    Add guest to stream

    Guests need to enter the stream to connect channels, but if guests don’t want to participate, they can leave as soon as they are added. The host will continue streaming directly to guests' channels.

Additional Information

  • Guests can add channels anytime before or during the stream while live.

  • Chats from your guests’ channels will be marked as “Paired”.
