These terrific video streaming applications provide you with unbelievable features like other social media platforms. Users can follow their favorite channels & enjoy their gameplay. Anyone can try using the platform and enjoy the features such as:

  • Chat room: Though being a live video game streaming website, your mobile app should be able to allow users to interact with others on the platform. Give them privileges of direct messaging where they can also use private messaging or conversation between two users. Chat Rooms inclusion would be a unique feature that makes it totally different from other apps.  Provide chat rooms intended to immerse viewers within the experience in each live session. Mobile gaming apps consider Community interaction as an essential parameter for overall development.  All these chats are in a modifying nature. Include chat features that offer a trait of individuals mentioning a person by messaging directly or only to a specific person whose name without letting any other person in the group to read the same.

Eventually, millions of users will connect to your app as long as they have internet connectivity and enjoy the live streaming video interactive session.

Though there exists a number of live streaming apps, if your app offers its users a number of features it will definitely stand out and catch the eye of more audiences. Viewers become ‘unique viewers’ when they watch a live stream more than 3 times and so the streamer gets unique views. Another unique thing which could distinguish your app from the other apps or live streaming websites is its restrictions on only video games streaming. This will allow your mobile app to gain popularity.


Design an app that could be the world’s top game live streaming website with its easy interface for the users to enjoy the live streaming. For such amazing mobile app development services that build an easy live streaming interface, a high technology stack is used at the back-end. You may use Ruby on Rails for the app and Data, along with the PostgreSQL and Firebase. Utilities can be derived using technologies such as Switype, Recurly, Authy and many more other tools. Rollbar for Dev and Google Apps, Hackpads for Business. Also, data derived from some trusted websites also tell us that Video systems have been made up using Video ingest; RTMP video. Transcode system from Intake RTMP stream via the broadcaster and transcode it into multiple HLS streams which is a combination of C/C++ and Go. Also, when we talk about (VOD) Video on Demand, it would be a smart move for the app to have its own VOD system. Include Web APIs and Data which provides services such as Web APIs, Search and discovery which helps users to discover the streams, Revenue systems and Administrative tools that assist the app representatives to solve the customer’s problems. 

Living in advanced technology has enabled us for many valuable new forms of the learning platform. Such technology has particularly the ability to facilitate online distance learning sessions in many fields with the help of video editing apps. Make sure your app is one such discussion board and chat rooms that allows real-time teacher-learner and learner-learner interactions. Although there are many traditional YouTube™ and such similar platforms which allow asynchronous video-based instruction for educational related content and that has been effective for learning also. But when it comes to the curriculum includes motor skills, procedures and any other activities. 

Mobile apps like Twitch are in many ways similar to YouTube, as they allow users to generate video content, albeit in different forms. YouTube has video streaming and live-streaming for Twitch. Develop a unique app that contains the valuable content such as the most common resolutions of active streams, the average bit rate at which broadcasters upload their streams, key demographics of the app user base, and the average length of stored videos.  Such informative app content may directly benefit the many professional companies that can expect the terms of network traffic and hardware requirements and especially storage space.
