Live-streaming just got a whole lot easier on iOS and Android, but will it work?

Do we really need yet another live-streaming service?

You would be hard pressed to find a gamer who hasn’t at least heard of Twitch in 2018. Live streaming seems to be the hottest form of media at the moment and everyone wants to be a part of it, everyone including a company you’ve likely never heard of named CyberAgent.

For those of you who don’t know, CyberAgent is a Japanese holding company which owns stock in pretty much every online/digital industry imaginable. You can probably already see where this is going…

Their latest venture is an iOS and Android live streaming service called Mirrativ which allows you to easily live-stream the screen of your mobile device. We tried it here.

Although the service isn’t perfect, as a streamer Mirrativ allows you to easily connect with the people who follow you on Twitter as well as collect donations via PayPal. As a viewer, you can easily view live streams either via your browser or using the dedicated mobile app.

The only problem?

We have no idea how many users actually use the platform as of right now, (it doesn’t seem to be terribly popular in Japan at this stage), nor can we guess how the platform will perform outside of the Japanese market.

So to conclude, Mirrativ is a cool new service you may want to keep an eye out for during the next few months… That’s about all we can say for now…
