Announcing Livestorm’s Video Engagement Platform and Livestorm Plugins

We’re proud to announce the launch of our Video Engagement Platform, an all-in-one platform to engage and delight your audiences!

Discover a complete video engagement experience

We’re proud to announce the launch of our Video Engagement Platform with unmatched features for audience engagement. As the world has switched to hosting more online meetings, webinars, and virtual events, businesses have been looking for a way to engage their audiences.

Research shows that this trend is here to stay. In fact, a Livestorm survey conducted in April 2021 of 1,128 American workers found that video conferencing will continue to be an important part of the workday. Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they expect their use of video conferencing to remain the same (44 percent) or increase (24 percent) for the next 12 months.

Livestorm’s video engagement solution fights screen fatigue by optimizing every action surrounding an event: from promotion to the actual event itself and the follow-up afterward. This makes it easier for you to customize your events from start to finish and choose from a host of engagement features to delight your audiences.

You know you can trust Livestorm for complete analytics, a robust emailing system, and a host of engagement features like chat, question, polls, emoji reactions, and virtual backgrounds, to name a few. Joining the list of our video engagement features is the latest addition: Livestorm Plugins.

What is a Livestorm Plugin SDK?

Our new Livestorm Plugin SDK helps you tailor your events to meet your exact needs. Thanks to plugins, developers worldwide can build features within Livestorm without the hassle of learning our codebase. Novice coders and experienced developers alike can build Livestorm plugins in a matter of minutes.

Connect your audiences, engage participants, and build anything you can think of in a flash. The opportunities are endless: build custom backgrounds, linked shopping carts, custom quizzes, or even add chats and social feeds to an event room, similar to a Chrome Extension. In the coming months, we will open a marketplace for these Plugins, some developed by Livestorm and others by customers or third-party developers.

Livestorm Plugins are now accessible to a select group of customers, with full access for all customers planned by Sept 2021 on the Livestorm marketplace. You can find out more about the Plugins SDK here.
