Tumblr has launched a new app allowing groups of friends to simultaneously video chat and watch YouTube videos together in sync. The app replicates sharing a video with friends whilst in the same room. Users are notified of friends beginning a broadcast, and up to six friends can hang out in a ‘room’. While social media allows content sharing, Cabana fills the gap for co-viewing with others, and experiencing their reactions in real-time. The app has no relation to the Tumblr blogging platform, and picks up user’s contacts from their address book.
