Ustream is the official app from the service of the same name to let you stream all kinds of things, including sports, video games, news, technology, and so on. You can stream all this from your Android device, so long as you have a stable Internet connection.
TV channels aren’t a privilege of a few no more: Ustream is a web service that allows you to watch and create channels to broadcast video content. Although since the beginning it was a great business project, since the spreading of smartphones all around the World, it has taken a new direction: its Android app allows you to watch and (even more important) broadcast live videos from your smartphone over 3G/4G and WiFi.
First off, you have to sign up on Ustream.com. You can do it from the website or from the app. After that, you can use the search bar to find specific channels, search them by categories, featured or among your favorites. You can also find upcoming, recent or lives events. What’s more, you will be able to start broadcasting from “Go Live” button. The app is quite simple as it just contains four tabs and some basic settings.
Of course, besides streaming, you can also broadcast your own content on Ustream to users all over the world using your device’s camera. That said, in order to broadcast, you’ll need a free user account.
One interesting feature is that you can interact with any broadcaster or those watching your own transmissions. Once you’re registered, you can use comments to start conversations with other users.
Ustream is similar to Twitch, as they both permit video broadcasts. But instead of being focused on video games like the latter, Ustream lets you enjoy a wide range of categories, such as sports, animals, technology, music, etc. The possibilities are endless.
