
