Live Q&A: questions and applause

Live Q&A

Keeping your audience engaged from start to finish during your live streams is key to a successful virtual event.

That’s why we’re introducing a new live Q&A experience built for virtual events. We’ve also added a new feature to make your live streams more engaging.

Live Q&A

With the new integrated live Q&A, participants can ask questions before and during a stream.

We’ve heard from hosts and participants: you dislike having both Q&A and live chat on your virtual event. Hosts find it complicated to manage both, while participants never know what is being answered.

SpotMe’s live Q&A is designed to keep discussions focused, and at the same time make the live stream feel dynamic.

The moderation panel lets you decide which questions get displayed to the viewers. Besides the user-submitted questions, you can prepare your own questions and add them in advance.

Finally, as the speaker answers a question, the moderator can display the question on the live stream. This way everyone knows what is being discussed and can send follow-up questions.

One thing comes up often when talking to speakers about virtual events. They don’t get any live feedback form their audience. In a in-person event, it’s easy: people smile, cheer and applaud.

Today we’re introducing Applause. A simple and fun way to give feedback to speakers during a live stream.

The audience can easily say “thank you” or show they are happy with Applause. By simply clicking 👏 everyone watching the live stream can see you clap and join in.

We hope that Applause will have a positive impact on the speaker and participant experience at virtual events.

Live Q&A and applause are available right away on the Marketplace to SpotMe customers. If you are not a customer yet, take our product tour to see them in action.
