Verizon launches go90, its own video streaming service for smartphones

Verizon’s go90 has been available in the form of a beta since quite a long time now, and the company has finally decided to give it a full launch. You can say hello to the Android and iOS utility which allows you to stream curated video content on your devices, apart from offering other functions.

go90 is available for free in the US through the Google Play store and the Apple App store, and has some features reserved only for Verizon Wireless customers. An array of interesting programming content from TV and online networks like Comedy Central, ESPN, NFL Network, MTV, Univision and Vice is available for streaming on it.

Since it’s completely free to access, you should of course expect ads to greet you while using it. The go90 app has a feature which lets you select from a number of topics you enjoy watching videos on. Once that’s done, it tailors the content that’s shown to you accordingly.

In case you’re wondering what go90 stands for, it’s Verizon actually asking customers to turn their devices 90 degrees in order to watch videos in landscape mode. However stupid that sounds, the app’s name has evidently been aimed towards appealing to the young generation.

A feature within the app allows you to cut and share clips from the content you’re watching with your friends. Moreover, there’s also a group chat option available for those who wish to converse with each other while watching a particular video.

Like we said, Verizon’s go90 app is live now only in the US, and can be grabbed through the Google Play store and the Apple App Store for free.
