2014 - Tango messenger adds new brand channels to compete with ooVoo

Mobile messager Tango is adding new options to its Channels program for publishers and brands, including BuzzFeed and Vimeo. Tango’s Channels are something similar to Facebook Pages in that it gives consumers a way to subscribe to receive updates from publishers and other brands in the service. It’s not an advertising program per se, but by giving brands a home in Tango, it can feed into the company’s ad efforts. The list of new publishers suggests that Tango will continue expanding the entertainment side of the program. Recent additions include AOL On (AOL owns TechCrunch), Funny or Die, Hulu, Rhapsody, SoundCloud and Vevo, with the aforementioned BuzzFeed and Vimeo coming soon. Tango said there are more than 30 Channels total.
