With Facebook, Periscope and YouTube, dominating livestreaming nowadays, it’s hard to think that any other platforms have much success. And yet, live-streaming app Live.ly, has actually reached 2 million downloads in just over two weeks of being online.
Live.ly is a “sister app” to musical.ly which has seen incredible success lately, and includes features like live-streaming with “real-time reward mechanisms and a follower count”. New features will also include a Virtual Gift System which “provides monetisation opportunities for users who want to buy digital gifts”. This is not unlike Twitch’s new Cheering feature, which also uses animated stickers for users to send their favourite streamers.
