Dubsmash is a mobile messaging app that lets you record videos saying famous quotes.
Dubsmash is a mobile messaging platform that lets users communicate in an entirely new way: by recording videos of themselves dubbed over famous quotes. Users can message in one-on-threads or in larger group chats, and each feed contains a combination of text and video messages. The video messages are different than typical messaging apps in that each one contains a famous quote along with a “selfie video,” presumably of someone reciting the lines. It’s a funny, entertaining way to juxtapose your own video with the audio recording of something that’s recognizable to everyone in the chat and applicable to the conversation.
The quotes are taken from a variety of sources, including TV shows, movies and songs. All of them should be fairly well-known to anyone with a decent degree of pop culture knowledge. Creating a Dubsmash is also incredibly easy, as all you have to do is select from one of these quotes and then record your short video. The app organizes quotes in various folders that relate to the theme that you’re looking for, and it also includes a list of the trending, most popular clips. Dubs can also be saved to your phone’s photo gallery or shared via Facebook Messenger and Whatsapp from directly within the app. Dubsmash, which was created in Berlin, is currently available on iOS and Google Play.
