LOVOO Live enables users to broadcast and view live-streaming video,
invite others to join their streams, chat, and earn virtual gifts,
creating more authentic interactions and making it even easier to meet
new people. The release of live video in France and Switzerland follows
the launch of Live in Austria two weeks ago, where an average of 15% of
users engaged with video on the first day.

“Early Live data from France and Switzerland is good, with the average
user watching more than 15 minutes per day and the average broadcaster
streaming for more than 45 minutes a day, levels comparable to what we
saw in the early days of video on our MeetMe app,” said Geoff Cook,
Chief Executive Officer of The Meet Group.

“What has been surprising is the rapid adoption of gifting on LOVOO,”
continued Cook. “On MeetMe, it took 6 months from the launch of gifts to
reach 2% of viewers giving gifts. On LOVOO, we achieved that milestone
in the first week. Since gifting is the centerpiece of our video
monetization engine, we are heartened to see this early data. We believe
it is a testament to our ever-improving video platform, which enables us
to build a feature once and rapidly deploy it across four different apps
of scale. We expect to continue to execute on our plan to roll out LOVOO
Live on a country-by-country basis throughout the second half of 2018,
with the next major releases planned in Italy, Spain, and Germany.”

Said Florian Braunschweig, co-founder of LOVOO and GM Europe for The
Meet Group: “We believe that livestreaming will play an important role
in the future of dating. Our users want to show themselves and their
world, and livestreaming video is a powerful technology that delivers
not only authenticity and connection but also entertainment. Dating,
relationships, and love are inherently interesting, and we believe Live
will become an important new feature for LOVOO.”
