Galyia from Moscow and Elena from Mountain View are our Bisters of the month.
I interviewed them on Bistri to know a little bit more about them and their experience of Bistri so far.
When did you start to use Bistri?
We started to use Bistri a few month ago, in March 2013
How do you use Bistri?
We use Bistri almost everyday to contact our relatives all around the world and also to keep in touch with our friends connected to Facebook and “Вконтакт” (Russian Facebook) thanks to Bistri.
What do you like about bistri? Why are you using Bistri more than another service?
Obviously the simplicity, we are not computer experts. On top of that, it’s free and there is nothing to install. We really like the possibility to use Bistri on mobile phones and touchpads. The conference quality is also higher compared to the other services we tried.
What new feature would like Bistri to develop to make your life easier?
Conference with more than 4 persons could be a plus !
Share your love for Bistri and be our next bister of the month !!

New Bistri App for Android — for Cool Kids Only
Bistri is thrilled to unveil the redesign of their new Android app—now with a sleeker interface and a timeline-style dashboard. It will be in private beta mode (http://beta.mobile.bistri.com) for one more month, but will be unleashed in January 2014.
Bistri App for Chrome = Piece of Cake
Once you download the Bistri app from the Google Chrome Web Store, you will be able to launch it from your desktop. It will run outside the browser and behave exactly as a desktop application —what more could you ask for?
Bistri and Google Glass — True Love?
Google Glass is the new frontier… and Bistri is trailblazing! Bistri is proud to be the first WebRTC video-calling application for Google Glass. Now there’s no need to log in or have a Google Plus account in order to enjoy one click, free video calling on your favorite pair of smart glasses.
Bistri’s telecommunication platform is based on WebRTC, an open-source voice and video technology for Web-based real-time communications and supported by industry leaders like Google, Mozilla and Opera. And unlike some other video services, Bistri calls are encrypted which makes it safe from snooping!
