People say that you only enjoy watching photos and videos if you share it with your peers. Most of the time, we share our content with others on our smartphone or tablet, which is good for up to three people but becomes difficult to enjoy with any member more than that. You are either left for sharing it on a TV or passing your device to each one. However, there seems to be a solution for that now — VuShare.

The developers of the VuLiv Player app have introduced this feature for ‘simulcasting’ (simultaneously casting) Videos, Music, Photos on any multiple screens including smartphones, computers or even Smart TV without any additional hardware or even without internet or any additional cost. The company states that this eliminates problems of low storage faced by virtually all smartphone users due to frequent file exchanges between peers through various platforms.

In order to enable VuShare Feature, users need to click on the VuShare icon and enable a VuShare session to watch a favourite video together with friends or where friends can go even solo to watch their choice of content with full playback and sound controls.

Friends can create their playlists and enjoy their favourites on the choice of their screen size or the sound systems, as each one of the VuShare session members have individual playback controls. The app uses proprietary software technology to connect with multiple smart devices at same time and creates one host to manage playback controls or playlist combinations. The technology is native to smartphone hardware and is built on core communication protocols which allows the host to beam dedicated speed for each connected device with no loss of content quality or buffering unlike faced even in a 4G network.  A VuLiv host can enable a multimedia VuShare Session for non-VuLiv customers also, who can access full playback and playlist controls via their mobile browser.

The app is available for download on both Android and iOS, although the VuShare feature is only available on Android as of now.
