Restream Studio Guests

You can now easily invite guests to your streams. The long-awaited feature is here. It allows inviting people into your stream.

Important: Currently this feature is working for a maximum of 10 participants on paid plans and 6 participants on the free plan. So it can be either you and six (6) or you and nine (9) connected guests, all at the same time together on your stream, depending on your subscription plan.

How to invite guests with Restream Studio?

1. When you are all set and prepared for your stream (or even when you are already live-streaming) simply click on the "Guests" icon and you will receive a link you can share with your guest to connect.

2. The guest will be able to join your stream by simply following the link. You can share our recommendations for guests with them.

Tip: Your guests will need to provide access to their microphone and camera in their browser.

3. As soon as your guests are connected you will see them in the left-hand side of your browser. There you can easily control your stream flow, show and hide guests on stream, remove guests and change the display view. In a similar manner, you can easily decide who will be visible on the stream and even turn off your own toggle, so that you hide yourself from the stream and only your guest is displayed alone.

Note: Guests can hear you after joining by link. You can hear your guests only after you added them to your stream by turning on the blue toggle as shown below. If you toggle off your own feed, your audio won't be available in live stream and guests can't hear you!

5. Also, you can use the "Mute" button and the volume bar to mute your guests or to adjust their volume. You also get a "Maximize" feature, which maximizes a participant as the primary active speaker hiding all other guests and you.

6. You can choose the way how your camera and guest's layout is displayed on stream anytime during or before the stream start.

7. The guests are free to leave anytime they want or you can kick off them from your stream. This way you can finish with some guests and others can join.

Important: You can't kick off the guests if their status is ON AIR, you need to hide guests from the stream first.

How cool is that? You are now able to make live shows and interviews right from your browser with all the awesome features of your personal Restream Studio.

Note: Studio session is preserved a short period of time after leaving it or refreshing the page. If you accidentally close the page, you have a little time to join the same room and guests will still be in place as well as the URL for the RTMP source.

More "Guests" and other features are coming. Stay tuned!
