Audience comments

This exciting new feature has been developed from our users needs during remote working. It enables the audience to input their thoughts and give feedback, adding energy to meetings and increasing engagement. 

It is a fast and instant way for participants to react to your presentation and give praise to the presenter. Comments or emojis will immediately appear on the screen and disappear without having to do anything.

You can enable or disable this feature by pressing the configure button.

The feature does not currently support the profanity filter and he comments will not be saved and can not be exported. Learn more about how to use Comments from Audience here.

We have now introduced some new content slides that will give you more variety to display your content in creative ways whilst keeping the design on point.

Big Slide

If you have something that you want to accentuate and appear as a big word across the slide then this is the perfect slide type for you. Make an impact and grab the audience’s attention with this slide.

Number slide

Just reached a target milestone? Or want to show how many people attended an event? You can grab the audience’s attention by using the number slide that counts up until your number is displayed on the screen.

What’s coming up.. 

Rumour has it that we are soon releasing some improvements to the quiz that will make the player experience much smoother! If you find that you sometimes don’t see when new questions appear and get caught off guard - we have a solution! Before each quiz question, you will get an indication of what question number you are on out of the total number of quiz questions, e.g. Question 2 of 5. This way you’ll have more control and can manually decide when you want the next quiz question to begin. This, of course, will be possible to turn on or off as you wish.

Keep your eyes peeled for the pop-up messages in-app to let you know when the feature is available.
