The live-streaming video app Meerkat has released what it’s calling its “biggest addition since launching.”
Dubbed Cameo, the app’s new feature lets viewers take over a broadcaster’s live-stream. But viewers can’t just take over any live-stream of their choosing— the broadcaster has to invite them by tapping on their profiles as they watch.
After the viewer accepts the invitation, the live-stream then switches over to focus on him or her. Both the viewer and the broadcaster have the ability to end the “cameo appearance” whenever they choose (within the span of a minute), at which point the stream goes back to the original broadcaster.
