In 2017, after recognizing that nearly 70% of the people that use Bubble on a daily basis use it for workplace communication, we began working on a better, more secure, and more feature-rich messaging app that meets the needs and demands of businesses. Later in 2017, the first version of Pronto was released and has since matured into a terrific product with a rapidly growing customer base. Given our business’s finite resources–and to allow our team to more adequately support the growing Pronto customer base–it is no longer feasible to both continuously improve and support both Pronto and Bubble.
Bubble will be officially shut down on April 16, 2021.
- March 17: Begin notifying customers of Bubble shutdown
- March 24: Remove Bubble from app stores. No new downloads.
- April 16: Bubble servers are turned off. Bubble app will stop working.
Pronto is our replacement for Bubble. Both Bubble and Pronto were built on the same original code base, but Pronto has since evolved into a much feature rich app. It does everything that Bubble does, plus:
- Desktop web app
- Task management
- Live Video Meetings
- Background audio on mobile
- Gallery and grid layouts
- Instant message translation
- User notification settings
- Do Not Disturb
- Organization permissions and roles
- Much more…
Pronto is a paid product, but as a long-time Bubble customer we’d be happy to work with you on a free pilot period and reasonable rates for your organization.
We’ve made the migration from Bubble to Pronto very easy. We can migrate any group from Bubble directly into Pronto and preserve all users, messages, files, photos, and videos that were shared. You will be able to keep using those groups in Pronto as you did in Bubble.
If you do not wish to migrate to Pronto, you can still save your photos and videos: Simply go into the settings for a group in Bubble, scroll down to the bottom to see all the photos and videos shared in the group. When you see one you want to keep, tap it, press the share icon in the upper right, and then select “Save Image”.
My business has been running on Bubble to handle team communication. Is there a way for me to get set up on Pronto with minimal disruption to my business?
Yes! Our Customer Success team can help create a Pronto account for your business and migrate your employees and your business’s group/organizational structure from Bubble to Pronto. We can even migrate all your messages, including photos and videos. If you found Bubble useful for work/team communication, you will love Pronto. In addition to all of the core messaging features you’ve enjoyed with Bubble, the Pronto feature set includes video conferencing, task management, instant language translation, and a host of other features that are far better suited at addressing the needs of your business.
