What’s new? Winter 2021 product updates

We wanted to celebrate the 2021 winter with something special and worth remembering, because we believe live streaming should be both easy and joyful. The new year has inspired us to fulfill even more plans and dreams — all aimed at becoming better for our Restream community.

The winter updates are full of new amazing features, top-notch integrations, and, overall, nice improvements, thanks to your candid feedback! So let’s waste no more time and dive right into the changes we made this winter.

  New Online Lead Portal Studio features

  Chat overlay

Chat overlay is an amazing new update to Online Lead Portal Studio. You can now add a chat overlay with all incoming messages from all your chosen platforms directly in Studio. They will display on your stream as a live feed. Tracking your viewers’ comments while simultaneously live streaming has become that much easier and engaging.

  HQ sound

From now on, you can live stream with unprecedented HQ audio. Say goodbye to dull, low-quality sound on your broadcasts! This new feature is especially great for those who live stream audio podcasts often. However, considering that lots of viewers mostly listen to streams rather than watch them, everyone will benefit from this update.

  Volume slider

Have you ever experienced a case when one of your stream guests has a super loud, ear-piercing microphone? You are incredibly lucky if you haven’t, as now you can adjust the volume of your guests’ mics remotely! Moreover, the volume slider works for your mic as well as your uploaded videos.

  New graphics themes

We’ve added more customization options to help you make your live streams truly exceptional and viewer-friendly. You now have access to three different themes for your captions in Restream Studio. A better CTA means higher conversion rates!

  Better UX

Finer animations, a polished dashboard, avatar placeholders for guests, more layouts in Online Lead Portal Studio, no overlapping between highlights and layouts — these improvements can surely enhance your streaming experience.
