“Classmates” are planning this summer to launch a new app for videostreaming OK Live for iOS and Android. About this at the conference VideoDays said the head of the project “Live” social network Marina Krasnova. Screenshots of the iOS version of the app posted by the Vc resource.
OK Live externally resembles a Periscope application that belongs to Twitter. “Classmates” noted that the Russian service is entirely tied to the social network video platform, and the stream will be broadcast in the news feed on behalf of users and groups.
Unlike the increasingly popular Periscope, videos recorded during live broadcasts, stored in the social network as long as the user does not want to remove them. Periscope by default, stores the video record in the video just 24 hours, after which the roller disappears.
During the broadcast the user will see the number of viewers who are watching it in real time, the names of friends and comments. Unwanted people you can block by pressing the corresponding button in the profile. Broadcast can last no longer than 8 hours.
At the event she spent the first stream using the platform of social network. “Mobile app OK Live — the logical development of the video platform “Classmates”, it is bound up with the social network” — said a top Manager. According to her, the live video social network will be accessible later from any device.
