Rabbit Releases Browser-Based Video Chat and Content Sharing Application

Synchronous content sharing allows people to share experiences together the way they would in person

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rabbit, the video chat technology upstart with a mission of bringing people together, today announces the launch of its browser-based video chat and content sharing application, now available at rabb.it. Users can synchronously share online content, including videos, games and documents, while video and text chatting with up to 10 people at once.  

For more than just video chat, Rabbit lets users watch and share online content - including videos, TV shows and documents - with up to 10 of their friends.

"Our lives are enhanced by being with other people: you sit together on a couch to watch TV, go to the movies in a group. People have tried to recreate this experience online by cobbling together different technologies and devices, but it just doesn't work," says Michael Temkin, CEO of Rabbit. "We've created a simple, seamless way to bring people together."

Rabbit is immediately available for use and can be accessed via computers with a web camera and a microphone. Chrome and Opera browsers are currently supported. Upcoming development will focus on the addition of product features and increased accessibility for other platforms and devices.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
