With the Easter weekend behind us, it’s time for our monthly review of Livestorm. Here’s a rundown of all things new at Livestorm in March 2018!
Our biggest update in march was without a doubt...
Livestorm Meet 💻
Meet is a new section of Livestorm, allowing you to run live video meetings with up to 4 participants plus 1 screen sharing, directly from your browser. As a Livestorm user, you get a link to your meeting room. All you need to do is share it with the person you'd like to meet with for them to join the call. See our support page for more information about Livestorm Meet.
After testing Meet internally and with a few select partners, we’re excited to release Livestorm Meet to the world. Use it for your internal meetings and for personalized onboarding demos with your most qualified leads.
Connection status alerts 🚥
Live streaming is a very demanding technology, especially when it comes to bandwidth usage. Until now, we didn’t provide much feedback on your connection status, so it was a lot of guesswork on your part if you or your participants experienced inconsistencies during your live stream.
As per this update, Livestorm now actively tests your connection quality and lets you know of any connectivity issue it detects. It will also actively try to reconnect you in case of a disconnect.
That said, our advice is always the same: make sure your internet connection is as reliable as possible before going live. And connect through an Ethernet connection rather than wifi if you can!
Livestorm now available in Lithuanian 🌍
Labas pasauli! Livestorm now speaks Lithuanian, along with the 14 other languages added so far.
Feature updates are not the only thing we worked on! Here are the latest news about the Livestorm team.

SaaScast is our monthly video poscast where we host great peers in the SaaS industry to talk about various topics. This month is conversational marketing.
Update: We experienced technical difficulties the day of the webinar (it was a Friday the 13th after all...). So we postponed for now and we'll let you know when we have a new date scheduled.
