New LooxcieLive App Streams Live Video from Any iOS or Android Mobile Device
Looxcie, the maker of the first ever mobile-connected hands-free video cam and video service, stated that its newly released LooxcieLive app can stream live video from any iOS or Android (News
) mobile device.
The free mobile app works on both the front and back cameras on the smartphones and tablets, letting users stream live broadcast with just their mobile devices in real time over 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi networks.
The new version of the LooxcieLive app no longer requires a Looxcie hands-free video cam to start a live broadcast.
Looxcie also unveiled the "Looxcie App for Facebook (News
)," using which one can facilitate his or her live broadcasts to be viewed over a Facebook page. One of the things that makes the LooxcieLive app stand out from other video streaming options is that it lets users choose to invite one or more friends to a private broadcast - including Facebook friends.
The Facebook version of the app reportedly broadens the streaming community, enabling both live and recorded video broadcasts to be shared, explored and viewed on the world's most popular social network.
"Looxcie's mission is to make it easy for people to share their life through video. With LooxcieLive supporting the front and back camera on a smartphone, and by expanding video sharing to Facebook, we have created a way to make live video streaming and viewing easier and more engaging for anyone with a smartphone," said Romulus Pereira, CEO at Looxcie. "Looxcie has created an ecosystem by developing a complete, end-to-end experience, from device to apps to servers and back again, so that we are extending the reach of sharing and trial to a much broader audience."
Notable features of LooxcieLive include private broadcasts, allowing users to invite one or more friends to watch their broadcast while public broadcasts lets the whole world watch it; Broadcast storage, or live broadcasts stored in the cloud to let users and their friends watch it later; Push to Talk, allowing real-time interaction directly with the broadcaster along with fun and witty audio commentary; Text Chat, so users can share comments with other viewers; and Facebook sign-in, requiring a Facebook user name and password to get started sharing live broadcasts.
