Formerly Bubble Motion, Bubbly Surpasses 30M Users and Launches Version 3.0 of its Popular Social Voice App
Company gives app a facelift with improved design for easier content sharing and discovery, and new filters for more creative and humorous posting possibilities
Coming off of a record first quarter in terms of both revenue and user growth as its leading voice social network exceeds 30 million users, Bubble Motion is taking on its consumer-facing name, Bubbly, to represent the entire company and service. Along with its fresh new look, Bubbly is announcing the launch of version 3.0 of its smartphone application, which will offer a revamped interface and brand new atmospheric filters for playful posting.
Bubbly is a social voice service where users can share their voice with the world through short recordings, or Bubbles, with their friends, fans, and followers via any mobile phone – be it a smartphone or simpler feature phone.

Version 3.0 of the app introduces redesigned interfaces for the Home feed, Discover page, and record function, which make sharing and finding relevant audio content easier than ever before. Also included in the app refresh are new background filters like ‘Coffee Shop,’ ‘Clubbing,’ and ‘Bombay,’ that allow users to add an atmospheric soundtrack to their spoken voice. These filters are in addition to the extremely popular voice altering filters already in the app such as ‘Helium’ and ‘Echo Cave’ that Bubbly users love. Sharing audio messages on Bubbly is simple and easy – people just push a button on their phone to record a message, choose a filter to personalize the sound and vibe, and post to their page.
A unique aspect of Bubbly is that the service offers access to voice recordings from actors, sports stars, comedians, musicians, and other celebrity bloggers, so users can connect with the stars they love in a more personal and authentic way. Celebrities already using the service include Rio Ferdinand of Manchester United, Amitabh Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra of Bollywood fame, Vidi Aldiano of Indonesia, and many more.
“There are a lot of exciting changes going on for Bubbly right now as we continue to expand into new markets, acquire new users at a phenomenal rate, and maintain our edge as a cross-platform social service that accommodates the over 90 percent of more than four billion consumers in emerging Asian markets that are still using feature phones. Most social services have chosen to ignore this massive market, but it excites us that we’re able to bridge global gaps by allowing users from both smartphones and feature phones to post voice messages, like, and comment on each other’s posts,” said Bubbly CEO Thomas Clayton.
To match its remarkable acceleration, Bubbly has beefed up its management team significantly with the hiring of three new product and engineering executives. The team added Silicon Valley product veteran David Sloan to head the apps products, former Rocket Internet Asia CTO Matteo Pelati to head platform engineering, and former Fusion Garage CTO Andrew Alcock to head apps engineering.
Bubbly decided to drop the Bubble Motion name in order to unify its company name and consumer service brand.
