Vevo's been iterating aggressively lately, rolling out a major site redesign earlier in the month and debuting a new app that integrates with Facebook's Timeline. The company plans to continue that momentum by bringing its service to at least six more countries this year. CEO Rio Caraeff offered the figure in an interview with paidContent, stating that "our big priority is to make the service more available in more territories as quickly as possible." Vevo is currently available in the US and Canada, and launched in the UK last April. While 30 percent of Vevo's views still come from YouTube, Caraeff touted mobile devices and tablets as the quickest-growing segment of Vevo's offerings, while also noting that the company's recent Xbox Live debut was "exceeding our expectations." With the CEO stating that the company was "in a good position" with regard to future partnering opportunities, we wouldn't be surprised to see Vevo to continue to grow its portfolio in the coming months.
