Room Experience Improvements

Livestorm room experience just got better with two exciting improvements!

We’ve boosted our room performance and reduced CPU consumption up to 50% which provide a smoother experience during your webinars and meetings by optimizing loading time and screen share quality.

Our new indicator was also added to allow your hosts and speakers to capture your audience’s attention whenever they join the stage and start speaking up.

Those improvements are available from today on in your event room for you and all your participants.

Activate transcription (public beta) now to keep a written record of your event

 

Feature

  

If you’ve ever wanted to keep a written record of what has been said or presented during your meetings and webinars, this is now possible with our new transcription app, powered by Google!

This public beta will allow you to easily create meeting recaps and send them for language analysis. It can also be useful for people with hearing impairments to follow along.

How to use transcription?

The event host can enable it for a specific event. Then, in the event room, access it via the Apps menu to open it up on the sidebar.

Once the transcription app is enabled, every participant speaking and using Google Chrome will be transcribed.

You can stop the transcription anytime and download the transcript in the top right corner in .txt or .csv.

Note: you can only transcribe one language at a time, which is set to be the language of the event.

For help with this public beta, check out this Help Center article.
