Engage fans on your live stream with live chat

Create a digital equivalent of a stadium and give your audience the experience to interact, celebrate, and mourn together at every goal, shot, basket or whistle.

Don't just engage your audience. Captivate them

Your audience loves to share live experiences with friends and fans in real-time – often on social media platforms competing for fan attention. Live chat gives you the toolkit to draw in and preserve active audience engagement on your platform.

Build a virtual stadium and amplify your fan's engagement

Leverage messaging data to optimize and understand audience engagement. Whether audiences interact live with influencers, react to events with rich media, read in-chat analysis, or play in-chat games, your platform will be the virtual stadium where fans love to go.

Open a new channel to talk and listen to your audience

Chat opens a direct channel to interact with your viewers. From targetted commerce to subscription conversion – support your monetization strategy with messaging and sentiment data.
