Your Android Device Just Got Even More Powerful

At Ustream, we’re laser-focused on providing the best experience for our users. Mobile broadcasters are increasingly growing by the numbers, and today, we’ve released a major update to the Android user app.

What’s new for the global users?

  • Users can now manage their own recorded videos (edit title, edit description, edit privacy, play, delete, share)
  • They can also  title their broadcasts (as long as the channel is live)
  • Additionally — and most notably — users can broadcast in “high quality” (640×360, active by default) and “HD” (1280×720) on enabled devices

You may have noticed that we’ve also just partnered with Verizon Wireless (Blog: Ustream collaborates with Verizon).

What’s new on Verizon target devices?

  • Users get a Verizon branded channel automatically, which they can choose to set as default for broadcasting
  • They can also send personal SMS and/or email invites of their broadcasts and videos to selected contacts
  • Broadcasters have the ability to set their broadcasts and videos “personal,” meaning only those can watch who have the link (broadcasts/videos that are set as “personal” never play pre-roll ads for the first 7 concurrent viewers)

Tell me more about HD.

Current HQ/HD enabled devices are listed below; we’ll have more devices and updates in the coming months so stay tuned!

  • Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Sony Xperia L
  • LG Nexus 4
  • Verizon HTC One
