live streaming

Live stream any app from your phone on Mirrativ app (beta)

The race for the best live-streaming app in the market is definitely on. From Meerkat and Twiiter-owned Periscope with their social media live broadcasts, to Twitch’s gaming livestream community, to Facebook’s celebrity livestreams. But while they can lifestream videos and games, there aren’t that many (or any at all) that can show other people in real time what you’re doing on your mobile device. Mirrativ may be that innovative livestream app to rule them all.

YouTube Gaming is a meta-channel for gamers, and an app too

YouTube is now launching a dedicated meta channel – that is, a collection of channels – that is all about gaming and gamers. It’s called “YouTube Gaming” and it features over 25,000 game-related pages which include device manufacturers, gaming accessory makers, and game developers. It will also include the even more numerous gaming-related channels in YouTube.

TuneIn Radio now offers premium service for $7.99 a month 

Monetizing on free music or radio streaming services has always been a tricky point with consumers and the services themselves. While of course people would want to choose the free version over a paid one, the trick is to offer something premium and attractive to convince people to switch to a subscription service. TuneIn Radio, which brings you not just music but podcasts and radio programs as well, is offering a new Premium Service for its users and sports fans in particular may be happy.

Comcast’s Xfinity Share streaming app now available for all Xfinity users

Live streaming now is not just about binge-watching on Netflix or Hulu. With the advent of such apps like Periscope and Meerkat, Facebook’s foray into Live sessions for celebrities, and even gamers streaming their gameplay, users want the ability to share their most important moments with people who matter, and they want to do it live. Comcast a few months ago launched their own live streaming service to limited users, but now, all Xfinity subscribers will be able to use the service and app as well.

YouTube Live Broadcast announced, ready to beat Periscope and Meerkat

Google has just introduced YouTube Live Broadcast. It's a new special feature on the recently announced Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 from Samsung. So it's another live streaming platform but making it different from the other available programs out there is the fact that anyone can simply watch a live broadcast on YouTube without having to download a special app. The videos are beamed from a mobile device straight privately or publicly to people by only accessing a YouTube page.

YouTube Gaming is Google’s version of vicarious gaming

The social aspects of gaming have evolved quite strangely as Google itself recalls. It first started out with sharing controllers or keyboards at home, which later gave way to LAN parties and now online multiplayer, though controller sharing has also become virtual, like Sony's Share Play feature. The strange part comes from the new breed of social activity that has grown around gaming that doesn't involve playing the game at all. Let's Play videos, walkthroughs, speedruns, and the like. Google is now going to capitalize on that trend with YouTube Gaming, a corner of YouTube's world that's dedicated specifically to dethrone Twitch.

Live broadcast app Periscope now available on Android

Months after it initially launched, on the iOS app obviously, the live broadcast app Periscope has now finally arrived on Android. Unlike their comeptitor Meerkat, which came to this platform stage by stage from testing to beta to full, they have released the fully functional (hopefully) version their first time around. Through the app, you can watch and record live broadcasts that you can share with the world or you can share only to those that you want to see your recorded event.

MixRadio finally expands to Android, partners with HTC and Adidas

One of the more popular music streaming services today, MixRadio, has just announced that it will expand into other areas and try to capture the rest of the mobile world. MixRadio wants to bring the service to iOS and Android after previously being available only on Windows Phone. It hopes to rival the likes of Spotify, Tidal, and Rdio. In case you don't know, MixRadio started as Nokia Music which was renamed to Nokia MixRadio but things soon had to change after Microsoft purchased Nokia's mobile division.

Meerkat is now officially out of beta for Android

We still haven't heard a peep from Twitter's Periscope since they said they're working on it (that was last month), but its arch rival Meerkat is several steps ahead of them in the Android market. Just a few hours ago, they announced that the live video streaming app is finally out of beta and is officially live on the Google Play Store. The developers have been pretty fast in moving the app from the testing stage to beta and out of it in just a span of a few weeks.

Xfinity Share app lets you livestream on to your TV

There may be livestreaming apps like Periscope (still not on Android) and Meerkat (now on Android beta) now available to showcase live events, but what if you just wanted a select group of people to be able to view this live video? If you're a Comcast subscriber, there is now an app that will let you do so, for your loved ones to be able to see what's going on at a birthday party, a family dinner, even a wedding, even when they're far away.
