How does it work?
The Live Chat is visible for all viewers when the stream has started and all viewers can participate in it both using the web-version of the stream, as well as the TV-App.
As the picture below shows, you can also hide the live chat in the top right corner if you don't want to see it.
Where can the viewer see the chat?
Currently the Live Chat is available on both the web version of the stream and through the TV-app.
For the viewers, the Live Chat is only visible once the stream has started, it is not visible in the waiting room leading up to the start of the stream.
How do I set it up?
Once we have activated the function for you, you simply need to head over to the event page of the stream and click on the "Chat" tab. Then, click Create chat to enable the Live Chat, as you see here:
