Hang w/ lets people hang with each other through video that is captured on one phone or tablet - and shared simultaneously to dozens, hundreds or even millions of phones, tablets and computers LIVE as it's happening. Think Twitter. Except it's LIVE video. Not pre-recorded. Not edited. Not faked. Whatever is seen and heard live in the moment - is shared live in the moment. For a global culture that craves authenticity, LIVE STREAMING VIDEO IS AS REAL AS IT GETS. Since launching last year, we have seen: More than 1,000,000 downloads in first 9 months. More than 3,000,000 live broadcasts. Tens of millions of user sessions - with an average user session that's now more than 14 minutes long! More than 400,000,000 "Hang w/ me" notifications delivered. Unprecedented engagement numbers The early adopters of Hang w/ are a who's who in the worlds of music, sports, TV and film. It's not just celebs who are flocking to Hang w/.
