LiveShare comes to Android, features free cross-platform messaging service for users

By

LiveShare announces its beautiful messaging app which is now available on Google Play for Android users.

LiveShare, a product by Cooliris, has just launched its app for Android. With the app, Android users can now enjoy one-to-one or group messaging with other LiveShare users. The LiveShare app too comes with a completely redesigned interface which was announced back in April. Back then, the app was only available on the iOS.

Earlier last month, Cooliris managed to secure an undisclosed amount of investment from DOCOMO Capital to expand its reach in Japan. In May 2012, AdJitsu, another product under Cooliris, was acquired by Amobee, a leading mobile 3D advertising platform based in the US.

Cooliris, Inc., the world leader in immersive visual experiences and the creator of the native Android Gallery application, today announces the launch of LiveShare for Android, the free messaging application. The all-new version of LiveShare for Android eliminates the consumers’ expensive messaging costs with a free and beautifully-organized experience that blends 1-to-1 and group messaging with collage-style photo sharing.

The new LiveShare for Android leverages the user’s Interaction Graph to create a more efficient way to communicate with those who matter the most to them. With its deeper integration with Facebook and the device’s address book, LiveShare enables users to seamlessly invite their friends and interact more visually in real-time.

“Mobile users expect performance and simplicity along with the ability to express themselves using their phones,” said Soujanya Bhumkar, Cooliris CEO. “We believe that the communication experience should be delightful and cross-platform, and our team has worked diligently to create a ubiquitous experience across Web, Android, and iOS. This all-new version for Android accomplishes that goal.”

The new LiveShare for Android is available today for free on Google Play, and also at www.liveshare.com.
