Livestorm vs WebinarGeek: features

You don't need to download any platform to use Livestorm, simply launch it directly from your browser. WebinarGeek is a cloud-based application, meaning it is download-free and can be accessed from any device. Livestorm webinars come with a host of promotion tools like built-in social sharing and registration filters, both of which are missing from WebinarGeek. In addition, in both Livestorm and Webinar Geek you can customize registration pages and emails for better branding, and you can embed registration pages anywhere with a widget. Many of Livestorm's features are designed to engage and activate audiences. Polls, chats, and CTAs are standard across most webinar platforms.

Livestorm has a Plugin SDK that makes it very simple for developers of any skill or experience level to build additions to events, webinars, or meetings, in just a few lines of code.

Livestorm's App Marketplace consists of native integrations, plugins, and thousands of one-click integrations powered by Zapier. WebinarGeek also has a Zapier integration.
