So incredibly pumped for this. Been lucky enough to watch @DanielSinger & the rest of the Panda crew build the next generation of digital communication. Panda is like FaceTime, but the effects appear magically based on what you're talking about. The powerful AI-engine understands context and jokes to make the perfect filter arrive instantly. Try to find them all 🤗

Finally, can't wait to check this out!

It's LIVE! Congrats, @danielsinger and team. Curious to hear your thoughts on the future of digital communication, broadly speaking. Animojis and now Memojis are hitting iPhones. I'm curious if this shifts more of our communication to become more avatar based.
Daniel Singer
@rrhoover Thanks Ryan! I think avatars are part of the equation and something we've thought deeply about. I think for avatars to be truly useful they need to go above and beyond being a mask. Not quite sure what apple released or what's in the market now really gets close to what I think we need to have for daily communication. They need to help you tell stories in fundamentally new ways. We'll have more announcements on that space later this summer 😉

This seems like an interesting iteration on top of what Apple are providing with Memojis and FaceTime. The biggest threat here is that Apple develop similar functionality into FaceTime itself with dynamic filters based on words said. This is cool and congrats on the launch, just intrigued if there's anything else on top here that sets Panda apart.

Thanks @nickabouzeid for hunting this!!! Hello Product Hunt 🐼 We’re SO excited to finally share Panda with all of you today! For over a year, we’ve been working on a powerful voice controlled camera that brings your conversations and ideas to life. With Panda, we wanted to develop an entirely new visual tool where you can both create and communicate with your voice. Many products document what happens in the world around us, but they ignore the beautiful worlds that exist in our imaginations. Panda makes those ideas real using augmented reality and the power of voice. Want to become a dinosaur? Just say “Dinosaur.” It’s as simple as that! We can’t wait to hear your feedback and to see what you create! Thank you so much -Daniel

Congratulations @DanielSinger and team! I believe Panda is one of the apps that will fundamentally change communications, hand in hand with Memojis and Animojis. It's really going from 0 to 1. I think Panda is an amazing tool to create engaging content. Look forward to seeing IG stories made with Panda everyday!

In this day and age there's really not a lot that can get an authentic OMG emotion out of me. But this is so cool, it's like magic and the first time I tried it out I was mind blown. Congratulations on building a product that can actually draw these kind of emotions it brought me back to being a kid!Best of luck on your launch day!

It’s here. The hotness. Panda AF. The Belle of the 2018 Social Ball. Not only driven by a team of young geniuses (don’t take that bit lightly, I mean it) but a team of creative, inspiring innovators that have been ahead of the curve since before you saw that curve coming. No riding waves, Panda is making big splashes. I’m excited to see where this space develops and I’m eager to follow this team’s journey as they continue to build groundbreaking technologies that change how we communicate. 🐼 🏆

Looks great team Panda - not sure if anyone else is having a problem but I can’t get past on boarding. When I tap to share camera or mic, the whole app freezes. I’m running on iphoneX...
Gabriel Lewis
@benlumendigital Sorry to see you're having issues, we will look into that screen, and send an update out soon that should fix that! thanks for reporting the 🐛
Ben Harraway
@gabriel__lewis No worries, I hope it's just me! Let me know if I can help with any more info or testing for you guys.
Zach Smith
@benlumendigital I’m having the same problem. Force quitting doesn’t fix that problem either.
Sam Sabri
@benlumendigital I had the same bug. Couldn't get past the onboarding. iPhone X..
Eli Chamberlin
@benlumendigital same problem! iPhone X. Hope y'all can get it patched soon!
Robert Martin
@benlumendigital @elife_is @samsabri @zacitus Hey guys! We just released the Panda 1.1.6 update today in the App Store and believe this onboarding problem should be a thing of the past! Please check it out and let us know if the app works for you now!
Ben Harraway
@elife_is @samsabri @zacitus @brotractor Nope, I'm afraid not. It got a bit further, but crashed after accepting the permissions. On reloading, it went into the app but nothing happens when I say sunglasses, yehaaa, or anything else....
