Our platform is web-based, so you can livestream from both desktop and mobile devices. Viewers can access your live events anywhere they are connected to the internet! Because most mobile devices are vertically oriented, your stream will change from a horizontal to vertical view depending on if you use a desktop or mobile device. The same desktop broadcasting best practices also apply to mobile.
