To join a Live Session as a participant, simply click on the link shared by your host. If you join after the session has already started, you’ll automatically sync to the host’s current scene.
Live Sessions provides participants with an interactive experience. Through clickable links, emoji reactions, and navigation and sync controls, participants have the opportunity to interact with the host and the story itself from the comfort of your own device.
Clickable links in the scene
Links in Live Sessions are clickable, so participants can head over to corresponding pages in a new tab. Links are a quick and easy way to guide your audience to other parts of your story - a Youtube video, a sign-up website, your social media page, and more.
As the host is presenting, participants can provide feedback using emoji reactions without breaking the presentation flow.
Navigation and Sync
There may be times when participants join a Live Session after it’s started, or when participants want to look back on an earlier scene. With Live Sessions, you can navigate back to scenes that the host has already covered. You will not be able to go ahead of the host, but will be able to quickly sync up with the host at any time during the Live Session.
