How to Find Live Streams Right Now on YouTube
is the other person seeing you when you join a live stream on badoo??
You can see the online status of another user in ‘People Nearby’, your ‘Connections’ or on their profile. A green dot next to their name means they’re online now and an orange dot means they were online recently. Badoo users can choose if they would like to have their online status shown or not.
Badoo plans to drop the swipe from its dating app as it tests live video broadcasts – TechCrunch
Is it time to swipe left on the swipe? Badoo, a UK-based dating app with some 388 million users globally — whose majority-owned app Bumble is currently being sued by Tinder in part for its use of swiping — says that it will be removing the gesture from its own app as a way to let users browse profiles. In its place, the company says it is rolling out a new feature called Badoo Live — live video broadcasts to help people show off their personalities on the platform in a more authentic way, after its users said they were losing interest in swiping.
“We are testing the removal of our ‘encounters’ feature, as our research shows that people now value real life interactions and want to see more of the person behind the profile picture,” Andreev said to TechCrunch. “Badoo Live, launching soon, will give our users the chance to let their true personalities shine through; interact in real time and ultimately, form more genuine connections.”
Bumble, it alleges, “copied Tinder’s world-changing, card-swipe-based, mutual opt-in premise,” among other accusations related to similarities between the two apps’ designs. Bumble has responded with its own suit. (To complicate things, it seems that Badoo is exploring a sale, and Tinder’s owner has tried to buy Bumble, but so far these two have yet to make a match.)
Badoo’s research covered 5,000 respondents, among whom 74 percent said they were looking for more “real-life dating experiences” and 68 percent said they “dislike swiping,” which they perceive as a shallow way of interacting. Broadcasts, Badoo found, were deemed by 83 percent of respondents as a more comfortable indicator of whether they would want to meet someone.
Users will be able to send messages during a live session, which appears to work on a principle similar to Facebook Live, where people can catch widely broadcast streams as they happen, or watch them in playback mode. Once a match is made, users can start a live video chat with each other (a feature launched last month).Badoo says that users can access live streams by clicking on the Badoo Live tab and watch live streams that are broadcasting during that moment. In testing currently, the feature will be rolled out this summer.
