New Delhi: Live streaming is getting much better yet again with Comcast now making its Xfinity Share app available to all subscribers.
Xfinity Share lets users stream content directly to the television. It also lets users share from mobile to mobile, though, if that's more convenient.
When we launched Xfinity Share, we wanted to give people an easy way to share big moments on the big screen. Now, we’re announcing some changes that will significantly expand the number of people who can use the app, the company announced Thursday in a blog in its official website.
Starting today, every Xfinity customer - video, Internet, voice, and home - can use Xfinity Share to live stream and send photos and videos to a TV. They can also use the app to send or receive live streams, photos, and videos on a mobile device, it added.
It said to watch live streams or receive photos and videos from Xfinity Share on the TV, consumers will still need to have X1 DVR capable set-top boxes.
Here's how you can live stream your's or your kids' activities to your loved ones from afar-
Open the Xfinity Share app, select "Stream Live," select "Stream to other contacts," enter the home phone number or comcast.net email address for the person you want to see the video, and click "Stream." A notification will pop up on that person’s TV, and all that person needs to do to watch the live streaming is click the "Info" button on the X1 TV remote.
The Xfinity Share app is available to download for free from the Apple Store for iOS devices or from Google Play for Android devices.
Follow the above instructions to stream to the TV.
Happy live streaming!
