We’re so excited to announce Airtime is live today. Over the past few years we have been heads down building, testing, iterating, exploring and working day to day to create the new Airtime. Today the world has a chance to explore Airtime with friends and family for the first time. Think about Airtime as a space where you can do everything you’d do if you were physically together — watch music videos while doing homework, check out a stack of photos and relive last night’s adventures, or just hang out. Our lightweight, high-quality group video combined with robust media integrations offers a social experience that will make you feel like you’re right there with your friends and family. All of this has been made possible by our incredibly ambitious team. We have built some of the best mobile video infrastructure around. Our implementation and extension of WebRTC delivers an amazingly good video chat experience - fast, stable, and high-quality - whether you're next door or on the other side of the planet. We can't wait for you to give Airtime a try. Invite some friends and get a room. It's seriously fun.

Airtime's medium post goes into great detail into the thinking and history of the app. Great read. https://medium.com/airtime-blog/...

Wow, big relaunched, very different from Airtime's initial desktop version. Here's an interview with @sparker and @shawnfanning back in 2012 when it first launched:
Great overview of the new app by TechCrunch's @joshconstine here.

@rrhoover I was wondering if this was the return of *that* Airtime!
Pedro Pinto@pmcpinto · pmcpinto.com
@chrismessina @rrhoover I was wondering the same. The 1st Airtime was a kind of a big flop (the timing wasn't the best?), probably the new Airtime will have more traction. Best of luck for the team, looking forward to see how evolves

@pmcpinto @chrismessina I haven't had a chance to play with it yet but consumer behavior and tech has changed so much since 2012. Curious to see how this plays out.

@kayvink this looks really cool. Curious how you'd compare it to the live streaming apps from the last year (Periscope, Meerkat, Facebook Live, Blab, etc.)
