these things are being developed overtime as dom has said. So it is gonna be a little before we see those things.

Blocking accounts is already a thing? Are you on android?
And the account reporting is also missing, was a reported bug from earlier too.

Yeah I’m on android. Forgot to put that into consideration.

Yeah I understand. This app has a lot of potential and I can’t wait to see it.

Android is missing things, account blocking/profile reporting is there on iOS, I’m assuming they forgot, for now you can flag and say you don’t like it and the ability to block should be within there

A few things if noticed and seen people on the app ask about is
seeing the list of who follows you
A way to pause a byte
Dms would be really cool
A way to edit your captions after you’ve posted a byte
Livestreaming

On android, report an accounts video, say “I don’t like it” and you’ll have the option to block them.

We also need a way to share our Bytes profile on other social networks

I’d really REALLY love to see individual videos float up to the top of the screen when I film them, so I could rearrange them when I film. It sucks to think, ‘okay, so if I want to film this shot, I’m gonna have to get back into position twice, instead of doing two shots in the same place and editing.’

This would be such a simple thing to add, and I really hope Byte listens!

i do think that byte needs a lot better previewing of where i am dragging a clip marker to when cropping videos, and as fine a crop down to .ms as is possible. one thing i sincerely loved doing with vine is making lots of little micro cuts and edits and seeing what would happen

low stakes features right now, but these are things long term users will want

I’d love to see more channels, and yeah definitely hashtags
but like for people who make edits, I’d love to see an editing channel, or something like that

YES! Trying new stuff in editing is my passion, but I don’t really know where to start on byte, as I credit the original creators for the source material.

Would be amazing if I could specify a byte I used in my edit, even if it’s just one. A similar concept is the sounds in TT

Also… a URL scheme / deep links… IE…

  • Ability to share videos as shortcuts to them through the app… rather than a video download. (e.g. Clicking https://byte.co/video/T4GH298GH289 or byte:video?id=T4GH298GH289 would take you to a certain video by launching the app on mobile, or displaying a web page on desktop)

  • Ability to share profiles as shortcuts to them through the app… (e.g. Clicking https://byte.co/user/mrsimon or byte:user?name=mrsimon would take you to my profile by launching the app on mobile, or displaying a web page on desktop)

Yep! That’d be great. Actually a friend of mine who can’t properly run android emulators complained to me about that, I assume they were watching tiktoks on the website a lot.
