Live streaming has boomed over the last year in the confines of the pandemic. Entertainers and creators have turned to platforms like Twitch, Youtube and Facebook Gaming as new platforms to reach their fans. Massive concerts and events have taken place attracting millions of viewers. But when we spoke to Derek Omori cofounder of Blerp he said “the innovations in livestreaming are just beginning to unfold, new interactive experiences will change the way we view entertainment at large.”

Blerp Sound Emotes has brought their hugely successful Twitch integration to Facebook and Youtube gaming. Their Twitch extension grew to over 150,000 channels in the 8 months since its release gaining over 10x the active users of GIPHY’s extension. Aaron Hsu when asked about what contributed to Blerps viral growth he said “GIPHY really highlights how memes can connect each other, but what’s interesting about just sharing a Sound Emote is that when its shared it’s focused on ENHANCING a moment… it doesn’t take away from the creator at all… the viewer feels like they were a part of that moment.”

Blerp just launched Streamer Sound Emotes and the reception for Youtube and Facebook streamers has been amazing. What makes Blerp truly unique is the thousands of content creators making personalized soundboards of their own voice, which they feature on-stream for their fans. Increasing engagement and enticing new subscribers is the key to making a sustainable living from streaming, and Blerp has been instrumental to streamer success.

Katy Bentz, notable for her role as Steph Gingrich in Life is Strange: Before the Storm, is a hugely popular Twitch streamer who attributes a portion of her success to Blerp. “I would recommend Blerp a hundred times over to anybody… it’s really great when you can be a part of something and [represent] something you really believe in, and I really believe in Blerp.”

Although Blerp is currently focused on amplifying gaming and live streaming through audio experiences and sound sharing, their vision is to bring Blerp to a wider variety of platforms through integrations with voice assistants, voice chats, and more.
