Livestreaming has become incredibly popular in recent years. People of all kinds are sharing their talents for video games, makeup, cooking, animal training, and the ever-popular battle royale, Fortnite. Getting in on the streaming action usually involves buying a slew of expensive A/V equipment and a beefy computer, but what if there were a better way?

The GO:LIVECAST is super simple to use. Just plug in your smartphone, connect your headphones, and you're ready to go!
