A look at how users were using Livestream's mobile app to start streaming revealed a large majority were impromptu broadcasts. Broadcasts that were either the result of capturing something in the moment, or vlogging on a whim. This project focused on both refreshing the look of the broadcasting tool and reducing the friction of going live from your phone.
The previous version of our Mobile Broadcaster required the user to fill out meta information for the video they were about to capture. We now prepopulate these required fields and allow the user to go live with just a press of the large red button.
