Product Update: Turn an Online Viewer into a Presenter

Even if you haven’t made someone a presenter in the set up process, the producer can bring one or multiple people watching online into the main live video feed at any time during the event!

One of the most important times in a service or community gathering together is the opportunity to hear from one another. Your faith community might have people send in a praise or prayer request ahead of the service, stand up and share a need, or go to the front to give an announcement.

When it comes to sharing prayer requests in a fully online or hybrid service, the ability to hear the voice of people in your community can get harder to do from a technical perspective. Altar Live helps make it easy, and allows everyone in person and online to actually hear from one another.

Having people watching from home “go live” and share prayer requests or give an announcement.

Remember that everyone watching online can have their video on or off. Even if you haven’t made someone a presenter in the set up process, the producer can bring one or multiple people watching online into the main live video feed at any time during the event!

Let’s say someone has a last minute announcement or prayer request to give from home. Maybe they raise their hand on their video screen or send a message to the chat. The producer can find them in the member list, change their status from a member to a presenter - ta-da! They are now a presenter, and the producer can turn on their audio or push their video live to everyone watching in person and online.

Go ahead, and try it out!
