Live video-stream app Meerkat graduated to a stable build this morning with its version 1.0 release, after a very short beta period. The premise of the app is simple. It allows you to live stream video from your phone to all your Twitter followers at once with one simple step.
Simply press “Stream” and your live stream is instantly shared and shows up on your followers’ Twitter feeds. If your followers have the app, they get a push notification, allowing them to watch the stream live, comment and interact with it via the app. The rules of Meerkat are pretty simple and they are as follows.
- Everything that happens on Meerkat happens on Twitter.
- Streams will be pushed to followers in real time via push notifications.
- People can only watch it live. There are no reruns.
- You can save your streams to your phone, but Meerkat will never keep them.
- Watchers can retweet any stream to their followers in real time.
- Everyone can watch on web.
- Be kind.
It’s really that simple. So if you’re using the app, be mindful of what you’re live-streaming. We have a QR and download link below. Enjoy!
