Product updates

We’ve made some key changes to the app to improve your experience.

The light registration page just got lighter

To give your registrants the most seamless process possible, we've revamped the light registration page to make it even lighter! From now on, a registrant will be asked only for their email address upon signing up or signing in. This simplified workflow applies to everyone, whether you're a team member, guest speaker, or attendee.

New notification when you speak while muted

"We can't hear you. You’re on mute!" If this sounds familiar to you, then this new feature will come in handy. Livestorm will now detect when you're speaking while muted and display a message to remind you!

A better way to control the location of your video traffic

Need help keeping your video traffic to a specific region for data privacy reasons? Our team is pleased to announce the ability to set your server locations (auto, EU, and the US) for your video traffic!

For example, you can select the EU-based video server option to ensure that all the video traffic for your events gets processed by servers located in Europe only. Don't worry, anyone located outside this region would still be able to access the video streams.

Note that this feature is currently available for Livestorm enterprise customers only. To upgrade your account, we invite you to contact our sales team at sales@livestorm.co!
