This week, we’re excited to let you know about a new audience engagement feature that’s now available to all users.
It’s called Link Library, and there are no prizes for guessing what it does 😊
When your audience shares a link, it curates them all onto a single page—which the host can then share with everyone after the event.
The links are archived and accessible to anyone with that link forever.
Hence, Link Library.
You could use Link Library in your next livestream or webinar in a number of ways:
- Ask people to share a funny YouTube video
- Ask people what their favorite song is
- Ask people to share a link to their social media profile
- Ask people to share a book they’ve been reading
Login to your StreamAlive account to start using this new engagement feature today.

As the spending power of the younger generation increases, they are making more of their purchasing decisions based on influencers and livestreamers that they feel like they have a connection with. It’s like getting a recommendation from a friend.
Twitch’s newest competitor has swooped in and poached two of their most popular livestreamers in the space of 48 hours. Gamers xQc and Amouranth have signed non-exclusive deals to stream from the Kick platform, with xQc’s deal reportedly worth $100m over two years. Although they are non-exclusive, Twitch’s policies say you can’t cross-stream to another platform.
