Viewer interactivity within live sessions is critical to engage a live audience. With interactivity, your audience can have an engaged, active video-viewing experience as they have a way to participate in a discussion, provide feedback or ask questions as they can in social media apps like YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc. that offer live video.   

VIDIZMO provides a number of interactivity options to its end-users during a live streaming session. One of them is a live chat feature for the session participants. To learn more about it, read How to Enable and View Interactivity Options in a Live Session
