Firetalk in an always-on interactive video platform that allows content creators to engage with and monetize their audiences. The official product launch is scheduled to be in July at Vidcon. The company is owned and operated by AVM Software.

History[edit]

Firetalk was created in 1997 by Multitude Communications in South San Francisco. The product, Firetalk, had its birth in a program that Multitude created called "FireTeam". FireTeam was a multi-user game played over the internet. The game got good reviews and the most favorable review came from the VoIP feature that FireTeam used so that users could communicate and plan over the internet. It was at that time that Multitude decided to branch off and create a program strictly for VoIP called Firetalk and Multitude adopted a "DBA" as Firetalk.

A mere four years later, Firetalk announced that it would need to shut down. Despite claiming to have 2 million users, it had only a few thousand paid subscribers.[1] Firetalk's web site address, firetalk.com, was later bought by Paltalk.

In 2015, Firetalk relaunched as an always-on live-streaming platform for content creators.
