New Features

  • Pew view/watch parties: The long awaited watch parties have arrived! One of the most unique features about Altar Live is ability for your online attendees to actually talk and see one another during the service in small groups. Now, when you encourage people to “pass the peace” or pray with someone, they can actually turn to a neighbor or go find someone to say hi to!
  • Easier sign ups: You can now sign up or log in with Google! The sign up process also now happens all within the live event - no need to leave the event at all.
  • Fully supported on Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Microsoft Edge: To help maximize accessibility for your people, you can successfully join an Altar Live event on any browser on a laptop.

Updates

Going into this weekend, our team is rapidly working on addressing the following issues:

  • Sharing links on Facebook: links from Altar Live are mistakenly being denied due to Facebook’s community policy rules. Our support team is working with Facebook to resolve the issue.
  • More updates to watch parties: There are more changes coming to stabilize and optimize watch parties next week. We’ll keep you updated!

Mobile apps are being released December 20 with video streaming and chat.
