Besides new visual elements, the update improves and simplifies the user experience and adds major new features including search, and a feed which shows summaries from recent stre.ams.
The new activity feed allows users to see who has been streaming, new subscribers, and details of the stre.ams you missed such as date, location, views, and likes:
The search and improved user discovery make it easier to find your friends and new stre.amers to follow:
Jeremy Martin, CTO of InfiniteTakes, says the company is now focused on Stre.am’s user experience and upcoming new features:
“Until now we’ve poured our efforts into getting the core video streaming technology right, which has been a massive undertaking. Having that stable foundation in place now, it has been exhilarating to bring the user experience back into focus. This release is far more than a new skin it’s a complete redesign that raises the bar in every way, addresses so much of the user feedback we’ve received, and paves a path forward for some exciting new features. We’ve worked hard to gain our current level of momentum, and you can expect to see a rapid release cycle between now and our non-beta release in the near future.”
Stre.am allows users to broadcast and share life’s experiences by streaming live video on a nonpermanent platform, which can be viewed from any device at http://stre.am, or through the app which is available for both iOS and Android. Video can be discovered by user location and shared through social accounts with only a few seconds of delay. – Read more about Stre.am
