Times Internet enhances Alive app with video sharing feature
MUMBAI: Alive, the augmented realty app from Times Internet, has introduced a video sharing service called AlivePIX.
With AlivePIX, users can experience augmented reality by creating augmented photos from their videos and also share the hidden memories behind each video with their friends and relatives.
To get started, the user has to download the Alive app and shoot a video or choose an existing one from the phone’s video gallery. Then, the user has to select a photo from one of the frames in the video and customise it under various themes like ‘birthday’, ‘thank you’, ‘sorry’, etc.
The user can then share the augmented photo on their social network, email it, or even print and post it.
The receiver has to scan the shared photograph with the ‘scan tab’ option in the Alive app on their own smartphone. Photos come alive as the user can watch the complete video within the app.
AlivePIX is currently available on Android and will be launched on iOS very soon.
Times Internet director of telecom Ajay Vaishnavi said, “Alive is the most-downloaded AR app in India. It is our constant endeavour to enhance Alive by making it useful for day-to-day use. With AlivePIX, mobile app users can create their own augmented reality pictures and share with their near and dear ones in a new fun way. We are hopeful ‘pixing’ will catch up with Alive users.”
