People can now surf the web together live from different computers

Co-surfing the web

Channel.me is a simple to use web based software that allows people to surf the web together simultaneously, chat and even add notes in real time.

It takes no tech savviness to type in the URL of the website you want to view with someone else, and it generates a URL for you to share with your surfing partner.

Working with relocating clients

Realtors working with clients that are relocating from another city immediately come to mind as the agent can pull up their site on Channel and give their clients the sharing URL so that the client can see what the Realtor is doing in their browser and the client can interact. “See the three bedroom on the left? I toured it today for you and think it is a fantastic fit.” “Oh, I love it, what is the kitchen like?” “Here, let me show you (click).”

The tool could help agents in an office setting with clients in person that want to immediately show off to a family member in real time.

Pair Channel.me with a speakerphone conversation and co-surfing the web could streamline the process of house hunting online with clients and their counterparts. It could reduce any confusion but more importantly can maximize enthusiasm.

Feature for real estate website owners

Another feature they are offering is for other users to surf together on your site via an embeddable button you can install in your site’s sidebar. We don’t believe most consumers know what the koala (or lemur? bear?) logo means yet, so it would require a tagline or some sort of explanation directing users to co-surf together. This is one way to keep your client on your site when shopping virtually with friends and family.

We have tested the software on Windows on a Google Chrome browser and recognize a slight delay, but it does work as promised.
