World Video Challenge is a feature that was first introduced in Just Dance 2016, where it replaced World Dance Floor for the eighth-generation consoles. It later re-appeared in Just Dance 2017 along side World Dance Floor. It is an online mode where people can challenge players worldwide.
The World Video Challenge mode is almost related to the Challenger mode from Just Dance 2015. In the mode, you can be able to challenge players around the world and beat them by obtaining a score that is higher than their score while the camera on your Wii U gamepad/Kinect/PlayStation Camera/PlayStation Eye will record you dancing. After completing the challenge, you can have the option to send a message to the player that you have won/lost against, such as "Well played", "Cool moves!", "I love your style!", and other kinds of messages. You can also have the option to upload your video so that when players challenge you, they can see the video that you have shared. The mode does not require a camera recording you to play. World Video Challenge also allows for songs from Just Dance Unlimited to be played, provided that the player has a pass.
On Just Dance 2017 (with the mode renamed "Video Challenge"), players now compete in a best-of-3 format, and players are able to create their own challenges from scratch without having to play against an opponent in order to submit a video or score challenge.
"Speak with your mind" Messages
After playing a challenge, you will be able to send a message to the player you have won/lost against. Here is a list of the following messages that you can send:
Neutral: "Will you dance with me?" "One more time!" "Let's dance again!" "Well played" "Looking for some revenge?" "One more dance?"
Congratulate: "Cool moves!" "I had a great time" "Great Show!" "What a performance!" "Impressive!" "That's a fair win." "You're way better than I am." "You're out of my league!" "Congrats on winning." "Well done, champion." "You're a dance master!"
Taunt (only available when winning a challenge): "I'm better than you!" "I'm so strong!" "I'm the master of the dancefloor!" "No one is as good as me!" "I'm the ultimate Just Dancer!"
Sore loser (only available when losing a challenge): "You're cheating, right?" "I wasn't focused!" "You're not that good." "Beginner's luck!" "I let you win..."
Challenge: "Try again!" "Maybe next time!" "Are you kidding me?" "You won't beat me!" "Show me what you've got!" "Give me another shot." "Rematch?" "It's not over yet!" "Just you wait!" "You won't win next time."
Fun (only available when a video of the challenger is seen): "That was entertaining" "It was crazy!" "You're so funny!" "You made me laugh!" "Ha ha ha!"
Dancefloor (only available when a video of the challenger is seen): "I want a dancefloor like that!" "Perfect place to dance" "Your dancefloor rocks!" "Cool dancing room" "Nice place to be"
Style (only available when a video of the challenger is seen): "I like your outfit" "Perfect dancing attire" "You look amazing!" "Nice clothes" "I love your style!"
When playing a song from Just Dance Unlimited, if the song buffers, the video will stop recording and will be replaced with a red warning sign. However, the starbar will still keep moving and your score will still be counted for.
If a song is paused in the middle of recording a video, the video will cease to continue recording and therefore cannot be submitted.
Buffering will also cause this error.
Occasionally, when starting a World Video Challenge, the opponent will start with the score they got on the song. This was later fixed.
On camera consoles, the player is unable to play as the same coach as the opponent on quartet routines.
On camera consoles, the color of the player's "name bar" and video border are based on the slot they stand in when starting the song as usual. However, the color of their score meter will be according to the vacant slot they were first detected to be standing in upon the loading of the coach selection screen.
On Just Dance 2017, if the challenger scored at least 11,000 points, the Superstar sound effect plays on the coach selection screen and the Superstar graphic and silver stars are in place when starting the song.
On Just Dance 2017, if one tries to restart the song or back out of it (either from the pause menu or the coach selection screen), it will result in an automatic loss. Also, when continuing an existing match, the song is not revealed until after selecting the match on the menu.
This feature is not on the Nintendo Switch, due to the fact that the Switch does not have a camera.
