This isn’t surprising with the hype around streaming apps like Meerkat in recent times.
The new updates mean that you can stream videos live to viewers while they are being filmed and they will be available immediately for playback on Facebook when the stream has stopped. It’s not necessary for people to have the Hang w/ app to view the videos either.
Hashtags have been optimized by Hang w/ so that they are functional across all platforms, making sharing and discovery much easier for broadcasters and viewers alike.
The update has also added the option to receive ‘Automatic Activity Notifications’ to alert you when streams go live, or when people comment and like your videos.
Hang w/ has also said that there are improvements in development for Twitter and it is looking at becoming integrated to YouTube and other social media sites.
