ABC Designs Social, Interactive Sitcom Laugh Track
The Social Soundtracker app creates a new active experience of watching TV online.
ABC News has come out with a web-based and mobile app that lets users create their own audience track while watching live TV. The Social Soundtracker app translates what users feel about a show or movie into sound so it would seem like they’re watching live TV with other people even if they’re alone in the room.
The app can be used on a mobile device if you’re watching live TV or on a laptop or computer if you’re watching a livestream. Users sign in via Facebook and can see who of their friends is using the app at the same time. Users can also add future shows to their calendar.
