Bite-Sized News Has Never Sounded Better

Wibbitz, The Startup That Turns News Text Into Videos, Unveils Wibbitz 3.0 With A Redesigned Look And Feel, Powerful New Enhancements Top To Bottom


Israeli startup Wibbitz, leading developer of text-to-video technologies, is announcing Wibbitz 3.0 for iOS with new never before seen features. The fully redesigned app introduces responsive design to news summaries selecting different content for different platforms. The new version also features real voice-over narration for top news stories, as well as the option of a short text summary.

Founded in 2011 by Zohar Dayan and Yotam Cohen, Wibbitz’ technology is based on algorithms that analyse the written body of an article, extract the most interesting information from it, and convert it into a highly engaging video format using Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies. The technology allows users to absorb the content of an article as a short and easily digestible video made up of images, video clips, info-graphics, and text-to-speech.

The new version of Wibbitz features responsive selection of content and optimizes the summaries for the relevant platform and user. For instance, a summary video will look different and feature different content when viewed on an iPhone or viewed on a computer.

Additional new elements in Wibbitz 3.0 include:

  • Real Voice-Over Narration: Top news stories feature authentic narration
  • Reimagined Design: New sleek look, redesigned with card-like articles
  • Intuitive UX & Navigation: Easy to use and operate
  • Effortless Gestures: Swiping right/left to flip between articles

“Wibbitz 3.0 brings one of the most important concepts in modern web design — responsiveness, to video news summaries for the first time. We’ve created a technology that automates the process of video production while also being contextually sensitive,” said Zohar Dayan, Wibbitz’ Co-Founder & CEO.
