How to get started with Tango as a live streamer:

It’s fun, simple, and easy to start streaming on Tango!

To Download the Tango app head to the App Store or Google Play:

Head over to your app store of choice and download the world’s #1 live streaming app! It’s 100% free for sign-up and registration.

Register for an account

Download Tango to your smartphone and follow a few simple instructions to create your account. Make sure to choose a secure password and login details that you won’t forget.

Set up your profile

Once you’ve created your account, you can start setting up your profile. You don’t have to provide everything the prompt asks for, but the Tango algorithm can create a much more enjoyable and personalized streaming/viewing experience if you do.

You can edit any information about yourself by heading to your profile. To do this ➡️ click on the button in the top left of the screen, where your photo is. This is where you can edit any part of your profile, see your followers, fill coins, and turn your diamonds into cash.

Photos and Statuses

Tango is, first and foremost, a live streaming app that you can use to connect, share, and earn. In order to keep you connected to your friends and fans, Tango has a status page that allows you to post updates and messages for your followers.

Provide updates, a look at your life, or sneak peeks of future streams. It’s also a good idea to give shoutouts to your biggest gifters and most loyal fans!

Ready to Earn Money? – Set up a Payoneer Account

Payoneer is safe and reliable for worldwide use.

Payoneer is the payment processing platform that Tango uses. It allows you to take the diamonds you’ve been given during your live streams and translate them into real-world cash.

For you to be able to convert your in-app diamonds into money, you’ll need at least 10,000 diamonds, which are equivalent to $50 (5,000 diamonds for your first-time redemption). You can redeem up to 400,000 diamonds ($2,000 USD) per day and typically receive your money within 2-5 business days.

Start Streaming

Live stream from anywhere and everywhere!

Once you’ve finished setting everything up, you’re ready to start your first live stream. One of the best things about streaming on Tango is that there’s a ready-built audience of millions waiting to see you! 

Our global audience means that viewers are online 24/7 – so you can start live-streaming whenever want and there’ll be crowds watching from all over the world.

To get started, log in to the app on your smartphone and then click the camera icon on the homepage. You can pick a preview image, add hashtags, and you can also choose between public and private streams. You can even set a minimum gift account to set up paid live streams for premium audience members.

Use live streaming for its #1 purpose

In person or digitally, Live Streaming is best when you’re connecting with others.

Contrary to popular belief, streaming isn’t about putting on the best show, winning the most battles, or being the funniest, prettiest, most charming, etc.

At the end of the day, the driving force that keeps people coming back is connection.

Your goal should be getting to know your audience and making them feel like they’re a part of your “streaming club.” 

That said, people also love a great stream, and there are tons of great ways to keep people entertained while making some money:

  • Music
  • Dance
  • Comedy
  • Cooking

If performing isn’t for you, being a fun hots who loves great conversation is more than enough for many. 

Treat your viewers like you would treat a guest at a party that you’re throwing. Ask them questions, make jokes, be authentic, and have fun!

Create a Plan

For first time streamers, having a plan is the best way to calm your nerves.

One of the best ways to get more comfortable live streaming longer is to create a plan about what you’re going to stream. Avoid any live awkwardness by having an outline of what you’d like your stream to be about.

Not only is it more fun for your audience to see you actively engaging, you’ll have more fun as well! 

Share on Other Social Networks

It’s possible to build an audience purely through Tango, but you’ll find it much easier if you also link other social media sites to your account. You can use this to promote your streams to your fans and followers from your other social networking sites.

This is particularly important in the early days when you’re just starting out. You’ll want to keep promoting your Tango account any way you can to make sure that people are coming in and enjoying your streams.

Check Your Analytics


Tango makes sure to provide useful data to its users. These tools – located in the statistics tab in your profile settings – can be super powerful when you’re trying to evaluate the success of your live streams. 

See what works and what doesn’t so that your future streams are the best they can possibly be.

Use them to figure out certain details like:

  • What time you should live stream.
  • How long your livestreams should be.
  • Your best performances.
  • Who you should do battles with.

At the beginning of your livestreaming adventure it may be a little difficult to know if your success is due to proper planning or just dumb luck. As you continue streaming over time, check your analytics in order to get the best, most reliable information to help improve your broadcasts.

Which brings us to our next topic…

Keep improving

Consistency is key. You’ll go far if you keep at it!

Your goal should be to continue to get better over time, constantly testing out new approaches to figure out what works best for you and your audience.

Live streaming is incredibly personal, what works for one broadcaster might not work for everyone. 

We have plenty of great tips on making money and improving your broadcast, but nothing can ever beat personal experience. So keep checking your analytics and tweaking your streams until you’ve found your perfect broadcast!

Upgrading your gear

One of the best parts about Tango is that you don’t need anything more than a smartphone to start live streaming. While you can still use your phone and have terrific broadcasts, over time you might want to consider some incremental improvements to make the best possible shows.

This might be something as simple as just having a couple of extra lights in your room. You can also order basic lapel mics for $30 dollars and cameras that you can attach to your phone to improve the video quality.

The number one thing to always pay attention to is having a great internet connection. No amount of hardware will make up for having low broadband. If you’re having internet issues then that should be the first thing you improve.

It’s not necessary when streaming on Tango, but tools like a ring light can add a lot to your stream!

Still nervous about live streaming? Tip: Don’t Be

Trying something new is always nerve-wracking in the beginning, but the beauty of live is that nobody expects perfection. Part of the fun is making mistakes, laughing, and continuing anyways.

The more you try and script your live streams the less people will be interested. Remember, streaming is about enjoying the moment and connecting in real time! It’s exciting, it’s fun, and it’s easy to fall in love with. 

So get out there, stream, and, most importantly, have a blast!
