Meerkat isn’t listening to the naysayers who say they’ve lost ground to Periscope.
And to prove it, they’re now releasing a new feature.
The live streaming app has just released a feature that will allow embedding within their live streams for all users since this past Friday.
The company also announced that they were entering a partnership with The Discovery Channel in time for the network’s popular Shark Week stretch of programming, set to begin on July 5th.
The embedding feature breaks down like this: Meerkat users can choose from three sizes, pick whether to allow comments or not on the post and upload an image into the embeddable player.
Newer users will see the stream play out with just the basic profile data.
If the player gets published before the stream goes live, viewers will see either information from your past stream or info on the upcoming one if you’ve got a streaming history already established.
The new feature for Meerkat comes just three days after their rival, Twitter’s Periscope, announced that their users could now view replays from the service on the web.
