That’s right folks — MEDL Mobile has announced the much anticipated release of Hang w/ version 2.0 which includes a lot of new features like the ability to stream video from mobile to Facebook, hashtags, better iOS 7 functionality and much more. By adding Facebook integration, users now have the ability to stream live video from Hang w/ to their Facebook wall. Videos can be viewed or shared by friends, even if they aren’t on a mobile device at the moment. First released in March of this year, Hang w/ allows people to live stream video and chat at the same time. Since then, the developers have worked very hard at bringing new features and fine tuning the system. Another addition worth taking note of is “coins” which can be used to purchase of digital content and goods. We’re unsure when this will be fully implemented, but should be interesting to see how it turns out.
Here’s the full list of what version 2.0 includes:
- Improved video and audio quality.
- Live simultaneous streaming to Facebook and to the web.
- #Hashtags to allow for custom content channels and deeper Twitter integration.
- 3, 6 and 9 minute broadcasting options.
- “Coins” for the eventual purchase of digital content and digital goods.
- Simplified archives for easier access.
- A new robust moderation/monitoring platform and user privacy controls.
- Extensive integration of iOS 7 functionality.
“The mobile social market is growing rapidly,” said Andrew Maltin, CEO. “Live streaming represents an entirely new category and we have our eyes set on being the category innovator and the market leader. Hang w/ 2.0 is our second major step in that direction.”
“I’m so proud of our entire team,” said Dave Swartz, President and Chief Creative Officer. “We took a product that the market clearly embraced – and brought it to a whole new level. The user experience is simplified and a handful of really cool new features have been added to the mix. Everything in 2.0 was a request, and sometimes a demand, from our users – and from the early beta reactions we’ve gotten so far, we think people are going to love it.”
