Skout Introduces Live Video, Guest Broadcasting and Gifting

The Meet Group has announced the launch of its latest mobile app product features for Skout.

Skout Live gives users the ability to broadcast and also view live-streaming video. They can also invite other guest broadcasters into their own live-streams, and are able to earn virtual gifts.

Users just have to log in and go Live to meet various new people and receive gifts such as virtual cars, candy, roses and more.

The Meet Group have conducted research to show more users engaging with the updated product.

The research discovered that 25% of Skout’s daily users currently watch live-streams everyday, and the average Live viewer watches roughly 21 streams a day.

The company also found out that 10% of all Skout live-streamers are already receiving gifts.

Catherine Cook Connelly, VP of Brand Strategy said: “Live makes our apps feel more vibrant. The spirited and diverse Skout community is engaging with Live similarly to how MeetMe users first began using MeetMe Live. As we continue to roll out new features on both apps, we’re excited to see the community thrive and Skout users embrace gifting.”

The Meet Group is looking to launch the cashout process, which will see users’ gifts can be exchanged for real money.
