Google’s lab for experimental projects called Area 120 has built a new app that will let you follow and share quick videos with your friends. Google likes to call it Tangi, an experimental social video sharing app that is available on the Apple App Store and the website as well.
The main idea behind Tangi is to let you view and share quick DIY videos particularly, though later we may see it becoming a platform for a different form of videos. Today, Google has introduced it as a platform for passionate people who are more into creativity and want to learn and share stuff.
The interface of Tangi looks more like the Pinterest app which lets you browse through several boards of your interests and pin them if you like them. The only visible difference is, Tangi includes only 60 seconds videos whereas Pinterest is the hub for all the media, be it the videos or even the images, and in fact, for all kinds of videos. People share images as well as videos sometimes a link to the site is also included.
The new social video sharing app aims to inspire people to try creative projects like art, DIY cooking, fashion, and beauty hacks. Google mentions that it has been working with the creators who already make these kinds of videos so that Tangi could become one place to inspire other makers.
By the way, Tangi's name is inspired by the words TeAch aNd Give and “tangible” – things you can make.
With Tangi, Google wants to create a special place for the creators who can share their creativity. Pinterest does offer such kind of facility to the makers but Tangi comes as a special makers’ place, crafted especially for the creators and learners via fun and quick 60 seconds videos.
Download the app from the App Store or access it on the web at tangi.co.
