Q. How do I add background music?
We are currently working on the Audio Mix feature where you can play music from other apps in the background. In the meantime, you can play background music through your laptop or speaker while doing a live show. Make sure to place your phone near the source for better sound quality!
Q. How can I get better audio quality?
Feel free to connect your phone with an external microphone! It’s not a must but it will improve the audio quality. Another tip is to be in a quiet setting with minimal background noises and speak directly into your phone microphone.
Also, if you wear your headset while broadcasting, the audio quality may drop.
Q. How should I deal with trolls in a live show?
If you encounter trolls or users that are bothering you, feel free to report to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also block users by going to their profile page. From there, click on the three dots on the top right corner. After you've successfully blocked a user, they will not be able to see or interact with your account & content.
