With Its New App, Tumblr Is Moving Beyond Looping Videos and Memes to Live Video and Messaging

Cabana is a ‘digital couch’ for livestreaming

Tumblr is making a bigger bet on video. Today the Yahoo-owned site is launching an app called Cabana that lets up to six users at a time video chat with one another. Users can also watch YouTube clips within the app via an API integration. Tumblr is initially launching Cabana for iPhones, with an Android version expected in May.
