    Twilio Live〜インタラクティブなライブストリーミングサービス Introducing Twilio Live Build Interactive Live Streaming Apps at Global Scale — Now in Beta JP

    この記事は、プロダクト管理担当のAnder Telleriaが、こちら(英語)で執筆した記事を日本語化したものです。

    従来、ポッドキャスト、エンターテインメント、ショッピング、イベントなどのメディアに対する我々の体験は主として受動的な関与に留まっていました。しかしここ1年ほどは、ClubhouseやTikTokなどのプラットフォームの台頭により、よりインタラクティブな体験へとシフトしてきています。今、消費者が求めているのは、相互にやり取りし、能動的に会話に参加し、見られたり、聞かれたりするような没入型の体験です。インタラクティブ・ライブ・ストリーミングの利点(英語ブログ記事「Interactive Live Streaming in 2021 (Tips, Uses, & Platforms)」)をお読みいただき、その使い方のヒントを得てください。

    一方で、このような体験を作り出すのは簡単なことではありません。開発者が今日この問題を自分で解決しようとしたら、ライブストリーミングアプリケーションをグローバルにサポートするために必要なインフラを構築するのに何ヶ月もかかるでしょう。そこで私たちは、このようなインタラクティブなライブストリーミング機能を、簡単で手間のかからない方法で開発者に提供できないものかと自問自答し、新たなサービス機能を開発するに至りました。それがTwilio Liveです。

    なぜTwilio Liveなのか?

    Twilio Liveは、開発者がアプリケーションに直接組み込むことのできる没入型体験を構築するためのツールを提供します。T …

    Interactive Live Streaming in 2021 (Tips, Uses, & Platforms) Interactive_Live_Streaming.png

    Live video streaming has been on the up-and-up in recent years—and 2020 only helped accelerate the movement. With physical distancing mandates and canceled events, more businesses went live online to connect with audiences virtually.

    And it worked!

    Live streaming helped businesses survive and thrive, and it doesn't look like it's going away anytime soon. Quite the opposite. Live streaming has gone from niche to mainstream, and just about every social media, fitness, video game, and music app is capitalizing on the opportunity.

    However, streaming has had to adapt quickly to differentiate itself from traditional television—and it's done so with interactive live streaming. Audiences don't just sit and watch today's live streams—they interact. They chat, like, contribute, ask, vote, donate, win, and engage in novel ways over video and audio streams.

    The industry is evolving quickly, and businesses are finding innovative ways to use live-streaming APIs to take their digital viewing …

    Introducing Twilio Live: Build Interactive Live Streaming at Global Scale — Now in Beta Introducing Twilio Live Build Interactive Live Streaming Apps at Global Scale — Now in Beta.png

    Twilio Live is now Generally Available! Read more about the launch here.

    Traditionally, media consumption such as podcasts, entertainment, shopping, and events have been passive experiences. However, over the past year, we’ve seen a shift to more interactive experiences with the rise of platforms like Clubhouse and TikTok. Consumers are now looking for immersive experiences where they can interact, be part of the conversation, be watched, and be listened to. Learn about the benefits of interactive live streaming and get tips on how to use it.

    However, creating these types of experiences is not straightforward. If developers were to solve this themselves today, it would take months to build out the infrastructure needed to support their livestream applications globally. That left us thinking — how can we bring these interactive live streaming capabilities to developers in a simple and painless way? We built Twilio Live!
