A homegrown app that should be on your radar
Do not underestimate the power of live streaming, as this new approach lets content creators deliver their content in unique ways. Gaining popularity in the past few years, there are several livestream apps users can choose from. Amidst the diversity, one should definitely check out Kumu.
A livestream app proudly made by Filipinos, Kumu is derived from the Filipino word “kumusta?” and aims to be a platform for Filipino culture and communities to collaborate creatively.
Kumu’s community includes musicians, DJs, artists, chefs, educators, entrepreneurs and everyday Filipinos—all showcasing their talents and stories through their respective channels.
Kumu has a few high-profile livestreams that include actress Christine Reyes promoting her movie “Maria”, followed by a special QuizMoKo game where Php 1 million was up for grabs. Aside from QuizMoKo, Kumu has other unique content that include Pinoys Doing Stuffs” – a show where users face off against each other in outrageous and exciting challenges for a cash prize, “Multiple Chos” – a show where users have to guess which choice is a joke, and “Sing Tanong”–a show dedicated to Filipino’s love for karaoke.
“Our ambition is no less than enabling the future of the global Filipino community–a future that is powered by Filipino culture, with its secret sauce made of one part hugot, two parts creative ingenuity, and a whole lot of love,” Kumu CEO and co-founder Roland Ros said.
