Update: Contacts, message removal and flags

Dear friends!

We continue to make the best video broadcasting service in the world.
First, we owe you an apology. This time, the update wasn’t as good as we expected. Shortly after release, the server experienced a drastic slowdown, and our developers spent an entire night looking into this issue. Although fixing a live server is extremely difficult, we managed to identify the problem and fix it. Hooray!
Now let’s go back to the description of the update.

List of contacts

You may occasionally meet a person online whom you like and with whom you share some common interests and ideas. And then somebody distracts you, the chat history goes up and you lose this connection, which is sad. We decided to fix it.
From now on, when you send a message to someone, this person is added to the list of your contacts and is stored on your device. This list is available in the personal area of the app. For your convenience, the right panel in the general chat window now shows both your friends and your recent contacts.

Removing messages in a chat

We also found this problem: chat rooms are visited by “trolls” who can drop in and write a lot of nonsense, and this nonsense will remain in your room even if you ban that user or deny them access to your room. You can now remove messages in chat rooms by clicking a cross icon next to them. We hope it will make your chat experience more comfortable and positive.

Self-expression and patriotism are a part of our lives. You can now show a beautiful flag in broadcasts and show the rest that your country is no small thing for you.

Update: a viewers list and a chat for foreigners

Dear friends!

We continue to further improve Vanilla Show, our favorite video broadcasting service.

After some of our recent updates, we received a number of comments regarding the importance of a list of viewers in every broadcast. We agree that removing it was a mistake. We enhanced the design, made the list even more convenient and are adding it back today. From now on, your friends with the “online” status will be shown in the general chat, and a list of viewers will be shown in broadcast rooms.

Update: shouts and video broadcasts

Dear friends!
We are hard at work further improving our international video broadcasting service, Vanilla Show.
There was a time when the application allowed users to start a broadcast and watch others’ steams at the same time. It was the key feature of our service. Unfortunately, as they kept chasing design improvements and better atmosphere, our developers got rid of it. Today, we present a new version of the service that brings a lot of minor optimizations, bug fixes and returns the long-awaited function!
