On Monday a new Yelp update to its iOS app has been released. This app helps users to download short videos up to 12 seconds long with reviews and pictures.
New opportunities to the crowd-sourced business and restaurant guide are now availiable thanks to Yelp version 8.1, providing members a capacity to post 3-12 seconds long review videos. As a result of this update user reviews were reduced to text and pictures.
The video review tool can be able to get from the app’s main page. The central button, when being pushed, divides into “Check in,” “Review” and “Photo or Video” buttons. From the “Photo or Video” option users can switch from shots to video with a special toggle button.
New review possibilities for Yelp members are open now with the help of a new function. So the members can now preferably depict products, take note of a restaurant’s atmospere as well as add short describing videos to their review. On both the app and Web portal Yelp’s video content should start showing up in conjunction with text and photo reviews, but the examples could not be found at the time.
In spite of the new video capabilities, the updated Yelp app has insignificant user interface corrections and bug fixes.
