November 30, 2020 • About 3 min. read

In November we announced our $30 million series B funding round, launched cool changes for the event room, and published a new ebook. Read on to find out more!

Livestorm Raises a Series B

We’ve raised a $30 million Series B to accelerate product development and our expansion into North America. The round was led by Aglaé Ventures and Bpifrance Digital Venture, with participation from Raise Ventures and IDInvest. This brings Livestorm’s total amount raised to date to $35 million.

Product updates 🚀

In November we improved the way your dashboard looks and made going on stage easier! Here is what we launched this month:

New events view

We made some slight changes to your dashboard. We’ve optimized how the key metrics are computed, making them faster and more efficient. We’ve also shifted to a new view that will be called Events instead of Webinars.

A better way to go on stage

We've revamped the way you go on stage for webinars and meetings to make it easier.

From now on:

  • If you click on the "Join stage" button and you have previously joined the stage from the same browser or device, you'll join the stage directly.
  • There is a new feature that allows you to join the stage with your microphone or camera off.
  • Finally, when you enter the webinar room as a team member, you won't be prompted to go on stage upon entering. You will need to click on the "Join stage" button to take the stage.

Room improvements

We’ve made two small improvements to the event room this month. We’ve improved the messages you see before your event begins. This makes it easier for you to know when the event is beginning. And the number of connected people will now be displayed next to the "notifications" icon. It will be visible for Team Members (Hosts and Moderators) and Guest Speakers.

Dial-in support for speakers

Team members and guest speakers will be able to dial-in to webinars and meetings and be heard by everyone else.

Request to enable someone’s mic or camera

Along with our recent redesign of the room, we've removed the ability for team members to unmute or enable the camera of people on stage.

Coming up next 🔮

We’re making it possible to resize your stream when presenting slides or screen sharing, and we’re working on an improved fullscreen mode.
