Less Engagement - Barrier in Monetization

  • Global Latency Issue: Experienced significant delays and lag in connecting users across different regions, particularly between Australia, EU, and USA.
  • Concurrency Limitations: Difficulty to handle concurrent sessions efficiently due to high volume of users joining in short span of time.
  • Recording Initialization time: Inconsistent and delay in recording initiation led to missed critical user interactions, hindering effective analysis and review.
  • Security Concerns: Need enhanced security with trusted compliance to safeguard user anonymity with data encryption.
  • Limited Moderation Capabilities: Struggled to identify potentially harmful or inappropriate behavior, impacting user safety and platform integrity.
