How did Booyah come about?
Booyah! was created as a streaming service aimed at Free Fire, famous Battle Royale in the style of Fortinite, PUBG, Apex Legends, among others. The platform, it is worth mentioning, is compatible with these and other games but, in this case, it requires the use of third-party programs for transmission, such as OBS and XSplit.
In general, Booyah! works in a similar way to Twitch and Nimo. And, currently, it is possible to use the platform on the computer, iOS (iPhone, iPad, etc.) and on devices Android. In addition, FreeFire itself has native compatibility.
How to watch broadcasts?
The service works in a very intuitive way and, to watch broadcasts, the user can use three alternatives, already available on the home page:
- Start: which has a set of transmissions offered by the platform itself;
- To search for: that allows you to search for someone’s name streamer specific;
- Following: which displays only accounts that the user already follows.
There is yet another way to find transmissions. Just enter the “Channels in High” section, also on the home page, which allows you to filter content by: Pro Player videos (with professional players), funny content, colabs, “talkative” (which includes live chat and other games) .
If you want to encourage the streamers that accompany it, the user can use the platform’s Coins system (or “coins”, in Portuguese). Through it, it is possible to make donations ranging from R $ 3.90 to up to R $ 229.90. When the streamer accumulates more than R $ 200 in his account, he can request a withdrawal or transfer to his bank institution.
How to create content?
The first step is to register with Booyah !, a minimum requirement for both aspiring streamers and spectators. To do this, access the website through the computer or download the application. Then click on “Profile” to start the registration. After registering an account, click on the “+” on the home screen. Here, it is worth mentioning that it is only possible to carry out transmissions through the application on the cell phone.
Now, choose between uploading a ready-made clip or starting a live stream. If you prefer the first option, be aware that it is possible to link your Booyah account with YouTube, Facebook and Twitch by clicking on their respective icons on the screen that will appear next. With that, the transmissions will be synchronized.
If you want to make a live broadcast, press “Continue” and choose the game of your choice, filling in the description and inserting tags. Once this is done, click on the “Start” button.
