What is YouNow?

YouNow is a live streaming platform that lets you broadcast video from your desktop or mobile device as well as view the broadcasts of other members. You can view these broadcasts live, and comment and chat in real-time, or afterwards if a clip of your broadcast has been captured. Broadcasts can also be shared on other social media services, and viewed on a PC without logging in. Participating in the platform is incentivised by the giving and receiving of virtual gifts that are purchased in-app. Members of the YouNow community with a large following may have a subscribe button. For a monthly fee you can gain additional features to interact with these members.
