Hello everyone! I’m back with another review for VLIVE! This time, rather than home in Dallas, I’m coming at you from Madrid, Spain!
This week, we are reviewing two features that were added to VLIVE to enhance your experience through the app with a cute and techy twist!
If you’re a frequent user of messaging apps, you may have noticed that almost all of them offer a sticker feature when sending messages. Well, it turns out that the VLIVE app also offers this feature! While watching your favorite idol’s VLIVE broadcast, you are able to send messages and stickers during their broadcast. For reviewing purposes, I purchased and downloaded some cute BT21 stickers off of BTS’s VLIVE Store. To my advantage, it turned out that Jin’s broadcast from earlier today was available to rewatch! Since I was bored and relaxing after a long flight, I decided to give the stickers a try and watch the broadcast.
One major thing I love about the stickers compared to other services that offer stickers for messaging, is that you receive a ton of them in a set! If you knew me, you would know that my KKT account is filled with stickers that I’ve bought throughout the years and to be honest, none of the sets come with as many stickers as the ones in the VLIVE store. Because of this, there’s definitely a variety to choose from so whatever emotion you’re feeling can easily be portrayed! 😄
Moving on to the next and final feature I’ll be reviewing which is the lightsticks feature! This feature allows you to send 2x as many hearts during a broadcast. Although very helpful in getting more hearts for your favorite idols broadcasts, ,the lightsticks feature isn’t my favorite compared to the stickers feature mostly because I don’t see myself using this feature as much. The main reason is that although nifty and cute, I tend to watch VLIVE broadcasts on my breaks or on random whims so I don’t really send many hearts to begin with OTL I KNOW IM A HORRIBLE FAN
Although I don’t personally use this feature, I must admit it’s quite nifty to be able to go ham on hearts during a broadcast and show your support. I must also admit that I enjoy the cute 3D mode offered with lightsticks and I can see it being useful when you’re jamming out with friends to a concert DVD and don’t own a physical lightstick. You could definitely pull out your virtual one and jam out with it and have a mini concert in your room. LOL
VLIVE has been adding various features to their app for the longest and I’m excited to see what else they’ll offer.
If you would like to purchase a lightstick or sticker, visit your VLIVE app, click on the middle shopping bag icon the click either stickers or lightsticks and purchase from there! I HIGHLY recommendthe stickers because they’re super cute and add a little bit of love to messages you send your favorite idols~
