What are Livestream Platforms?

Livestream platforms are software that allow users to host live-streaming events through one platform. These events may take place in a one-on-one setting, in group meetings, or as larger online events like webinars or panel discussions. The software is designed to bring people who aren’t able to meet in person due to distance, sickness, or any other circumstance, together as if they were in the same room. Most livestream software offers access to the live event feed for up to thousands of streamers. Many products offer the capability of connecting to the livestream through multiple platforms and/or social media sites.

In today's digital world, the ability to promote your or your company’s business online is a necessity. Likewise, the ability to connect with people from anywhere around the globe is an essential part of networking when either making connections or building your brand. The ability to host livestreams allows businesses to do just this. It also provides marketing teams with a great opportunity to promote new products and reach a broader audience.

In addition to marketing and promotional events, livestream software can be used for situations such as interviews and tutorials. These tools can be incredibly useful in today’s workplace, especially if hosting large online events that need to be live-streamed is part of your digital marketing strategy.

If you plan on using livestream software for work and expect a lot of people to be using it, it’s best to go with a product that’s user-friendly and will be easy for the rest of your team to learn how to use.
