Announcements with Lower Thirds

Modified on Wed, 18 Oct 2023 at 03:53 PM

The Announcement feature will allow the host/presenter to publish an in-room announcement for all the users inside the room to see for a certain duration that can be set by their preference. In addition, it also displays a Lower Third at the bottom left if the event has started.

    2. The textbox under the header "Announcement" is where you type or copy/paste the announcement to be made
