If they're on Alively, they will be redirected to watch it there and if they're not, they will be able to watch the video by clicking to watch it on a mobile page.
The latest update also includes notification improvements and bug fixes. Now you'll get a notification when your friends watch a video you shared with them. You'll also see notifications about videos you've missed and friends who have recently joined Alively.

Alively Public Beta in the U.S. App Store
August 23, 2016
Today, we're excited to start our public beta in the U.S. with the release of Alively, a new app available in the U.S. App Store that makes it easy to capture & share everyday moments privately with your friends through live or recorded video.
Alively is only available on iOS in the U.S. App Store and will be coming to more markets soon. We're excited for you to try and hear your feedback. Here's the story behind Alively and what inspired us to build it:
Life is made up of moments. Moments that are worth sharing. From the profound to the everyday, we believe all moments are special because of who we share them with. Sharing those moments is what connects us and makes us feel alive.
That's why we're building Alively. We want to make it easy and fun to capture and share those everyday moments as they happen with friends. Real moments that go beyond the highlight reel. Moments that people in our lives wouldn't want to miss. Shared moments, in real time. We think the best way to do that is through high quality, privately shared live video, so friends can share and experience that moment with you as if they're there.
Alively makes sharing video easy by letting you pre-select a friend or group of friends who you want to share with before you start capturing it. You can also start recording instantly and add friends to share with as you're recording. Only people you shared with can watch live and comment to participate in that moment with you as it's happening or they can catch the video later. And you no longer need to worry about freeing up space on your phone to record video because we upload the video and store it securely in the cloud without taking up any space on your phone.
This is Alively. We want you to be able to share moments without missing the very moment you're trying to capture. Share everyday moments in the moment with Alively.
