The Live Stream feature allows app users to join a live stream by tapping a feature icon, instantly launching the live stream on a mobile device or computer. This feature is perfect for highlighting your keynote session, or linking directly to your live stream if you are using one for all of your sessions. If you would like individual links for each of your sessions, the Live Stream section of the session may be a better fit.

Users can view the Live Stream in the Web App, or on the Mobile App. The Web App for computers is a great option to allow users to view the Live Stream, and engage with app features in a single window. The Mobile App is perfect when users are on the go. They can even send a streaming link from the Mobile App to their email, so they can quickly move to the Web App when they're back at their desk.

Enable the Live Stream Feature

Add the Live Stream feature to your feature list, and click Edit on the Live Stream feature icon. 

Choose your Live Stream provider from the drop-down, and enter the meeting or live stream URL. Click Save.

Live Stream Platforms

Socio’s Live Stream feature seamlessly integrates with the following leading live streaming platforms:

  • Zoom (Recommended) 
  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Twitch
  • Wistia
  • DailyMotion
  • Facebook
  • Streamable
  • SoundCloud

Other Live Stream Platforms

Don't see your preferred live streaming platform in this list? Not to worry.

Select the "Other" option, and you will be prompted to enter the required Live Stream URL. Optionally, enter the Embed Code provided from your Live Stream platform.

⭐️ Keep in mind, the embed code is optional — however, if you don't include the embed code and users are using the Web App to view the Live Stream, the stream will open in a new tab rather than inside the Web App. 

⚠️ Caution, we strongly recommend thoroughly testing any "Other" providers to ensure that the behavior is as expected.

Pro tips! 😎

  • You can add as many Live Stream features as you want. However, we recommend adding only one or two to keep your home page clean. If you would like individual links for each of your sessions, check out the Live Stream section of a session.
  • The multi-device capability allows users to toggle between their preferred devices for video consumption and networking. We recommend giving your attendees guidelines on how you want them to join and interact with your Live Stream.
