What the heck is GoMiso
As I have already mentioned, GoMiso is an application system that is available both in web and app format. GoMiso has revolutionized the second screen TV watching experience. The second screen is a technology that provides an enhanced viewing experience by letting you consume your content on other, preferably bigger, screens.
The app heavily focused on the broadcasting industry and the emerging internet entertainment industry.
GoMiso utilizes TV check-in and second-screen technology to keep the audience hooked. And man oh man, it works like a charm as it provides a real-time social stream!
The origin of GoMiso
With innovation in mind, the founders of Miso launched the app only for iPhones on March 29, 2010.
Seeing the initial success of the app, Gomso soon launched on iPad and Android. And the rest is history. Within the first month of launch, the app obtained over one million registered users.
The founder thought why to stop at developing only an app when you can develop APIs. So, in early 2011 they released the Miso API that allowed the platform to interact with devices other than iPhones and Androids, such as Windows phones and blackberries.
Miso kept expanding its horizon. And this time in the form of DirecTV. With the introduction of DirecTV, users now could consume extra content from satellite services. This was a big step for GoMiso’s overall development, as now users could connect their app with their set-top box.
How GoMiso is different from other garden variety streaming apps
In this era of technology, you need to walk the extra mile to WOW your users. Just ask yourself this question, how many times do you check your phone while watching a movie? A study shows an average American check their phone approximately 26 times during a 90 minutes movie.
The study made one thing certain, people are losing their attention span drastically. The evidence you can find on any social platform. Short videos get more views and get viral!
Now, ask yourself, why do you check your phone constantly while watching a movie or your favorite tv series? After all, this is something you chose to watch. Nobody is forcing you to entertain yourself. This is something you enjoy watching. Then why do you keep doing this? The answer is pretty simple because your TV is not interactive enough. There’s nothing to do besides watching it. It is one-way communication. I am ashamed to admit, but the truth is our monkey brain wants more!
GoMiso team knew there was something that needed to be done to keep the attention of their audience. So they took an innovative approach. They implemented something no other streaming platform dared. They made their content interactive!
We, humans, are highly opinionated, at least when we are online. If you only watch a show on one platform and give your review or comment about your experience on some other platform, it creates nothing but inconvenience and more reasons for the audience to get distracted.
When it comes to viewing preference, we prefer the opinion of our friends and people who actually have watched the show over some so-called critique. So it’s highly convenient to go to a show on your TV or on your smartphone app and see what other people have to say about the show before spending your valuable time on it and ending up disappointed.
GoMiso did just that! An average GoMiso user can check out what other users have to say about the show before investing their time in it.
Now, you might say, why would I listen to random strangers on the internet. Well, GoMiso made sure that the random stranger has some credentials. GoMiso gives you points after you finish watching a show, they give you points when you talk about the show on the app, they give you points for liking a show, you get the point. With these points, you can unlock special achievements and badges that give you more credentials.
Bottom line, a comment from a GoMiso user is not the same as the comment from a random dude from the internet. So, a comment in the GoMiso app means stuff as you know it for sure that the person making the comment has actually watched the show, not just ranting.
GoMiso’s unique achievement system: Watching a show on Gomis is more than just watching a show. I don’t know about you but more often, if not always, after watching a show I feel like I have wasted my time, especially if the show was not enjoyable.
But things are different in the world of GoMiso because it’s more than just a streaming platform. After watching each and every show you get points, unlock special achievements, and get badges, which gives you a sense of accomplishment.
And all these achievements just don’t pile up. With every point, you get one step closer to the next badge. And who doesn’t love badges!
So, GoMiso is not just a streaming platform you use as a second screen. It’s more than that, it’s a fun game, where watching every show pushes you one step closer to the next badge and gives you the necessary dopamine rush to keep on watching, but rather than giving you that guilt of “I should probably do my homework” or “the dishes ain’t gonna clean themselves,” it gives you the polar opposite sensation: the sense of achievement.
How GoMiso made things more fun by letting people interact with friends within the app
Inherently, we humans are social creatures. We can do stuff alone only for so long before we get lonely and feel left out. These feelings are now more prominent as the corona pandemic has torn friends and family apart and forced us not to physically interact.
Even if we try, we can’t always hang out with friends. And when you’re not together, it’s easy to run off things to do together. GoMiso knows no show is truly complete until you dissect it with your friends and go full-on nerd about it.
Watching a show on one platform and discussing it on a different one doesn’t feel seamless. So GoMiso gave you all the tools you need to interact with your friends on the app and never leave the app.
Just think about it, games are always more fun when they are multiplayer. Whether it’s PVP or PVE, when you go on a quest with your friends, or team up on your shooter game to kill some zombies, time flies by.
GoMiso gives you a sense of belongingness. You can make a watch list and it watches along with your friends. When you’re on GoMiso, you’re with your friends even when you’re not together physically.
If you make your weekend hangout plan on GoMiso, you would never miss a weekend plan. Nobody gets to call you a lazy bum anymore.
Besides, when you watch a show with your friends, it’s easy to spot inconsistencies in the stories and discuss them later. And after watching the entire show, you, along with your friends, can come to a cumulative decision whether you like the show or not rather than fighting about a single scene for endless hours. We all know how tiring that can be.
That being said, to me, the most appealing part of hanging out with friends and watching our favorite content on GoMiso is I get to show off my badges and achievements to them. Try as hard as they might, I always stay one step ahead of them by watching more shows.
Bottom line, watching TV on GoMiso gives you a sense of achievement and you get to do a friendly competition with your friends.
Why you’re already might be too late to ride the wave
Remember the part where I said that no matter how hard my friends try, I am always one step ahead of them and get to show off my achievements?
This is what I was talking about back then.
GoMiso is nothing less than a fun achievement-based game. If your friends are already secretly a user of GoMiso and watching stuff and gaining points to have a head start and to top it off if they have no intention to slow down, how would you ever catch up?
You see how a simple streaming app turned into a competitive game!
So, make the smart choice and start binging your shows on GoMiso and get ahead of the competition. And once you have a significant lead, ask your friends to ride the wave along with you and surprise them with your progress.
