About Roposo and How it Works

Mayank says it also differentiates by creating a TV-like viewing experience and offering editing tools that make it easy for people to start broadcasting (about 30 percent of Roposo’s users have created content).

Video creators can also make money based on how much user engagement their content generates. The app offers a seamless, new-age TV-like browsing experience with a full-screen view and 25+ interest-based channels.
