Great app could be improved

I’ve gone live on this app several years ago and recently got back into it. I love this app you can meet really cool people but there are just a couple things I would like to make you aware of. First thing I really wish I could use my back camera whilst live-streaming. I am only able to use my front camera and I can’t zoom in or anything. I really want to see the ability to switch & use a phones back camera to livestream as it would make my life so much easier. The second is I wish the chat was monitored a little more. I got this a lot when I was younger but even now there are a lot of creeps who get really weird in the chat as well as guys who will trick someone into guesting them but then reveal themselves inappropriately or naked. As of right now the only thing you can really do is block or report the person (which doesn’t seem to help), however if I were in charge of making these changes, I would make certain keywords highlight an account & put them on a three-strike probation. I also feel that the problem accounts’ emails/numbers could be banned from creating new accounts if they continue. I feel that this could help the app be safer and less 18+. Thank you for your time, I hope to see these improvements in the future.

An amazing platform with potential

I discovered younow shortly after the blogTV service was purchased so I have been very active and use the platform on a daily basis. The staff is pretty intelligent and quick to handle problems there’s always going to be glitches here and there but they’re not that detrimental. I like that the CEO interacts with the users as well to get real time feedback. I feel that you know is family friendly and a good safe place most of the time for people of all ages to collaborate together but there have been issues that I have become aware of lately where you have older men talking to much much younger women below the age of 16 and with making reports I would never get it resolved which is the reason for only four stars. All in all I think this platform has the ability to scale quite massively I could make people a few dollars on the side if that’s your thing. You know it’s such an instrumental tool for life I almost forgot to add this part to my review but I did in fact meet my wife on YouNow almost 4 years ago and we’re happily married now and we have a 14-month-old son all thanks to this wonderful creation of you now.

Amazing streaming platform

You can meet so many people on here, yes there’s some people that aren’t nice but the majority of people on here are nice. This is one of the best streaming platforms I have ever used and I would use it any day over Twitch. I recommend this to anyone that just likes chatting with viewers, or likes playing video games on stream but also paying attention to the people that come in. I always like to stream and talk about random stuff like what’s going on I’m the world and sometimes I talk about what goes on in my life. I like how you can go under a tag too so that people know exactly what’s going on in the stream before going into it. I love meeting new people on there and just starting conversations because there’s a lot of people on there that are nice. In general I love this app and I will continue to use it for as long as it’s still up which will hopefully be a long time!
