Yahoo brings its new way of communication called Livetext to India
New Delhi, India, August 14, 2015: Yahoo has announced the global roll out of Livetext and is bringing this new way to communicate to India. Yahoo Livetext blends the immediacy and simplicity of texting with the expressiveness of video, without the audio and it is now available around the world in every major language.
Hundreds of millions of us are addicted to our phones, most of us (71 percent even sleep with them; yet, the way we use these devices to communicate doesn’t fit seamlessly into our daily lives. While texting is quick and easy, you often miss the meaning of a message, have to explain your reaction (“LOL”), or wait hours before getting a response. And to actually talk on the phone, you not only have to be available, but you also have to be in a place where you can speak.
Connecting with your friends should be spontaneous and easy but also fleeting, just like a real-life conversation. Yahoo Livetext combines video to make your conversations more authentic, and text to bring you a quick and non-intrusive way to connect.
Livetext puts your words and your friend’s real-time reactions at the center of your conversation. Whether you are cheering at a Cricket match, club-hopping on a Saturday night, or at your local music gig, you can spontaneously connect with friends and family and invite them to experience moments with you. With the video on, you can not only share a text with your friend, but also see their expression real time, and without having to take an audio call. Simple conversations transform into richer experiences and become more authentic and memorable.
