How often do you find a video you want to share because it reminds you of someone? Invodo reports 92% of mobile video viewers share videos with others, whether on social media or more privately through email or SMS. And with overall video consumption on phones and tablets up 532 percent over the last two years, it’s expected to account for two-thirds of all mobile internet traffic by 2018.
With these insights in mind we rebuilt mobile video app, 5by – a StumbleUpon product – to give our users a single destination for finding, sharing and chatting about online video in real-time. Now people will be able to visit 5by, search for videos across multiple platforms such as YouTube and partners channels, and have real-time conversations with friends about their favorites – all in one place.
Recently, Google named 5by one of its Best Apps of 2014, which highlights just a handful of apps out of the millions available in the Play store. We’re humbled by the honor and look forward to sharing more 5by news in 2015. Download the new iOS and Android apps today.
