This will enable over 400 million Android 5.0 users to broadcast to the Kamcord app directly, live-streaming mobile games to the world
Shortly after launching its new and improved version in Japan and Korea, Kamcord — a live-streaming app company for mobile games — has today announced a new feature that would make it easier for Android users to stream onto the platform directly from their phones.
Previously, broadcasters wishing to stream their mobile gameplay onto Kamcord would need to first connect their smartphones or tablets to a computer.
Aditya Rathnam, Co-founder, Kamcord, told e27 that the new feature will enable over 400 million Android 5.0 users to live-broadcast their mobile gameplay at the click of a button. Some of the popular games streamed include Clash of Clans, Minecraft and Puzzle and Dragons.
The live-streaming app has done well internationally, including in Asia, on which Rathnam has had his eye since it received multiple rounds of funding from big (Asian) players like Japanese game corporation DeNA, Kai-fu Lee’s Innovation Works, China-based Tencent and another Japanese app company GungHo.
It has partnered with various mobile gaming celebrities to bring in the viewers; in Korea, for example, it is featuring Sleepground and Ddotty — both have already hit the 20,000 followers milestone.
The feature is currently not available for iOS users, mainly because the Operating System used by Apple does not have screen capture APIs.
