Browser-based meetings

Use Altar Live 7 days a week - small groups, prayer meetings, or social gatherings can all be hosted on the same platform. No more sending people different links for different platforms.

events feel natural

Attendees move freely between breakout tables

The Host doesn't have to do all the work - let your attendees choose which breakout tables and rooms they want to join! People can move freely between groups, and the Host can easily pull everyone back together when needed.

Share content with everyone

Easily watch a video together as a group

Screen share on most platforms has terrible audio quality. On Altar, you can easily share a video or audio file for everyone to watch or listen to at the same time. Watch a high-quality video together and then discuss afterwards!
