Rooter, the live social sports engagement platform is now upping its game. Now a new and improved version of its app, Rooter 3.0 has been introduced. Featuring a flexible user interface that caters to global audiences, the latest update makes several exciting new additions to the platform. Most prominent of them being the introduction of a Sports Social Feed and the first-ever Live Fantasy Game in India for cricket.
Rooter introduced the concept of Live Sports Engagement for fans 18 months ago. It has overhauled its entire interface to provide experience across 8 different sports. The list includes Cricket, Football, Tennis, Hockey, Basketball, Badminton, Formula 1, and Kabaddi. No other platform in its domain caters to such an extensive array of sporting disciplines.
In a first, the platform's latest avatar also introduces Sports Social Feed. It is a personalized newsfeed containing live sporting information sourced from the top sports social media channels.
Furthermore, Rooter has also introduced a social gaming experience for sports fans on its platform. The Live Fantasy Cricket game allows users to pick any four players during a live match and compete with their friends in real-time. This feature will soon be made available for live football matches as well.
Speaking on the announcement, Piyush Kumar, Founder & CEO - Rooter, said, "As avid sports fans ourselves, we always strive to make the experience of viewing sports as interesting as the actual 'game'. Rooter 3.0 is a step further towards realizing this vision, leveraging cutting-edge technology to introduce a bevy of features, games and in-app experiences to help users interact, compete and stay on top of sporting events across the world. Having already received a highly encouraging response to the app update from our existing user base, we are confident that Rooter 3.0 will deliver a more immersive, engaging, and social experience to ardent fans across the world, fuelling their passion for sports further!"
The live match engagement aspect on the Rooter platform has also been enhanced significantly. Users can now engage with an ongoing match by checking scores, playing the match prediction game, or just scrolling through the feed for the latest videos and news from the world of sports. Rooter users can now also play match related games, win badges and proudly showcase them on their profiles.
