Path Inc., the company behind the Path social network is releasing a messaging app called Path Talk for iPhone and Android. Path Talk is essentially Path’s messaging feature, stripped out and given its own standalone app. Path Talk enables you to mail messages, media, position, plus more to any of the Path friends, and Path claims that whatever you deliver is removed off their hosts inside a day to guard your privacy. Path Talk features a nice iOS 7-friendly UI and looks very fluid.
Path Talk is not so different from messaging in Path proper, but has a few key additions to set it apart. The unique features includes Ambient Status that automatically tells your friends when you are in transit, nearby, or low on battery, messages disappear after 24 hours and Quick Replies to nudge a friend, acknowledge a message, or start a call without ever using a keyboard. The app also shows what music you’re listening to. It’s a lot to automatically share, so the feature has been made to be opt-in.

The social networking also released variant 4.0 of its all in 1 path app for iOS for its users. Path Talk is accessible for free from the iOS App-store.
