Push notifications to breaking news complement the app to keep fans informed on-the-go.
“We are thrilled to bring a better mobile sports experience to the Android users that have waited so patiently,” commented Chat Sports CEO James Yoder. “We have successfully replaced the man power of a comprehensive 24/7 newsroom through technology, and now it’s fully available on mobile.”
The launch event featured a panel discussion by several key partners of Super Bowl 50: San Francisco 49ers COO Al Guido, SAP Chief Design Officer Sam Yen, and NFL VP of Fan Centric Marketing Aidan Lyons. Previewing exclusive plans for SB50 before an intimate group of sports and technology leaders, the event was one in Chat Sports’ nationwide series Minds Behind the Game.
