Glance TV

Glance TV, a live, interactive content platform for the home screen, or “screen zero” of Android smart TVs, was unveiled today by Glance, a consumer internet firm and a subsidiary of InMobi. Glance TV wants to change how people watch TV by giving them live content and real-time on-screen interaction.

With its offering and personalization, including strong social features that make it, Glance TV allows viewers to break out of a passive, constrained, and isolated viewing experience and become active participants in the shows they watch.

On their television home screens, Glance TV customers may interact with their favorite celebrities in real time. They can participate in tailored fitness training sessions, watch interactive cooking shows hosted by renowned chefs, or watch sports in communal watch-along that simulate immersive stadium environments.

Users can interact with and determine the direction of the content in shows by leaving live comments and reactions, including polls. Users can use QR codes on live TV to buy movie and event tickets, shop in real time, and even have their social media postings broadcast on Glance TV streams.

Unlike conventional long-form TV broadcasts, Glance TV will offer offbeat, individualized snackable content of 5–20 minutes in categories such as sports, entertainment, infotainment, e-sports, current events, lifestyle, food, and fitness.

Glance TV is a watershed moment for the company, which has revolutionized content consumption on smartphones by putting live, interactive content on the lock screen. Glance, which was launched in 2019, has grown to become one of the largest mobile lock screen platforms in the world, with over 200 million active users. Jio recently invested in integrating Glance’s ‘lock screen platform’ into the JioPhone Next smartphones.

The company  has worked with big content producers like Zee5, Epic On, and Docubay to make sure its customers get new, tailored, and high-quality content every day. Glance TV aspires to be on roughly 30% of all smart TVs in India by the end of the year. People around the world will be able to use Glance TV, and the company also plans to make it work on other smart TV operating systems.

Speaking of the launch, Piyush Shah, Co-founder of InMobi Group and President and COO of Glance, said:

Glance has reimagined the lock screen of smartphones into a live screen for personalised, LIVE content. With Glance TV, we want to redefine television experiences just as we did with smartphones. This is TV in a way that has never been seen before and is a true innovation that extends the LIVE experience that Glance delivers on lock screens to television home screens.

Manish Gupta, Senior Vice President and GM, Glance, said:

With Glance TV, our intention is to remove the age-old connotation of TV being an idle way to pass time and change the perception of TV as the ‘idiot box’. Glance TV gives users experiences where they can be active while watching TV and can express themselves directly on the big screen, within virtual communities of fellow users.

This Feature is Coming to WhatsApp – Silent Exit

Published

on

whatsapp

If you’re a WhatsApp user and you found yourself added to a group without your knowledge, and you don’t want to annoy the person who added you probably because it’s a family member, well worry not as WhatsApp is working on a feature that will make you secretly leave a group without anyone noticing.

According to the latest report from Wabetainfo, an update is in work that would allow WhatsApp users to leave groups silently. A screenshot of the upcoming feature shows that when you leave a group, other members won’t be informed about your exit. Only you and the WhatsApp group admin will be notified that you’ve left the group.

WhatsApp group exit

What this means is that when you exit a group, WhatsApp normally adds a system message in the chat to inform all participants that you exited the group; but with this latest development, only the group admins will be notified that you left a group. Group admins should always be notified about what happens in their groups, so it is needed to show them who exited a group.

The feature is still in development, and it will be rolled out fully once it’s tested in the coming weeks.
