live streaming using hang wLive Streaming using Hang w/ couldn’t be easier with the recent up date from MEDL Mobile to version 2.1

When Hang w/ was first released in March 2013 users were asking for more integration, more simplification and more features and Andrew Maltin CEO, Dave Swartz CCO and the rest of the team were listening.  First Hang w/ was updated to 2.0 and now 2.1 has arrived with all the new features added to the mix.

What does this mean – Live Streaming using Hang w/

Hang w/ is a free live streaming platform that was born out of the need to prove that people are real, in real time – no more being fake on social media as Celebrities use Twitter teams to tweet for them or post updates to Facebook its time to show themselves and get social.  Not even just celebrities but everyone, including you!

Hang out with a celebrity or become a celebrity

With Hang w/  which just stands for Hangwith/(your name)  you can hangout with anyone live streaming a video, you can talk them during the live streaming via text, and or go back to look at it another time.  You can alos *like” the broadcasts, if you like it.   You need never miss a live stream simply by setting your phone to send a push  notification when anyone that you are following goes live.

With the new features you have –

  • – Longer Broadcasts  (I believe up to 9 minutes) 
  • – Broadcast Directly to Facebook
  • – Broadcast loading enhancements
  • – Optimized live stream to Facebook
  • – Archives can now be shared to Facebook
  • – Added blocked users management
  • – Bug fixes and optimizations

There are loads of celebrities already live streaming using Hang w/ here are just a few…

  • • Timbaland
  • • Kaskade
  • • Chad Ohcocinco
  • • Dillon Francis
  • • Chief Keef
  • • Ali Landry
  • • Urijah Faber
  • • Jamie Kennedy

 

Will I see inappropriate comments or live streams on Hang w/?

There was a worry about Porn on Vine for a while, and now Vine has (is it just me that thinks this?) mostly not so great videos I’m hoping that Hang w/ will keep up with the flags and get rid of the rubbish quickly.

Hang w/ accounts will be suspended if flagged as objectionable by users, if found to be in violation of the Terms of Service.

You need to be careful that your live streams don’t contain

  • Hate speech or rudeness
  • Bit of your body no one wants to see
  • Anything perverse
  • Crimes
  • Basically as they say, anything you wouldn’t want your mum to see!

I love that! 🙂

To start Live Streaming using Hang w/

Hang w/ is so simple to set up.  First you need to create your own channel –  set up your profile, you can add to it Facebook or Twitter – add your profile picture, your real name and a user name.  You need to have your email address verified before you can start to live stream though.

Its easy to find people you want to follow by using the categories, or search and you can watch their previous broadcasts from their profile.

I like the Broadcasting Now button as you don’t need to be following these people you can just click this and it takes you to a selection of people that are actually live streaming right now which is very exciting.  However when I just looked there was just one person that was watching TV, not so exciting however, and unusual it seems as there are hundreds of  thousands of users on this platform. Everyone must be still recovering from New Years Eve!

Hang w/ is available on iOS or Android and you can even watch from Facebook so it couldn’t be easier live streaming using Hang w/  check it out – add me Michelledh – I’ve not started streaming yet but if anything was going to convince me to do so, this is the app to do it.
