An information interaction method for improving live streaming reliability
The filed patent (Publication Number: US20230319325A1) describes an information interaction method involving multiple devices and accounts. The method includes displaying a first page on a second device corresponding to a first account. The first page contains a first control. Upon a first operation on the first control, the second device sends first prompt information to a first device corresponding to the first account. The first control is then updated to a second control. The first prompt information is used to prompt the user of the first account to update a creation.
In response to a second operation on the second control, the second device pre-transfers a first object to the first account. The first object is transferred to the first account after the creation corresponding to the first account is updated. The method also involves displaying an object detail page upon a click operation on the second control. The object detail page includes an identifier of at least one object and a sending control corresponding to each object. By clicking on the sending control corresponding to the first object, the second device pre-transfers the first object to the first account.
The method further includes sending an object information acquisition request to a server upon a click operation on the second control. The second device receives object information from the server and generates the object detail page based on the received information. After pre-transferring the first object to the first account, the second device updates the second control in the first page to a third control. The third control indicates that the user of the first account has been successfully urged to update the creation. Additionally, the second device receives and displays second prompt information after the creation corresponding to the first account is updated. The second prompt information includes a link to the first account and copywriting information indicating that the creation has been updated under the urging of a second account.
The method also involves displaying a second page corresponding to a second account, which includes a fourth control. Upon a click operation on the fourth control, the second device displays a third page containing urged information. The urged information includes an urging account and an urging time corresponding to the urging account. The third page may also include an urging record control, which, upon a click operation, displays records of urging other accounts through the second account.
The patent also describes an electronic device comprising at least one processor and a memory that executes the information interaction method described in the patent. Additionally, there are non-transitory computer-readable storage mediums that store computer execution instructions to implement the information interaction method.
