User who does live-stream can receive gifts from their fans which can be encashed for real money. There are also in-app interactive games that you can play with live streamer online, or you can play it with friends, family and love ones!
However, Tango has the same issue being faced by other online streaming platform, inappropriate contents are being broadcasted and not suitable for younger audience.
Recently there has been complaint from users about the quality of the app such as missing buttons, problem with the microphones, video lagging, even worse the app crashes and drops calls. Those horrible experience has led app user to stop using Tango. Those could be incompatibility with system update and hardware devices.
Another complain is the in-app purchase cause users to spend money beyond their means. Some may compare the app to gambling site and claim that the former is worse if one does not have self-control. Please also note that Tango allows users to talk to strangers who are using the same app nearby, this is very dangerous especially if the search is based on geo-location. Profiles are open to public so anyone can see if it isn’t set to private.
