Tumblr is launching new live video feature

Yahoo-owned blogging platform Tumblr is set to foray into the live streaming video arena, with the launch of a new live video feature on Tuesday, June 21.

Though Tumblr has not officially announced the forthcoming live video feature, it has recently added a cryptic teaser page to its website. Hinting at the imminent addition of the live video feature, the teaser page promises that the new feature help Tumblr users "learn the metaphysical truth about your Tumblr."

The teaser – which appears to be a regular page of a Tumblr user – was first spotted by Twitter user David Chartier on Sunday, via the blog livevideo.tumblr.com.

Going by the indications from the teaser page about Tumblr’s upcoming live video feature, the live video lineup will seemingly include a broadcast "from the surface of Mars" at 4 p.m. EDT on June 21.

In addition, some of the other live video content to be presented by the Tumblr streaming video service after the mentioned broadcast will include a kind of organizational video, as well as a Q&A session with New York graphic designer and blogger Adam J. Kurtz. The schedule of the video times reveals that the live videos to be presented by Tumblr on June 21 will be short and concise.
