Cliqset brings real-time conversation to Boxee

With over 150 applications on Boxee we’ve seen a lot of creative apps, both visually and functionally, but today’s addition of Cliqset to Boxee has me in awe of how people are using Boxee’s platform. Cliqset is a new startup focused on letting you share, discuss, and discover your life online. It ties together 70 different services into an activity stream you can quickly share with friends and to social networks. Here’s a look at my activity stream through Cliqset, including Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and Yelp.

One of Cliqset’s main goals is to enable real-time communication across these networks and around specific events in your activity stream. They’ve taken this focus and applied it to their new Boxee app allowing friends to have a conversation around a specific video. Rob Spectre has ingeniously built this app to tap into Boxee’s “Now Playing” description so anytime you want to comment or chat about a certain video, just load the Cliqset app while the video is playing and it will automatically link you to comments from other people who are watching the video, or who have watched it in the past. Here’s a look at what Cliqset’s real-time video chat looks like on Boxee.

I sense many a long-distance date night taking place using this app : )

Cliqset just launched their Beta so sign up at Cliqset.com, and then install the app from the Boxee repository.
