Video streaming app Hang w/ now allows users to stream GoPro footage live to mobile phones and tablets

Video streaming app Hang w/ has released an update that enables live streaming from GoPro cameras.

The use of helmet and bike-mounted cameras is ever increasing, with riders now able to capture footage of races, crashes and near misses and publish them online.

Now, with the help of American mobile application developers MEDL riders may be able to stream their rides live to viewers around the world.

“Our users have been asking repeatedly for a GoPro feature, and we are thrilled to deliver,” said CEO of Hang w/ Andrew Maltin. “The opportunities to stream hands-free from a GoPro camera are endless; athletes broadcasting live from the field, travelers sharing moments around the world, chefs in the kitchen, motorcyclists, divers, the list goes on and on.”

The broadcaster can choose between a public or private broadcast, with live footage able to be shared on the app and on social media, and the broadcaster is able to narrate and chat with viewers from the phone.

So, whether you want to show the world, or a select group of people, your training ride around your home town or watch the professionals race around the Tour de France, the Hang w/ app could be one to follow over the coming months.

    It seems as though this is only going to be for iOS at the moment. I hope that they will release the update for android as well. Seems a bit pointless otherwise.
